How to Maximize the Service Life of Fuel Stainless Steel Tanker
The longer the mileage, the more frequent the maintenance
Many people tend to do maintenance quite frequently when their tanker trailer is still new. However, the longer they use it, the less attention they will pay. It may sound a little extreme, but this practice is seen more often than we think. As a matter of fact, the frequency of maintenance should be proportional to the mileage of stainless steel tanker trailers. In another word, the longer the tanker trailer is used and the greater the mileage, the more frequent the maintenance should be done. For instance, normally a new tanker trailer should be serviced every 10,000 kilometers, while a 10-year-old tanker trailer should be serviced every 1,000 kilometers. That’s why for any tanker trailers older than six years, an inspection must be done annually.
Avoid turning the steering wheel to its limit
When driving the tanker trailer, many drivers have the bad habit to turn the steering wheel all the way to its limit and even intensify the turning process. They think by doing so best accuracy can be obtained. However, this practice is very harmful to the truck and tanker trailer as this will greatly aggravate the wear of ball joint and connecting rod of steering system. In addition, for vehicles with power steering, when steering wheel is turned to its limit, the fluid flow output from the power pump to the steering gear is at its maximum, which makes the internal oil pressure and temperature suddenly rise. This will often cause damage or even leakage of the power system.
Avoid slamming the brake
Many drivers like to slamming the accelerator and then slamming on the brake. There are mainly two types braking system: disc braking and rum braking. Disc braking uses the energy generated from friction between brake pad and break disc to brake, in which case the brake pad is a consumable part. Frequently slamming the brake will shorten the service life of brake pad. Depending on different drivers’ driving habit, some will replace their brake pad after 40,000 kilometers, while others will need to replace them only after 10,000 kilometers. If drum brake is frequently slammed, overheating or even system failure will occur, which is a huge safety hazard. That said, only slam the brake when it’s necessary. Always cover the brake paddle with your foot when you’re not sure of the road condition and brake periodically if needed.
Slow down under rough road condition
Some truck drivers like to drive their tanker trailer like they stole it. They do not slow down over speed bumps, ditches, or potholes. This dangerous driving style usually damage the wheel alignment and suspension system, lead to vehicle deviation, and shorten the tire life. Sometimes, vehicle’s chassis will be scratched badly.
Avoid driving with low fuel warning light on
When the fuel tank warning light is on, it indicates that the fuel is low. Experienced drivers tend to continue driving because they know there’s still enough fuel left to last another 20 to 30 kilometers at least. However, the gasoline pump of many vehicles is installed directly at the bottom of fuel tank and relies on the amount of gasoline available for lubrication and cooling. If there is very little gasoline left in the fuel tank, the gasoline pump will not be properly lubricated and cooled when driving, and therefore, will be damaged.
