That's one of my employees. I did the same thing on smaller scale. That's what happen when you take off a clamp without closing a valve. You only do that once. ;)

That should teach me to not read the forum during lunch.  :(

Third degree burns can take quite awhile to heal.  Hopefully he/she is taking care of it and healing well.

It happened late last summer. He took off a week and was back.

Glad he is okay.  Anytime I need to remove a clamp I check the valves, then double check and make sure that the clamp I'm removing is the right one and that any valves associated are closed.  Had a momentary lapse once when removing a line from the CIP arm on a fermenter.  Forgot to close the valve on the CIP arm but did close the one on the line.  As soon as that I opened that clamp I got showered with Iodophor, which is fortunate.  From then on I always check and recheck.
