As the gas is escaping continuously, the proportion of gas to air increases, and so does the pressure. When the gas/air ratio reaches a certain level, a single spark can be ignited; even an electrostatic spark can be ignited. As it is heated, the gas expands and causes the pressure to reach unbearable levels. Then, all windows in the room will blow up, and the explosion will seriously injure people and property. The ultimate cause of such accidents may be defective pipelines and gas regulators. Or these items may not be malfunctioning at first but have become so due to insufficient maintenance. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
