HOLCROFT DIVISION SECURES $1.5 MILLION FORD CONTRACT FOR ADVANCED ALUMINUM-BRAZING SYSTEM

 LIVONIA, Mich., March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The Holcroft division of Thermo Process Systems Inc. (AMEX: TPI) has received an order from Ford Motor Company for a $1.5 million system to be used for the continuous aluminum brazing of radiators.
 The specialized furnace technology required to braze, or fuse, aluminum has been licensed to Holcroft through an exclusive arrangement with a British firm, Camlaw Ltd. New environmental regulations banning the use of ozone-depleting chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) are causing manufacturers of air conditioners, refrigeration equipment, and other cooling systems to switch from copper parts to aluminum in order to be compatible with newly developed refrigerants that are more environmentally sound. In this application, the use of lightweight aluminum for the construction of vehicle components was also a key factor.
 "This system represents the first order we have received under our new agreement with Camlaw," said Thomas P. Plunkett, president and chief executive officer of Thermo Process Systems. "We expect this type of equipment to address a rapidly growing domestic market with the mandated phase-out of CFC use in the United States by 1995."
 The equipment is scheduled for delivery by the end of 1993 for installation in one of Ford's Climate Control Division plants.
 Thermo Process Systems designs, manufactures, and sells advanced custom-engineered thermal-processing systems for the automated heat treating of metal parts and the treatment of toxic wastes. The company also provides services for the remediation of petroleum-laden soils, in addition to a comprehensive range of metallurgical processes. Thermo Process Systems is a public subsidiary of Thermo Electron Corporation.
