Vacuum induced collapse

Improper venting can lead to implosion because of the vacuum created inside the tank.  A video of a controlled tank implosion is here.

  1. That's never a good thing.......my neighbor used to drive milk tankers to the dairy. The tanks were glass lined, like a thermos. If you didn't open the vent before you opened the dump valve it would break the glass liner and ruin the milk, and trailer.
