The explosion resulted in one death and one minor injury to a property company. 1t was initially found that it was caused by gas leakage, and the cause needs further investigation reminder small details omission may cause disaster gas is closely related to residents’ life, how to use it scientifically to eliminate hidden dangers according to Ms. Zhang of Zhengzhou China Resources Gas Co., Ltd., in a confined space, when the concentration of gas leaked in the air reaches 5% – 15%, an explosive gas mixture will be formed, which will explode in the presence of open fire or spark. Therefore, from a safety point of view, we must prevent gas leakage. To prevent gas leakage, the rubber hose should be replaced every two years, and when it is used up, do not forget to turn off the engine and turn off the gas valve “a lot of people try to save time and put out the fire after dinner without closing the valve.” Ms. Zhang said, as everyone knows, this small link has brought great security risks. Some users feel that the hose is not aging and can be used for several years a simple detection method is to wet the hose with washing powder, and then open the gas valve to see if there are bubbles overflowing – this is a simple way to check whether the hose leaks. 1n addition, a more important detail is that the windows of the kitchen should not be closed tightly in all seasons, regardless of wind and rain, leaving a gap of four or five centimeters. 1n this way, the air circulation in the kitchen can be increased. Even if the hose leaks and gas overflows, they will soon float out of the window and will not reach the detonation concentration this article is a reprint of 1nternet media, which only represents the author’s point of view and has nothing to do with this website. 1f the information column articles and comments violate your legal rights, please call to let us know and we will deal with them in time
