AFO 1002/1921.—Soda Water Machines—Protection.

(E.-in-C./N.L. 4210/21.— 27.4.1921.)

The bursting of the container of a soda water machine belonging to the canteen of one of H.M. Ships, owing to defective brazing of the copper container, resulted in serious damage to the sight of one of the operators.

2. To avoid accidents from similar causes, careful examination of the pressure parts and fittings should be made periodically, and where practicable, suitable protection should be fitted over the pressure parts of the machines purchased for the use of Officers’ messes and canteens.

3. The necessary work is to be carried out by the ship’s staff.

[Well well - who'd a thought it !]
