Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 170764161Event: 03/26/1998Four Employees Overcome By Carbon Dioxide When Valve Fails
On March 26, 1998, Employees #1 through #4 were in the vicinity of a 400 lb carbon dioxide cylinder when the burst disk failed. They attempted to shut off the valve but were unsuccessful. Employee #1 lost consciousness and was rescued by two coworkers, who were wearing SCBA respirators but who did not have any air monitoring equipment. Employees #1 through #4 were taken to the hospital for observation and released within hours. The burst disk failed due to contact with Coca-Cola syrup, whose corrosive properties damaged its integrity and caused it to fail at less than its standard 300 lb rating.
