Beside this, what happens when a propane tank blows up?
When the explosion is the result of the tank itself exploding, what's happening is a type of boiling liquid expanding vapor explosion, or BLEVE. A BLEVE occurs when the pressure of the propane tank exceeds the pressure it can safely vent. Rising pressure can then cause the tank to rupture and burst.
Likewise, what happens if you dont purge a new propane tank? If not purged properly, in addition to the moisture from the air causing regulator freeze up, a propane container with moisture in it can rust from the inside out, and have problems filling. If the new container, tank or cylinder is not purged properly, you might not be able to smell a propane leak!
