Wrong Maintenance Affects The Normal Use Of Tank Trucks

Myth 1: The oil in the tanker is more than essential.

The oil in the crankcase of the tanker cannot be added more or less. The excessive oil will increase the rotational resistance of the crank-link mechanism and increase the oil splashed onto the cylinder wall. Excessive oil can cause carbon deposits in the combustion chamber to increase, and the tanker engine power is reduced, which can affect emissions. When checking or adding oil, the driver should add according to the scale on the oil scale. The oil level should not exceed the upper limit of the scale. The minimum can not be lower than the scale. The oil level is usually added to the middle of the two scales. More appropriate.

Myth 2: Tire pressure can not be low

Some drivers like to charge the tires at a high level, which is considered to be both overloaded and fuel efficient. This is not true. If the pressure of the tanker tire is too high, the grounding surface of the tire will be reduced, and the tread wear will be aggravated, which will reduce the braking effect during braking, which will affect the driving safety. It is also not good for the tanker's tire pressure to be too low. In addition to affecting the safety and braking effect of the tank truck, the pressure of the tanker will also accelerate the wear of the shoulder and increase the fuel consumption of the vehicle. When the driver uses the air pump to inflate himself, he should inflate according to the air pressure specified by the manufacturer. The tire pressure label is usually located on the body or the fuel tank cap.

Myth 3: Wheel screws are tight and not loose

The bolts of various parts of the tanker have corresponding tightening torques according to the diameter, pitch and use. If the specified torque is not reached, the bolt will loosen and the bolt will be stretched beyond the tightening torque. Before tightening the components of the tanker, it is necessary to grasp the tightening torque of each bolt, such as wheel bolts. Generally, the tightening torque of the tank bolts of the tanker is between 100-130 N·m.

Myth 4: Attachment belt is tight and not loose

Some drivers believe that increasing the tension of the accessory belt can improve the cooling effect of the tanker compressor and the power generation of the generator, so the belt tightness is improved steadily, and this is wrong. The accessory belt should maintain proper tension, because too tight a belt will overload the bearing, shorten the service life of the component, and cause the belt of the tanker to break, which will eventually affect the normal use of the tanker.
