Nothing unusual leaked from furnace at Eramet

From staff reports


No unusual materials were released during a furnace leak Friday morning at the Eramet plant on Ohio 7, a company spokesman said.

Marietta firefighters were on standby at the scene at the request of the Warren Volunteer Fire Department after smoke was reported. First responders at the plant handled the situation, said Ethan Frank-Collins, director of human resources with Eramet. There were no injuries.

The substance leaking from the furnace was molten silicomanganese, a material produced at the plant, Frank-Collins said. It would have exited the furnace at another point anyway, he said.

“Instead of coming out of a normal hole where we remove the metal, it came out of a different hole it made itself, a small hole,” Frank-Collins said.

While leaks are not a common occurrence, plant personnel are trained to deal with them, Frank-Collins said.

It may have been steam, not smoke, that was seen, Frank-Collins said.
