Paging Charles Darwin. facebook.com/DoILookLikeIGiveAFunk.. Just going to clear this up for everyone; those are not gases for welding, they are pure oxygen and acetylene for cutting torches. The danger isn't that they wi lol stupidity

Just going to clear this up for everyone; those are not gases for welding, they are pure oxygen and acetylene for cutting torches. The danger isn't that they will penetrate or overheat the tanks, but that there could be a gas leak which would ignite the tank and make it explode or go shooting across the shop.
References: I work with the stuff.

Sometimes. I've heard of instances where they shot through the walls of buildings.

I think they had an episode on Mythbusters where they did that.

tbh if the acetylene caught off one of the sparks the shop would go up like hiroshima... part of me wants to see that happen

I'm pretty sure those containers can withstand a few sparks.

when people weld they use argon gas to make the flow of electricity better. argon will not explode. your picture is boner sauce

Heating a gas will cause expansion, increasing the pressure inside the tank. It doesn't matter if it's flammable or not. The tank could still fail.

I understand what you're saying. However, I would have moved the tanks in case of some random structural flaw, causing the tanks to be weaker than they should be.

but think of how many thumbs he's get if he had a video of that tanks actually blowing up. its a case of getting thumbs vs. actually having thumbs.

even the cords on those tanks are pretty durable if they could be pierced by a few sparks no one would use torch welding they rarely even go thru your clothes. I love how ppl that know nothing about welding think that is so dangerous

You can hold your hand out under sparks. It stings like a bitch, but isn't much of a fire hazard. It'll set paper on fire, but it can't generate enough heat to really be a danger.

Not much danger. The containers will not overheat though all the metal.
