MAXI-LIFT Pro Tips – Elevator Explosions! Part 2

Explosions are one of the most significant dangers in the Feed & Grain industry, but they don’t always take the form you expect. Catastrophic explosions make the news, but smaller and more contained explosions can also happen. These must be taken seriously by any operator.

Dean Wedekind and Bo Fisher return with Part 2 of their discussion on elevator explosions. In today’s video, Dean recalls a firsthand inspection of an elevator that had experienced a contained explosion which deformed the metal trunking along the leg of the elevator. They discuss what may have caused the explosion, what the impact of the explosion could be, and the risks of continuing to operate with steel buckets and a damaged trunk.
