It seemed like an over pressure explosion rather than an ignition source explosion??

Very strange ??

Hi :)

Maybe he used a blowlamp to increase the pressure ?

All the best Brett :)

More like it was the wrong tank for the wrong gas.

LPG (propane) pressure peaks at about 150 psi most of the time and is usually about 100psi ( I have monitored mine using a gauge) and the safety on the bottle vents at 300+ psi (the safety valve says 27 bar)

Where as natural gas (Methane) has a MUCH higher pressure (Methane liquifies at over nitrous pressure) so natural gas tanks usually just store compressed gas.

Something odd about ANY tank rupture as they all should have safety valves.

And what was he trying to do near the door? And what was the spark when he tried to pull the hose?

Something not right about this video.

Lets not start on blow lamps again as I use mine to run my lawn mower.
