Crankcase Explosion Safety Revisited
At the height of gas transmission pipeline expansion in the United States, much was written on crankcase explosions and available protection for reciprocating machinery. With changes in personnel and maintenance practices at many operating companies, the risk of crankcase explosion incidents may be increasing. In order to control the risk of crankcase explosions, it is important for operation and maintenance personnel to understand the phenomenon, the crankcase explosion protection devices that are available and their uses and limitations. This paper reviews the background, history and development of crankcase explosion relief devices, provides current application criteria and recommends that users audit all operating equipment for proper usage of these important protection devices.
