Is really disheartening when I read or hear news of gas cylinder explosion in various part of the country which has actually generated some sort of controversy over whether using a phone near cylinder can cause an explosion or not. My answer to this is YES AND NO it depends on how the disaster happened. HOW IS THIS SO? No,because to create a vapor or gas explosion in the air you need an explosive gas mixture and hot source to ignite it(a spark or flame). Meanwhile cell phones do not make sparks or flames. YES, because the content of the cylinder (gas) might have leaked in the kitchen and phone can ignite gas fumes coming from the leakage and cause a disaster. Although,expensive gas mixture can accumulate in enclosed spaces, and typically do so only when no one is around. This is because commercial sources of explosive gases have nauseating odors when in a dangerous concentrations. How do we prevent this from happening. First and foremost,don’t keep your cylinder inside the kitchen. All cylinders should be kept outside and channeled inside using a pipe. Secondly, never be in a hurry to light a gas cooker,always try and ventilate the kitchen to allow stuffy air out of the kitchen. Also,always inspect cylinder,hose and burner heads for leakages. Rusty cylinders should be replaced. Cylinders whose paint have faded should be repainted to prevent or reduce leakages. Cylinders that have been used for ten years should be replaced. 📷 @nene_onivehu
