Summer heat!!!!

So I'm from central oklahoma and it has been very hot all ready this year for summer for instance there has already been several days of over 100 degree weather like today that was 102 and tomorrow that is going to be 101 then the lowest of the week is supposed to be like 95 I think along with those high temps there is the heat index which is always higher. But I was just gunna see if this is on oklahoma trend or if the rest of your areas are experiencing abnormally high temps.

Sulfuric Acid reacts violently with water, the plant I work for was suppose to do a routine air flush on a plant wide piping system so we could perform repairs. Unfortunately, someone in the maintenance department flushed a very expensive BRAND NEW stainless steel system with water. My coworker and I had to go up in man lifts and assess just how much damage had been done, they flushed the piping with water overnight and pretty much fried most of the gaskets, plus add a good 10-15 mils on all the pipe that had not been converted to stainless yet. Someone's head probably rolled for that mistake...

For our own safety we were required to wear full acid gear, in the event of a leak. If you get Sulfuric on your skin and wash it off the thermal reaction is well of 500 degrees, the exact temperature depends on the concentration of the acid your exposed to.
