Changes Urged Amid Probe of Fatal Pennsylvania Gas Explosion


Federal officials last year searched a gas explosion leveling a Pennsylvania house, killed a service officer and wounded two other workers, urging them to make changes to prevent the wrong installation of a gas distribution system component.

The National Transportation Ministry could still determine the cause of the July 2017 explosion in the Manor Township near Millersville, which killed a UGI Utilities employee.

However, the safety board said on Monday that researchers had determined that PermaLock mechanical guidance equipment in the home gas distribution system was installed incorrectly.

For this reason, the Pipeline and Dangerous Material Safety Administration wants the state to work with pipeline regulators to ensure that such installations are installed correctly. He also wants Honeywell and other companies to update their assembly instructions.
