About kerosene leak accident from polycontainer for kerosene transportation

Last update date January 22, 2019


While we put transportation container (kerosene kan, 20 liters) for kerosene in the automatic car boot in 2006 and carried kerosene, accident that kerosene began to leak from storing entrance occurred.

This container was thing which passed container performance test by the Fire Services Act, but kerosene has begun to leak without being sealed well by malfunction of process of manufacture because we lacked height of convex screw part.
