We landed a huge aluminum job in our shop, the first real aluminum production we're going to run. This led to our discussion on how to prevent a thermite reaction when switching back to our typical HR P&O runners. The obvious answer is to clean the scrap trays and empty the dust collector. What other recommendations do you have to reduce the chances of a thermite fire?
