Some common sense about using small oil tank trucks

- Jun 25, 2019-

Small oil tank truck, also known as mobile tanker, is the most commonly used commercial vehicle in the market at present. It is like a mobile gas station. This kind of vehicle is equipped with a computer-controlled tanker as the main feature. It has the characteristics of being on call, convenient and flexible at the same time.


1. Pre-use preparation

(1)Put the conductive pole under the ground and make it grounded. If the ground touched is dry, it can boil water, and then make the ground moist, so as to ensure the good integrity of the ground, and then check the ground chain to ensure that it has contact with the ground.

(2)When opening the control box door of the tanker, the handle inside each valve must be carefully checked to ensure that there is also contact with the ground.

(3)During the whole operation of the gearbox, it is necessary to inspect it at all times, keep it in the neutral position, and adjust it in time in case of any situation.


2. Post-use inspection

For small oil tank trucks, the inspection work after use one step can not be less:

(1)To see if the power control switch has been put back.

(2)The throttle controller, see if it has been reduced to the minimum.

(3) Look at all the handle positions to see if they are closed, and the door of the control box must also be closed.

(4) The pole must be retrieved in time, fixed in place, and the oil system should be controlled as well as possible at this time.


3. About Driving

When driving a oil tank truck, it may not matter if it's in normal temperature, but when it comes to rain, snow or haze, it has to pay much attention to it. After all, the greatest feature of this type of truck is that it will inject a lot of fuel. Once a problem occurs, it will easily lead to explosion and bring greater potential disaster.

(1) When encountering all kinds of snow and ice, we must use anti-skid chains to reduce the speed of the truck and avoid the sharp turning caused by rapid acceleration and braking as far as possible.

(2) If you encounter haze weather, as a driver, you must light the fog lamp when driving the oil tank truck. You must keep driving at a low speed. Especially you should pay attention to the signs of the road center and various taillights. You should park your car in a safe place at all times.


4. About maintenance

In fact, there is no big difference with other cars in maintenance, but remember that the steering wheel doesn't have to be hit to the bottom all the time, and not to step on the brakes to floor. Sometimes the car is vulnerable to damage due to such operation, including the wear and tear of the ball and connecting rod of the system will be greatly aggravated.


Finally, we need to remind drivers of small oil tank trucks that although they carry fuel, they are also a flammable and explosive liquid, so we must always bear in mind the mission and responsibility on our shoulders.
