Nederman wins foundry filtration order

The Nederman solutions include extraction and filtration at the induction furnace, shake out, shot blasting and fettling. Nederman will also deliver solutions for efficient sand plant management and active carbon filters to reduce odours.

The filter equipment will be produced at Nederman’s plant in Suzhou, China, and the installation will be project managed from Nederman’s technical departments in Bangkok and Suzhou. Installation and commissioning will start in the third quarter of 2012 and will be completed during the first quarter of 2013.

The foundries - one in China and two in Thailand - produce components for the automotive industry. Japan’s Aisin Takaoka is expanding its capacity with new casting lines and upgrading existing lines.
