Re: NOS explosion, NOT MINE!
I seen that before. I think it was posted in the GM section a year or two ago.
There is something BS about it. Something is not being told.
A bottle heater is regulated by a thermostat and fails safe.
Also nitrous is not flamable or explosive by it's self.
All nitrous/CO2 bottles have a saftey valve just in case for what ever reason the bottle pressure was to get too high.
Even if all was to fail I can not see how a bottle ruptureing could do all the damage shown there.
I have seen a full bottle of oxygen get the valve knocked off. It was loud and intense for a second but not atom bomb like shown there.
So that is why I believe there is more to this story then what is being told.
