  • Cylinder explosion on truck..

    Hi there,

    I'm in the process of building a new mobile welding truck and I was doing some googling to get some ideas for a caddy to carry 4-5 E Size Cylinders..

    Well.. I came across a good report on what can happen if a cylinder explodes on a truck.. Its a good read with lots of photos..

    Any if anyone has any good ideas on a caddy I'd like to hear them!

    Oops.

      Only a couple of Aussies would come up with a scheme like they did to salvage a cylinder. We're way to smart to do something like that on this side of the pond.

          I thought all '78 chevy trucks look like that.

          Well at least mine did.

            I must have had the same model as you did.

              Unfortunately, IT WAS ON THIS SIDE OF THE POND. The Newspaper photo and story caption shows this happened in the US. To many American vehicles in the pictures and it happened on I-10. There were no Aussies involved, just a couple of morons who lived to blow themselves up another day if given the chance.

                  No, more likely a couple of "good ol boys" listening to dueling banjo's.

                      The one with the O2 jug certainly isnt typical, they had tyo go a long way to screw that up that bad.

                        This is the most humorous thread I've seen in a long time.

                        I'm glad to see there still exists a sense of humor in MillerLand.

                        I worked a bit on the U.S./Mexico Border Fence Project in Lukeville this year and I can only hope the fence keeps out the Aussies as well as the "others".

                          Anyone know where and when the O2 bottle incident took place? I could swear that intersection is the Dauphin Island Parkway interchange on I-10 in Mobile, AL. Railroad tracks to the right in the overheard shot (CSX), warehouses beyond (Brookley Industrial Complex), and the tag on the remains of the pickup looks like it has a "2A" prefix, which is Mobile County. I never heard about this incident if it indeed happened here (I'm local). It DOES look like something some of us good-ol-boys would do!

                            I've been around oxygen many years: in the USN and in later years I operated a Linde Unox 150 cryo plant. I know what this will do and won't do.

                            All of us know (or should know) to keep hydrocarbons away from ANY O2 equipment.
