Courtesy of J. M. Jarnagin. One evening, just about five minutes after a newly-trained operator switched the dryer from the heating to the cooling cycle, the dryer exploded. The 30-inch (76 cm) diameter air dryer top head suddenly tore from the shell.

The backup plan to cool by auto refrigeration as vapor escaped via the open relief valve was underway. As planned, a flow of steam was routed to the stack in hopes of safely dispersing the cold gases. However, about 12 hours later, a small tank seam leak developed. Steam hoses were directed near the leak to heat and disperse the vapor as the tank was emptied as sales conditions allowed. The large atmospheric liquid ethylene tank could not be emptied quickly, for there were no other tanks available to store to liquid ethylene.
