Italian Gas Supplier Buys AFC-Holcroft EZ-Series Endothermic Gas Generators

AFC-Holcroft in Wixom, Michigan USA, as part of a joint working agreement with SIAD S.p.A. in Bergamo, Italy, has supplied 2 endothermic gas generators for SIAD customers. Thus far, two endothermic gas generators, AFC-Holcroft EZ 4500 Series, are being installed in Europe, and other projects are active for installation around the East European Countries.

Each company was attracted to the other's international reputation for quality and reliability. SIAD chose to recommend AFC-Holcroft endothermic generators due to their reliability, robustness, ease of maintenance, standardization, modularity, and stability of the gas composition. Affiliating with AFC-Holcroft allows SIAD to extend their gas services into areas where endothermic gas is needed for their Direct Injection Carbon Potential Control "DICPC" system.

Stefano Dentella, has been working in the past 39 years in SIAD application technology development and he says, that knowing the reliability of the AFC-Holcroft system and having necessity to install in the East European Countries very reliable equipment, selected AFC Holcroft as the best partner for SIAD.

Marc Ruetsch, Managing Director of AFC-Holcroft Europe says, "The receipt of these two early orders proves a good synergy between both parties, and the industry has already begun to take note." Adds Ruetsch, "The possibilities for our joint effort are wide-reaching, with both of our companies enjoying a global reach and worldwide customer base."

AFC-Holcroft and SIAD continue to collaborate on identifying additional heat treating applications where protective atmosphere is needed.
