Fuel Tanker


1. Introduction of Fuel tanker

Fuel tanker is the short name of fuel tank truck. or we call it fuel transportation truck or vehicle. There are two basic models, one is only for the transport of fuels, and the other one is with the refueling equipment, which can easily refuel fuels to other vehicles or machines anywhere it goes.

For the first, it only is the fuel transport truck which take fuels from one place to another, only give service to the fuel stations. So the basic function is pump in & pump out from the tank or to a fuel station.

2. Main components of fuel truck

1. Truck chassis

There are many Chinese truck chassis factories you can choose like Dongfeng, Sinotruk, Shacman, Isuzu, Foton, Jac, FAW, JMC, ...

2. Oil tanker body

The structure of the oil tank is oval-cylindrical or trapezoidal-cylindrical, etc., and is made of high-quality steel plates. The whole tank is divided into single or multiple warehouses. There are through holes at the lower end of the middle partition plate. The impact of the oil in the tank when the car is running increases the rigidity of the tank. In order to prevent rust, the surface of the tank is coated with anti-rust paint and decorative paint.

3. Tank mouth components on tank trucks (European standard tank mouth)

The European standard tank mouth is usually installed on the top of the tank car body, made of aluminum alloy and stainless steel, with built-in breathing and emergency exhaust energy, and can install oil and gas recovery valve, oil measuring hole, anti-overflow on the manhole cover Probe rod, etc. The built-in breathing valve keeps the internal pressure of the tanker stable during the oil transportation process, and balances with the external pressure. The design of dumping and overflowing keeps the tanker sealed in the event of an accident. The emergency exhaust device is in When the pressure in the tank rises sharply, it will automatically open to release the pressure in the tank, thereby preventing accidents and greatly improving the safety of oil transportation.

4. Tanker subsea valve (emergency shut-off valve)

The subsea valve is installed at the bottom of the tank body of the oil tanker. There are two kinds of pneumatic and manual. Generally, pneumatic is the main type. The material is aluminum alloy and stainless steel. There is a cut-off groove on the flange of the valve body. In the event of an accident in the oil tank, because the cut-off groove is unable to bear the excessive force, the body pipeline and the tank will be automatically disconnected, and the automatic centering plunger and durable spring will remain sealed. , the medium in the tank will not leak, so as to ensure the safety of the oil tank.

In order to ensure that the valve has good working ability, the following conditions must be met:

A. When the subsea valve is working, the system gas source must ensure the pressure of >0.4MPa,

B. The valve body and the middle plunger must be highly sealed.

C. The spring must maintain sufficient elastic force to reset.

5. Power take-off for oil tanker

Installed on the gearbox, there are two types of left and right. The main function is to take out the engine power and transmit it to the vehicle oil pump through the transmission shaft. See the instruction manual of the power take-off for its operation function.

6. Tanker oil pump

Optional self-priming centrifugal oil pump or gear oil pump, see the oil pump instruction manual for its performance.

7. Oil delivery hose for oil tanker

The oil feeding hose adopts CRJ65 type quick-change joint, which is directly connected, and the end face is sealed with a rubber ring, which is quick, convenient and reliable in disassembly and assembly. The oil delivery hose assembly has been tested for electrical conductivity, and it is safe and reliable to use.

8. Oil tanker ball valve

The valve of the self-flow port of the oil tanker adopts a ball valve, and the structure is shown in the figure. The ball valve is composed of valve body adjustment seat, sealing ring, ball valve, valve stem handle and other components. The ball valve can be turned on and off by turning the handle 900. The ball valve can be rotated and adjusted to meet the requirements.

9. Four-position three-way ball valve for oil tanker

The fuel truck control valve adopts a four-position three-way ball valve. The structure is shown in the figure. During use, the direction corresponding to the red dot on the valve stem indicates that this direction is in a closed state. The position shown in the figure indicates that the A direction is closed, and the B and C are connected.

10. Static conducting device for oil tanker

(1) Take the zone

It is installed on the tank foot at the rear of the oil truck, and it is always kept in contact with the ground. Its function is to guide the static electricity generated by the impact and shaking of the oil or the static electricity generated by the fuel tanker and the generator at any time into the ground at any time, so as to prevent fire accidents caused by static electricity.

(2) Avoid electric poles

It is fixed on the frame. When refueling or discharging oil, you must pull out the electric pole and insert it into the wet ground to guide the static electricity generated by the friction of the oil when refueling or draining the oil into the ground, so as to prevent the Fire accident caused by electrostatic short circuit.
