Just got my CynLab catalog, and they list an "explosion-proof" refrigerator on pg 239

And for less than $7,000 !

blast resistant and explosion proof dont mean the same thing here. explosion proof means that the fridge isolates any electrical sparks so they dont cause explosions if flammable material is near by.

OK- I see now. So it isn't exactly bullet-proof, it just won't cause an explosion with sparks.

"intrinsincally safe" is what we called it when I was in the nuclear weapons business

Wow, not something you read everyday
I alway thought intrinsincally safe was were any one failure would not cause a hazardous situation and would be detected/alarm, but yeah "explosion-proof" is pretty ambiguos (sp?)

EDIT: should use google first! I was thinking inherantly safe! Passedpawn was right, proves once again that you don't mess with the guy with the nuclear weapons !

Bottle bombs aren't really a concern once they're in the fridge anyways

Just my thoughts, exactly ! For a mere $7K, you can have an explosion-proof fridge...

Better check my NON-explosion-proof one now for sparks...you never know !

Hey, it has merit still! IF you have bottlebombs go off in the fridge, they won't cause an electrical fire and burn your house down!

Why would a bottle bomb go off in the fridge?
