Sometimes simpler is better. Never heard of one of these exploding.

An acquaintance of a friend of a roommate's brother swore he watched someone break the pump and then stab themselves in the hand trying to fix it.

/I guess it was pretty serious

But, is it worse than arsenic?

Well, depends on what you mean by "exploding"... I was finishing a rather tiring cater-out and went to disconnect the keg of Nut Brown we'd brought. Without releasing pressure first. I ended up jumping on a hand grenade of beer. All I could do was dive on top of the keg. it didn't help that we were doing this even in a rather fancy place, and it was just covering the walls. Not a good day to be wearing a nice clean dress shirt, for sure. I looked like I'd taken a face dive in a mud puddle...

So while it didn't "explode" in the sense that there was shrapnel spread across the room, I can see how even a basic tap can have potential danger once it's under pressure.

As a semi-pro keg man it always boggled my mind that people couldn't figure out how to operate one a tap.

/Keg man: great job at a party
//Pump man: better jerb

Hey, I'm available to help if required. I have 44 years experience with all kinds of kegs plus, I drive the dry bus now so you need not worry about that aspect. And if I get to play the music, I'll pay you $20 to beertend.

I don't know how this "Chopeira Elétrica" (electric beer cooler?) exploded.

Apparently he rented it from Imigração Chopp Express a part? of the brewery Cervejaria Imigração all located in Campo Bom, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil where he lived.

It was another hit job by the notorious underworld syndicate. INTERPOL has been trying to get to the bottom of SUDS for a long time.

No shiat it's more dangerous.  The main ingredient is dihydrogen monoxide, the single most dangerous compound known to man.

I get rid of as much of it as I can but they keep restocking the shelves.

I could find no information. The brewery doesn't seem to sell mini kegs of beer
https://www.cervejaimigracao.com.br/

The way things seem to work in Brazil is you rent a home Chopeira from a brewery associated "Express" company (distributor) that comes full of draft beer. I'm guessing maybe 10 liters but I could find no information on capacity or what holds the beer inside this cooling dispenser. (metal? plastic?)
