Can Sealed Caskets Explode?


It is also true that sealed casket can explode from gases caused by anerobic bacteria?

With regard to exploding caskets: this is something that would not happen with modern casket design. Most metal Protective caskets are designed today with a "protective gasket." This gasket allows air (or gas) to escape from the casket but does not allow air or the elements to enter the casket. If the casket were "sealed" in such away as to not allow gases to escape, the casket might show signs of internal gas pressure, but the major manufacturers in the US no longer build such caskets for generally distribution. - Steve Moeller
