not a nice way to go. It must of had a fault in it as you would think it would swell and he was washing it out so thats strange as you would think if its inclosed it will blow high pressure threw one post and drain threw the other

do they not fill kegs in a cage over here in a similiar way to how they have to inflate truck tyres in a cage to prevent this happeneing. hope the bloke pulls through okay though.

Shows why you should only use a keg complying with Australian Standards and local Workcover requirements for pressure vessels.

This ensures that the keg has all sorts of pressure tests and burst disks that make sure that any overpressure is released in a safe and controlled manner.
dunno that they worry much about australian standards and workcover in the states!

No true, but we should !

OTOH, these are international standards that have an equivalent standard in each country ...... except for China that is.
