Silver Eagle refinery explosion surveillance video footage

Industrial Accidents

The CSB (U.S. Chemical Safety Board) has released footage from a surveillance camera that has captured the explosion at the Silver Eagle refinery in Utah that happened recently. The video shows how big an explosion can happen in a manner of a fraction of a second. The fireball that is seen can be more than 100 feet across, but enough about me telling it, watch it yourself below. It is a reminder to all of us to never underestimate the hazards that are present in large scale hydrocarbon processing.
