Abstract

Pressure vessels store substances under pressure
higher than atmospheric conditions and are found all over the
place. They are used in homes and hospitals for hot water
storage, in many different factories and plants, and in mining
and oil refineries. Pressure vessels store large amounts of
energy; the higher the operating pressure and the bigger the
vessel, the more the energy released in the event of a rupture
and consequently the higher the extent of damage or disaster or
the danger it poses, hence there should be no complacency
about the risks. Unfortunately, pressure vessels accidents
happen much more than they should. This paper presents
different accounts of pressure vessels accidents, hazard
awareness and precautionary measures that could save lives
