With the furious construction industry, more and more big car drivers are starting to drive concrete pump trucks. Due to the large difference in performance, even an old driver who has been driving for a few years, is still a green hand in driving concrete pump trucks. What should he pay attention to during running a concrete pump truck?
1. Loose units
In the newly processed and assembled parts, there are variations in geometry and fit dimensions. In the initial stage of use, it is easy to make due to the alternating load such as impact and vibration, as well as the influence of heat and deformation, and excessive wear. The parts that were originally tightened were loose.
Leakage may occur at the sealing surface of the machine and the pipe joints due to the looseness of the machine, the vibration and the heat of the machine. Under the action of vibration and impact during the actual operation, the phenomenon of leakage (seepage) oil (water) is exposed.
3. Fast wear rate
Due to the influence of factors such as processing, assembly and adjustment of the new machine parts of the pump truck, the friction surface is rough, the contact area of the mating surface is small, and the surface pressure is uneven. During the operation of the pump truck, the concave and convex parts on the surface of the parts are frictionally engaged with each other, and the ground metal debris is further involved in friction, which accelerates the wear of the mating surface of the parts. At this time, if a concrete pump truck is overloaded, it may cause damage to parts and cause early failure.
Of course, these are only the most important tips you should pay attention to in running a concrete pump truck. Practical cases would be more complicated, and you have to learn with the increase of your driving experience.
