DO UGLASS (Mont.) — An investigation is under way to determine what caus ed a Wednesday morning fire at a metal manufacturing plant on County Line R oad just outside Boyertown.
Emergency responders were dispatched to Cab ot Inc. for a blaze that broke out in a chemical dust collector shortly bef ore 10:30 a.m.
Tim Knapp, manager of safety, health and environment for Cabot, said crews had the fire controlled and out within five minutes afte r arriving to the scene, giving an all-clear at around 11 a.m. span>
The dust collector where the fire began contained tantalum, a chemical used in the company’s metal manufacturing process, he said.
Althoug h it was initially thought dust had escaped the plant during the fire, Knap p said it was only smoke, not chemicals that were released into the air.
At our lab, we analyze tobacco and tobacco smoke for a wide array of chemical constituents, largely for regulatory compliance to variou s governments around the globe (although we also do testing for government agencies and universities as well). Many of our customers are still l ooking for the chemical-free smoke mentioned above. Shall I refer the m to Cabot Inc.??
