Was telling my parents about this and Dad asked if it was concussion or flying debris that broke the windows?

Very good story of you work experience.

 

We have a "molten salt" pot where cast iron automotive parts are cleaned at a temp of 750* F.

 

If water is trapped in any of the blocks or heads, we have explosions too!

when I first started working there 21 yrs ago no 1 told me what not to do. so I cleaned out the coffee pot throwing the wet coffee grounds into a dusty old shoot. didn't think much of it till they opened that shoot dropping the coffee grounds into a ladle thy were tapping into. BOOM!!  5 guys were blown to the grown, while I ran in the other direction.

 I see you are melting down all the scrap I provide.

 

A while back someone sent a car that was stuffed with junk - including a full propane tank- to a local scrap yard. When it went through the shredder there was a huge explosion that damaged the shredder and blew the glass out of the operators station. That yard no longer takes stuffed cars.

 

Good luck getting that stain out of your shorts. Gasoline and a match works pretty good.

Propane tanks are the worst. It takes a bit more time to melt through there shell, then man the fire works are the best sort of speak.
