What is Fuel Tanker truck? Introduction of Fuel Tanker truck from China


Fuel Tanker truck

Fuel Tank trucks are also called mobile fuel trucks, computerized tax-controlled fuel trucks, fuel tank trucks, fuel trucks, fuel trucks, oil trucks, petroleum trucks, and edible oil trucks. They are mainly used as petroleum derivatives (gasoline, diesel). , Crude oil, lubricating oil and coal tar) transportation and storage. According to different purposes and use environments, there are multiple oil refueling or oil transportation functions, such as oil absorption, pumping, and multiple oil dispensing and distributing functions.

Tank material:

carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum alloy, pure aluminum tank, rubber lining, rotomolding, plastic tank, glass steel tank can also be used as needed.

Tank type:

square, oval, round

Oil pumps: self-priming pumps, gear pumps, chemical pumps, stainless steel pumps, centrifugal pumps, heavy oil pumps. Fuel meter: single-count, double-count, tax-controlled fuel dispenser.

Tank truck breathing valve:

In order to ensure that the tank pressure is basically the same as the atmospheric pressure while the fuel truck is working, a breathing valve is installed on the large cover of the tank. When the oil in the tank expands due to heat or when the tank is refueled with an oil pump, the oil level in the tank rises. The pressure increases. When the pressure in the tank is higher than the external pressure of 8KPA, the upper valve plate of the breathing valve opens; when the oil is discharged from the oil pump or the oil is cold contracted, the oil level drops and the pressure decreases. When the pressure in the tank is lower than the outside pressure At 3KPA, the lower valve plate of the breathing valve opens.


It can be divided into separate warehouses, and can be divided into different oil products, chemicals, and food. The design can realize the functions of pumping in and out of the meter, pumping in and out of the meter, self-flowing through the meter, and not metering.

Tank truck tank structure

The tank truck is composed of a special vehicle chassis and an upper part. The upper part is composed of a tank body, a power take-off, a transmission shaft, a gear oil pump, a pipe network system and other components. The pipe network system is composed of oil pump, three-way four-position ball valve, two-way ball valve, filter screen and pipeline.

The structure of the oil tank is an elliptical cylindrical or trapezoidal cylindrical body, made of high-quality steel plate. The whole tank body is divided into single or multiple warehouses. The inside of the tank can be divided into compartments. There are through holes at the lower end of the middle partition. Multiple bins, the bins can be divided into compartments, the lower end of the intermediate partition has a through hole, and a sub-bin reinforced wave partition is welded in the middle of each bin to reduce the impact of the oil in the tank and improve the rigidity of the tank when the car is sucked.

Car fire cover

Automobile fire dome (also known as motor vehicle exhaust spark extinguisher, automobile exhaust pipe fire dome, spark extinguisher, spark extinguisher, fire dome, fire cap, automobile fire dome, automobile flame arrester, automobile fire cap, fire cap) It is a safety fire prevention and fire retarding device that is installed behind the exhaust pipe of a motor vehicle to allow the exhaust flow to pass through and prevent flames and sparks in the exhaust flow from spraying out. It is an important safety and fire protection product that guarantees the national key fire protection units and all transportation vehicles must be equipped in flammable and explosive areas. It is suitable for fire-prohibited areas such as key flammable and explosive fire prevention units and warehouses, cargo yards, oil fields, forest areas, coal mines, petrochemical liquefied gas plants, paper mills, airports, etc. The installation of this product is very convenient and fast. You only need to put the open end with the clamping band of the product with matching caliber on the exhaust pipe of the corresponding motor vehicle, and then tighten the nuts on both sides of the clamping band.

User’s Guide for Oil Tanker Trucks

1. In order to ensure the cleanliness of the tanker, the tank and the oil delivery system should be cleaned regularly, and the internal and external joints of the two ends of the oil pipeline should be frequently coated with lubricating oil. Clean the tubing in time after each work to ensure that the tubing is clean!

2. The use and maintenance of the oil pump of the tanker truck shall be carried out in strict accordance with its operation and maintenance instructions!
3. Before refueling operation, you must use the electric pole to insert into the wet ground, the grounding tape of the tanker should be grounded, and the static electricity should be kept well during the operation!
4. The safety valve and filter net of oil tanker should be checked and cleaned frequently!
5. Oil tanks and piping systems should be cleaned regularly. The oil tanker regularly checks whether the joints of the pipeline system are well connected and the seal is reliable!
6. Tank trucks should install electrostatic belts in accordance with the specifications. When static electricity encounters the extremely high concentration of combustible gas remaining in the car, an explosion occurs. The electrostatic belts frequently rub against the car body, etc., and can be effectively removed from the space where static electricity is easily generated. Static electricity hazards to ensure that the body is not harmed.

Installation method:

It can be installed on the metal part of the chassis! After a period of time, after the bottom part is worn out, you can put down some of the rubber band on it!

7. Tank trucks should be equipped with special fire extinguishers, and tow train chains and electric poles should be installed. When driving, the towline chain should touch the ground; when refueling or draining, the electric pole must be inserted into the damp ground.

8. The oil tank filling hole should be tightly sealed, the oil drain valve and drain pipe should be free of leakage, the oil tank vent hole should be unblocked, the oil pump inlet filter should be cleaned frequently, and the two ends of the joint cover should be installed immediately after the oil delivery hose is used up. No dirt should enter.

9. The vaporizer and exhaust pipe of the internal combustion engine must not have flashback. The exhaust pipe should be installed in front of the vehicle.

10. Workers on tank trucks are not allowed to wear shoes with nails. Smoking is strictly prohibited near oil tanks, and fire is strictly prohibited.

11. When parking, keep it away from fire sources, and choose a shaded place to park in hot seasons. During thunderstorms, do not park under big trees or high-voltage lines. When parked in the middle of driving, a special person should take care of it.

12. During the maintenance process, if the operator needs to enter the oil tank, it is strictly forbidden to carry fire, and must have reliable safety protection measures, and special personnel must be supervised outside the tank.

13. All electrical devices on the car must be well insulated, and sparks are strictly prohibited. Car working lighting should be safety lights below 36V.

14. When the oil tank sedimentation tank is frozen, it is strictly forbidden to use fire. You can melt it with hot water or steam, or drive the car into the warm room to thaw.

15. When performing maintenance and overhaul under the vehicle, the internal combustion engine should be turned off, the hand brake should be tightened, and the wheels should be tightened.

16. When a vehicle needs to be tested after being repaired, it should be driven by a qualified person. No persons or objects are allowed on the vehicle. When the vehicle needs to be tested on the road, the test license issued by the traffic management department should be displayed.

17. When parking on a ramp, reverse gear should be used for downhill parking, first gear should be used for uphill parking, and a triangular wooden wedge should be used to plug the tires.

Precautions for fire protection of tank trucks

1. Do not pour gasoline into the carburetor port when the engine is running or when the car is cranking. Fill the carburetor with gasoline to increase the concentration of the mixed gas in the cylinder. Although this is helpful for starting when the oil does not enter the cylinder, it will not help for other reasons, and it may also cause reversal. Fire, burn people and burn down vehicles and other hazards.

2. When maintaining the gasoline filter, it is not recommended to use gasoline to burn the filter core. Many people like to use gasoline to burn the ceramic filter element to remove impurities on the filter element when maintaining the gasoline filter. The hazard of this is that it is easy to catch fire, and at the same time it has an impact on the life of the filter element.

3. In the oil depot, it is not allowed to check the battery storage by short-circuiting. Because in poorly ventilated small oil depots, tires, batteries, tarpaulins and other equipment are often placed, and there is spilled gasoline on the ground, and sparks generated during a fire are likely to ignite the oil molecules in the air.

4. The tow train chain of the oil tanker is not allowed to be wound on the girder. Oil, like other substances, generates static electricity when rubbing against another object. This kind of static flashover may ignite the fuel and cause a fire. Therefore, a grounded ground wire must be installed on the oil depot, and a grounded iron chain must be installed on the oil tanker to prevent static sparks in the oil tank. This iron chain must not be wound on the frame of the beam. On the ground, and the mopping section is not less than 50 cm.

5. It is strictly forbidden to refuel under the high-voltage wires.

6. The hanging fire method is not allowed to be used frequently. Sometimes car spark plugs will have carbon deposits. When the carbon deposits in a certain cylinder are severe, the cylinder cannot work normally. In order to make the cylinder work normally, the method of “hanging fire” outside the cylinder is adopted (leave 3 between the spark plug and the high-voltage line). Mm—4 mm gap) to increase the spark-over energy of the spark plug electrode and restore the cylinder to work, but the general “hanging” method is easy to fall off if you don’t pay attention to it. If there is dripping gasoline on the cylinder, it is extremely prone to fire. Therefore it is only a temporary remedy. The correct treatment should be to clean and maintain the spark plugs in time, and try to avoid using the “hanging fire” method.

7. No drips or leaks in the automobile oil system. If there is a leak in the oil circuit of the chassis, and it is encountering a late ignition point and a lean point of the mixture, the exhaust pipe will ignite due to the slow combustion, and the temperature of the vehicle body will rise, more than ten times the ignition point of gasoline vapor (gasoline vapor The ignition point is 28°C). Ignite the leaked oil, which is very easy to cause fire and cause the car body to be scrapped. If the carburetor part drips on the cylinder head, the high-voltage spark leakage of the spark plug may also cause a fire.
