- In Steel Research Institute has developed a new technology of explosion-proof containers
The specialists of "Institute of Steel" located under the "Concern" Tractor plants ", developed an effective technology to produce gas cylinders, shatter even in the outbreak of fire, and when hit by bullets, shrapnel and large pieces of concrete. Explosive cylinders filled with super-light open-cell vehicle, which prevents detonation and explosion of gas in the tank, thus reducing the volume of the container is not more than 3-5%. Additional equipment cylinders special polymer coating and venting safety valve to protect the hull from the effects of high temperatures and shock loads. Extensive testing of gas containers manufactured with the new technology, confirm the absolute explosion safety and reliability of the structures of the products, the developers. manufacturing explosion-proof containers does not require a profound restructuring of production lines and three times less expensive compared to foreign counterparts.
During the first weeks of 2013 in Russia was 8 explosions of gas cylinders. For comparison, according to "RIA Novosti", in 2012, Russia in homes recorded a total of 11 such cases. However, a few years ago, Russian scientists developed explosion-proof bottles and cans. It turns out that the cylinders have a safe, and people continue to die … Why not unique technologies find their application, one can only wonder. 1 January in the village of Education Saratov region suffered a major fire in the explosion of a gas cylinder. Six people injured, including two children. January 8 in Novokuznetsk in the early morning in the nine-house gas cylinder exploded. The fire killed 2 people, eight people were hospitalized. 8 apartments in need of major repairs, more than 40 apartments damaged, people were left homeless. On this day in Chechnya was an explosion of household gas, 1 hurt people. House of 120 square meters. m partially destroyed. January 9 in St. Petersburg because of the explosion of the gas cylinder is almost completely burned down the building auto-service. January 14 in Sochi at 3 am for the same reason private house on fire. A few hours later and there was a state of emergency in a newly built house in Krasnoyarsk. January 15, in the Chuvash Republic in the morning there was a gas explosion. 2 people died, left homeless more than forty people. On the same day in a private nursery Ramenkoe district of Moscow region suffered a major fire in the explosion of gas cylinders. When half an hour later firefighters arrived at the scene, there was nothing to put out. According to statistics in Russia because of the explosion of domestic gas cylinders per year are killed or maimed about 200-300 people. The consequences of such an explosion comparable to the detonation of 122 millimeter artillery shell. Metal fragments fly tens of meters, creating a zone of continuous defeat. The most common causes of the explosion are overfilling and overheating of the cylinder.
