With the steady development of the national economy, the demand for oil from all walks of industry is increasing, which makes the transportation of refined oil become more and more routine, and the fuel tanker truck is also more intensive. At the same time, the safety problems in the transportation of refined oil are becoming more and more prominent, and the safety of refined oil transportation is urgent.

I. How should we eliminate the fuel tank transportation security risks?

1. Explosion-proof camera is installed on the fuel tank truck

It is necessary to monitor the fuel tanker truck transporting refined oil. The fuel tank truck is equipped with explosion-proof camera and connected with the alarm system. Once an accident occurs, the driver can immediately sound the alarm and call the police. Deal with it in time to minimize the damage.

Fuel tanker professional car explosion-proof camera installed on the trailer tail or oil outlet or head, after can see the entire tanker truck condition.It can be found in a timely manner that the tanker is smoking or leaking oil.You can also see the wide Angle through the on-board explosion-proof camera lens when reversing, and assist reversing, without touching other obstacles that scratch the body,can reduce the occurrence of oil truck accidents from the root above. The tank trailer truck is the most prone to accidents when traveling at night, so the explosion-proof camera installed on the trailer must have a good night vision function, and it can also see the road condition after the trailer in the dark.

When installing on-board explosion-proof cameras for oil tanker trailers, corresponding explosion-proof isolation measures should be taken for cable laying because of the flammable and explosive oil and gas substances in the field environment. Through the real-time monitoring of the fuel tanker trailer, in the accident signs or has occurred when the accident, timely response, keep accidents to a minimum.

2. The fuel tanker truck driver should pay attention to safety issues.

In addition to the installation of explosion-proof monitoring system, in order to effectively avoid tanker truck accidents, tanker truck drivers also need to pay attention to the following problems in the process of transporting refined oil products.

(1) Fatigue driving is strictly prohibited

Driving a fuel tanker truck in hot weather in summer or in an overheated environment in the driving room, the temperature is high and the air circulation is poor, the driver is easy to fatigue.Drivers may feel mental fatigue, vision gradually become blurred, thinking becomes dull, especially in the afternoon or midnight driving very easy to fall asleep, and even drivers instantly lose memory phenomenon, forced driving will lead to traffic accidents.At the same time, driving on the highway, the road environment is single, traffic interference is less, the speed is stable, the noise in the driving and the vibration frequency is small, easy to make the driver produce monotonous feeling and drowsiness, appear “highway hypnosis”phenomenon.

(2) Pay attention to electrostatic accumulation

The amount of oil in the oil tank should be appropriate: the oil in the oil tank is too little, the shaking space in the transportation is large, and it is easy to produce static electricity.Too much, it is easy to overflow the tank truck with lax sealing of the oil tank mouth, so the filling amount is appropriate at about 85%.In addition, the transportation should be maintained at medium speed to ensure that the oil in the tank is relatively stable, but also to minimize emergency braking. To connect the electrostatic wire, ensure that the electrostatic wire and the ground contact.

(3) Keep away from fire

Do not smoke, answer and dial mobile phones when driving the fuel tanker trucks, and stay away from the fire when parking. Do not stop at the edge of the fire, easy to cause an explosion accident.

(4) To avoid the fuel tank engine temperature is too high

In summer, the technical condition of the tank truck should be checked frequently, and the safety parts of the vehicle should be inspected. Driving vehicles in hot summer weather, should always pay attention to the change of water temperature meter, generally not more than 95℃, especially when the vehicle is loaded or driving on the mountain road, but also pay attention to prevent engine overheating.If the temperature is too high, it is necessary to choose a cool place to stop in time to cool down, and the engine cover can be lifted for ventilation and heat dissipation. After the temperature is lowered, check whether the engine cooling system is short of water and the cause of high temperature.

Coolant boiling due to engine overheating or lack of water,do not immediately shut down the engine, should stop the engine idle operation, after the temperature is reduced, shut down the engine, and then open the radiator cover with cotton gauze or gloves, to prevent boiling cooling water scald hands and face.

(5) Pay attention to tire temperature when driving a fuel tanker truck

Summer driving should not be too long, should be every two hours or after a journey, the appropriate parking rest at the same time check the tire temperature.When the tire pressure is found rise due to overheating, should try to park the diesel oil truck in the shade or shade, let the tire natural cooling, pressure, can not be used to deflate or splashing cold water method to reduce the tire pressure and temperature. In addition, summer driving should try to avoid emergency braking, vehicle overload is strictly prohibited.

When driving, suddenly tire burst is a big hidden danger of summer safety driving. When a flat tire occurs, do not be in panic to the opposite direction of the steering wheel or a quick step on the brake pedal, as far as possible to use the “grab block” method, the use of engine clamp effect (commonly known as engine braking) to slow down the petroleum tanker truck. Have not yet controlled the speed before, do not risk to use of driving brakes to stop, in order to avoid the truck sideways swinging more dangerous situation.

(6) Emergency disposal measures for brake failure of fuel tank

In summer driving, it is easy to appear brake pipeline gas obstruction, rupture or brake fluid, gas pressure is insufficient and other reasons, leading to brake failure, failure phenomenon, posing a threat to driving safety.Parking brake can not be used to tighten the joystick, a tightening is easy to “lock” the parking brake disc, damage the transmission parts, loss of braking force.

(7) Emergency measures for steering failure

Summer is easy to cause a variety of vehicle failures, when the steering suddenly lost control, the driver in the tank trailer  truck and the road ahead allows to maintain a straight line driving, not to use emergency braking, should immediately lift the accelerator pedal, grab the block deceleration, uniform and hard pull the parking brake for assistance.When the speed is significantly weakened, gently step the brake pedal, slow and steady stop. When the trailer truck has deviated from the direction of straight driving, the accident has been inevitable, should be decisive and continuous step on the brake pedal, so that the truck as soon as possible to slow down to stop, as far as possible to shorten the parking distance, reduce impact strength.At the same time of taking emergency measures, warning signals can be issued to other vehicles and pedestrians on the road, such as turning on danger alarm lights, turning on headlights, honking horns or gesturing.

(8) You need to be more careful when driving a fuel tanker trailer truck at night

Before driving at night in summer, all the lights and mirrors should be checked to ensure that the lights are normal and the mirror is clean.High beams are used for driving at night when the speed exceeds 30km/h.The speed is within 30km/h, and the near-light can be used.Night meeting should be in the distance with the other side of the vehicle change far, near light to observe the situation ahead.When 150 meters away from the other side of the vehicle, timely switch to a near-light.Don’t look into the bright light of an oncoming car.

When passing through urban areas, towns or bridges, you should slow down and pay attention to people walking on both sides of the road or bridge. Be ready for emergencies at any time.
