Accident causes aluminum spill at Team Industries
No one was injured in an early morning accident Monday that spilled molten aluminum 2 inches deep at Team Industries' foundry in Detroit Lakes.
Crews chipped away almost three tons of hardened aluminum and used fork lifts to move it off the floor, according to operations manager Steve Joy.
A furnace was being cleaned when the cleaning apparatus struck a valve, dumping the aluminum on the floor. The aluminum covered an area ranging from 1,200 to 1,500 square feet.
