Compressed Nitrous Oxide gas and Methanol/Nitromethane fuel mixes aren't the same thing. Nitrous Oxide is a booster gas used in gas (petrol) cars. It's the same gas that's used to put people to sleep at the dentist and as the propellent in whipped cream, and is also known as "laughing gas". Not the same thing as Nitromethane.

Any failure of a high-pressure tank will result in massive damage. Diving tanks pose similar risks even though they only contain air.

Unless you know someone who uses Nitrous Oxide boost in their R/C aircraft then this topic has zero to do with our hobby.

Not enough info in the story...
The story lacks any details and just says a bottle failed? It didn't say it was being heated and if so how? Didn't say if it was steel, Aluminum or composite?

The one thing that stands out is that unless defeated the bottle would have had a 2500 or 3000 PSI burst disk on the head per DOT regs?

So in a nutshell anyone know anything more about this?

I also was asking myself why the burst disk dont do his job and allow the pressure to relief before destruction......... Maybe they tampered!

The news say that the guy was heating the bottle and its look like this can weaken the bottle to the point of destruction.....

that is a pile of bullsh-t. Pressure explosion would have puffed up the whole trailer, like an unhappy lipo battery. that more looks like something was launched out the side of the trailer, then somebody was messing with the valve and it came off launching the cylinder out the side like a rocket, no explosion there.

over exaggeration by nit witted media people.
