BLEVE – Response and Prevention
The video concentrates on addressing critical safety issues affecting emergency responders by providing answers to common questions regarding accidents involving fire impingement of pressure liquefied gas tanks and BLEVEs. Typical questions addressed include: What is a BLEVE and its hazards? What is a safe distance for emergency responders when a fire is close to a pressure tank? How much water is required to keep a tank cool? Does there have to be a fire for a BLEVE to occur? The video sequences include 3-D animation and film footage of complete BLEVE scenarios, followed by more detailed examination of specific parameters using animated graphics.
