According to demopolistimes.com, the corrosion in the pipeline is the cause of the natural-gas explosion in Sweet Water, Alabama last December.
Specifically, the said explosion happened on December 03, 2011 at about 3:07 in the afternoon. Transco, the company that owns the pipeline, immediately closed down the system after the failure. However, it still took 90 minutes, more or less, for firefighters to subdue the blaze the explosion resulted.
As described in the report, the explosion was heard at more than 30 miles from the location of the incident. The resulting flames are said to have reached 100 feet above the air. And because of the blast, spokesperson for Transco, Chris Stockton, said that their company was forced to modify its control program for corrosion.
Although rust may not cause an explosion to non-gas or non-fuel-related properties, its occurrence can cause huge problems. Because of that, Rusterizer.com advises property owners to treat corrosion early on. Aside from preventing the worse damage on the item or the surface, early rust removal also avoids high-cost corrosion treatments.
However, with the many rust removal products now available, it's not easy for anybody to find the right rust remover. For both effective and safe treatment though, the site only recommends the use of a green solution. It believes that every property owner's corrosion spray must not pose threats to any person's health.
