In Kazakhstan, almost all the explosions of cars on gas (84%) occurred because of the intervention in the original design. This was stated by Vladimir Bekker, Chairman of the Committee for emergency situations of the Ministry of internal Affairs of Kazakhstan, Zakon.kz
“The main reason for the dismantling of the excess pressure valve for maximum filling of the cylinders, that at increase in temperature leads to expansion of gas explosion and subsequent fire”, — said the Chairman of CoES.
Becker added that people change the original design to increase the filling volume.
“It is possible to fill the tanks to 85% must be free space. Because the gas temperature changes, expands. Negative the temperature outside is 20 degrees, in a Parking lot stopped, there +20. The tank needs to be free space, but our craftsmen manage to retrieve the safety valve in order to refill, up to 95%. And all this leads to tragic events,” the Chairman of the Committee for emergency situations.
