RAD-CON JUST GOT GREENER: ADDING CO-GENERATION EQUIPMENT FROM ENERGY RESOURCE CONTROL

(Cleveland, OH USA) – RAD-CON, a leading supplier of 100% hydrogen, bell-type batch annealing furnaces (BAF), has announced an addition to the RAD-CON Group: Energy Resource Control Corporation (ERC), a provider of equipment that generates protective atmospheres for a variety of industrial processes. ERC (www.protectiveatmospheres.com), a privately held company, is also based in Cleveland.

“The addition of ERC makes available a complementary product that can reduce energy costs at our existing customers, as well as other annealing facilities. RAD-CON’s atmosphere control expertise in the annealing process allows application of this technology in a wider range of facilities. RAD-CON’s global operation will be offering this equipment worldwide, including areas outside the annealing market." stated Mr. Christopher Messina, RAD-CON President.

ERC’s primary product is a co-generator that produces high purity nitrogen and steam, typically used in metal processing facilities that clean product using steam-heated pickle lines, and heat treat product in furnaces using a protective atmosphere.

Messina explained, “ERC and RAD-CON serve the same niche market: ferrous and non-ferrous annealing and other heat treating. A project to install an ERC co-generator typically delivers a one-year payback on energy alone, not to mention potential quality benefits.”

Current ERC President and company founder, Mr. Bud Weiland will remain to assist with marketing and sales, providing a life-long expertise in protective atmospheres. ERC offices will be located at the RAD-CON headquarters in Cleveland.
