Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 170209860 Event: 02/03/1994Employee Slightly Injured In Boiler Explosion
At approximately 11:00 a.m. on February 3, 1994, Employee #1, an Econo Lodge employee, was working in a room in which the motel's main water heater boiler was located when, without warning, the heater exploded. The explosion blew a hole in the adjacent wall, and fragments of the boiler injured Employee #1, but not seriously and not requiring hospitalization. When the water heater's pressure relief valve was removed and inspected, it was found to be clogged by what appeared to be heavy rust deposits, and therefore not in operating condition. The heater was also lacking a water level switch.
