Isobutylene gas explosion

Published on 12/04/24 184 Views

A gas explosion occurred due to thermal expansion in a Y-shaped strainer made of iron cast, leading to its rupture. The released isobutylene led to a gas-cloud explosion, causing the company's bankruptcy.

Ask yourself and your crew:

  • How can something like this happen here (e.g. on our site)?
  • What safety measures (i.e. procedures, controls/barriers) do we have in place to mitigate the risk?
  • How do we know the risk controls/barriers are working?
  • What improvements or changes should we make to the procedures, controls/barriers, or the way we work?
