Just goes to show you the power of explosions and dangers of driving that you don't think about.

Great share!

the take away from this video should be cylinder safety for all of us that have them sitting around the house or garage. There are numerous shots of cylinders exploding, flying around and wreaking havoc on this video to ignore. If you have them around, ensure they are properly stored and secured. If not chained, they should be laying down so they can't tip over. If they do, and the valve is broken... instant missle!

And it was proven on Mythbusters that if a valve is knocked off it will turn missile and blow through cinder block wall. Here at the nuc plant we are required to tie them off two levels tightly. And when not in active use to remove the regulator and replace the cap. Safety is a paramount objective here in the regulated world of Nuc power, so we are always on the lookout for these types of things.

Hey Cave... are those tied off with nylon straps or chain? Chain is the only good meathod because the straps can burn off.

We use mostly chain but sometimes use a cotton/wool strap that also has kevlar???? supposed to withstand some fire???? mostly though chained
