Avoiding Boiler Disasters and Explosions is a Big Deal
At Arizona Boiler Inspectors we prioritize safety and help you avoid disasters.
The explosion at Shearer’s Foods serves as a stark reminder of the potential dangers associated with boilers and the need for proper inspection and maintenance. The explosion, which occurred on February 22, 2022, was caused by a rented boiler fueled by natural gas, and resulted in devastating consequences for the food processing plant.
The investigation into the Shearer Foods explosion suggests that the leased boiler was old and rusted, and was installed in a hallway rather than in an enclosed boiler room. Gas leaks had also occurred prior to the explosion, with factory workers having smelled the gas. The force of the first explosion was so powerful that it blew out windows and doors, while the second blast blew latched doors off their hinges, and blew employees out of the exterior doors. It also started a large section of the factory on fire. Many people were injured and required medical attention from neurologists and inner ear specialists.
