How to prevent self-ignition of fuel tank trucks in summer
Fuel tank truck is a special transportation tool for loading oil products. Because one of the characteristics of oil products is that they can ignite at high temperature, the most promising fuel tank truck will be made of the best material, ensure that the oil products inside can avoid the adverse effects of external factors. So how can fuel tank truck prevent self-ignition in hot summer?
Every part and structure of the tanker is specially designed and tested to ensure safety. However, if the tanker is refitted without authorization in the course of use, it may cause damage to the oil-way and circuit in the tanker. For example, the use of refitted lines and equipment in power and capacitance do not match, will lead to self-ignition.
Because the temperature is too high in summer, especially when exposed to the sun at noon, the ground temperature can even reach more than fifty degrees Celsius, in this case, if the tanker is loaded with oil products, the driver must have a comprehensive inspection before driving the tanker. Make sure that there are no abnormal phenomena in the electrical appliances and wiring of the tanker and the oil supply system. In addition, fire extinguishers should be equipped with safety monitoring.
If the tanker is found to have a burnt odor or even smoke, it is usually a sign of self-ignition. At this point, the driver should immediately pull up the hand brake and turn off the power supply in order to prevent further self-ignition of the tanker. Use fire extinguishers to cool the tank and parts that have started burning. At the same time, do not open the front cover of the tanker in this case to avoid air entering to produce combustion-supporting.
In order to prevent self-ignition in summer, it is necessary to protect oil tank trucks because of the high temperature in summer. In addition to purchasing from the distributor, who has had a reputation for many years. We also need to do a thorough inspection before each use. And don't refit the circuit and oil system of the tanker without authorization. If the precursor of self-ignition is found, a quick and rational response must be made.
