Just as he inserted the oil pipe into the car, the flame instantly ejected from the fuel tank.The man was so scared that he threw down the pipeline and evacuated. The flame spread quickly around the car and engulfed it.
Experts said that because gasoline is a volatile substance, it is impossible for gasoline to be completely sealed in gas stations, which is easy to volatilize and form a mixture of oil and gas. Therefore, gas stations are flammable and explosive places, and the switches, lamps and other items used in gas stations should be explosion-proof.
When people use mobile phones to make calls, the intensity of radio waves emitted by mobile phones is higher than that in standby mode,The antenna of the mobile phone will produce RF current with the radio wave (RF electromagnetic radiation) emitted by the mobile phone. When the RF current circulates between the metal conductors, it is easy to produce RF sparks in case of corrosion or poor contact.Don't underestimate the RF spark, it may ignite the mixture of oil and air.
It's not just making calls, but high-intensity mobile signals can also threaten the safety of gas stations,That's why many gas stations don't support mobile paymentAnd the reason to pay in cash or by credit card.
