This air tank compressor exploded in April 2004 at a homeowner's garage in Alexandria, Minnesota. No one was injured when the tank failed. The condensation that forms in the tank must be drained regularly to help prevent the bottom of the tank from corroding. 

Since this compressor was in someone's home garage, it was not required to be inspected.
