Four methods to protect concrete mixer truck tires

With the cost of concrete mixer truck continuous increased, concrete mixer truck tire is actually cost much, the driving method and tire wear have great relationship. Good and skilled driving technology can effectively reduce the wear of concrete mixer truck tires, extend the service life of the tires and improve driving safety. We can not control the price, so how to reduce the wear, protect tires using period to maximize is what we must master.

First, the pressure should reach the standard. The concrete mixer truck driver shall inflate the tire in accordance with the requirement. When the tire pressure is lower than the standard value, the tire shoulder wear abruptly increased. When the tire pressure is higher than the standard value, due to the tire ground area decreases, the unit pressure increases, so that the tires middle wear increased, at the same time, the rigidity of the tire is increased, and the dynamic load of the concrete wheel is increased and the carcass burst is liable to occur. Second, do not splash water to dissipate heat. The tires are prone to overheating during long periods in summer or with high speed, while the pressure increased. At this time, the driver should parking to dissipate heat, deflated or water cooling is strictly prohibited to prevent the rubber abnormal aging. Third, no cracks in the tread. Timely check whether the concrete mixer truck tire surface has cracks, deformation and other defects. The tires tread groove gradually become shallow due to running wear, if the tread is polished, the tire will lose non-slip drainage effect, the performance will be greatly reduced, and small cracks is hidden danger of puncture in high-speed driving. Also pay attention to remove small stones in the groove timely. Fourth, the parking on level ground. Avoid placing concrete mixer truck on pavements with thick, sharp stones. Do not park in near or contact with acid substances and other materials that affect the rubber deterioration of the material. The driver does not turn the steering wheel after stopping, and this will speed up the wear of the tire.
