The mixer truck often drives on the road. With the car running, the concrete on the truck will be mixed along with it. After arriving at the destination, the concrete on the truck is basically mixed and does not dry, so it can be used immediately. As the wheels often contact the ground in the process of driving, it is inevitable that there will be wear. How to make the mixer wheel durable?、
1. Avoid turning in place
Due to the poor feeling of the car, many novices like to play in situ. This bad habit is basically brought out of the driving school. Turning the direction in place will make the wear of the tire concentrate on the same contact surface, causing serious local wear of the tire and shortening its service life. Therefore, the driver should avoid turning the direction in situ, and should turn the direction when the tire is rolling. In this way, the ground will bring all-round and uniform normal wear and tear to the mixer tire.
2. Avoid bumping into shoulders and potholes
Some drivers tend to park their cars on the shoulder of the road. In the process of mixing truck riding on the shoulder, the tire will be squeezed, which is easy to cause tire cord breakage on the side of mixer tire, resulting in tire bulge.
The potholes on the road should also be avoided. When the mixer tire runs through the hole, the mixer tire will also be squeezed. The larger the hole and the higher the speed, the greater the pressure on the tire, which will also lead to the tire bulge.
3. Avoid rubbing against the tire wall
Most of the time, rubbing the tire wall is unintentionally caused when the mixer is drawing near. It may be the driver's poor feeling of the car, or the driver's desertion. The side of the mixer tire is the weak part of the tire. If the tire is seriously worn, it will cause the tire bulge and bring the hidden danger of tire burst. Therefore, the driver should pay more attention to the distance between the mixer and the road shoulder to avoid rubbing the tire wall.
4. Maintain proper tire pressure
Proper tire pressure can ensure the even ground area of concrete mixer tire and reduce unnecessary wear. Therefore, the driver should develop the habit of regularly testing the tire pressure, and know the tire pressure status at any time. You can go to a professional repair shop to test the tire pressure. You can also buy a tire pressure gauge to test it yourself. The tire pressure standard can refer to the tire pressure label of the mixer.
5. Don't reduce tire pressure in summer
Many drivers mistakenly believe that the temperature is high in summer and reducing the tire pressure can avoid tire burst. In this way, the contact surface between the mixer tire and the ground will increase, the friction force will increase, the tire wear will be accelerated, and the temperature of the mixer tire will rise faster, and the tire will burst more easily. Therefore, it is necessary to maintain normal tire pressure in summer.
Attention must be paid to the maintenance of the wheels. In addition, the concrete mixer truck should avoid taking some potholes as far as possible during the driving process, which can effectively protect the wheels and help to prolong the service life of the wheels.
