Carbon Dioxide Tank Explosion
In June of 2013 a 1960's vintage Carbon Dioxide bulk storage tank exploded causing major damage to this structure. In addition parts of the CO2 tank were hurled 1/2 mile away damaging other buildings. If this had occurred during normal business hours there would have certainly been many casualties. The investigation on the cause continues.
This picture demonstrates the tremendous energy stored in a liquid carbon dioxide bulk storage tank.
