The Influence Factors Of Concrete Pump Oil Consumption & Solutions
The fuel consumption of concrete pump depends on many factors, such as pump type, working pressure, pumping distance, pumping height, concrete fluidity, concrete mix ratio and pumping speed.
Concrete pump fuel consumption is the biggest overhead in the daily work of a concrete pump truck. To reduce the cost of pumping, we should consider how to make the pump truck more fuel-efficient. For concrete pump truck, what are the ways to save fuel?
1. Tire pressure
Low tire pressure can lead to tire deformation, resulting in increased friction, which leads to increased oil consumption.
Meanwhile, the truck drives on different roads. Different road conditions have different requirements on tire pressure. Normal tire pressure is applicable to general paved roads, but on rough roads such as sand and mud, the tire pressure needs to be lowered appropriately to avoid the truck being caught.
2. Reasonable pumping
In the process of pumping concrete, high-grade gears with small transmission ratio should be selected. The thermal efficiency of the engine is the highest at this time, which means more oil can be saved.
3. Chassis engine output
When buying, it is recommended to choose a chassis engine with higher output power. Pulling a big car with a low-power chassis not only can't reduce fuel consumption, but also will accelerate engine wear and tear and reduce engine life.
4. Pump truck weight reduction
Under the condition of the same chassis engine, the lighter the upper weight of the pump truck, the more fuel-efficient.
5. High and low pressure pumping
The engine consumes fuel to convert chemical energy into kinetic energy. To get higher kinetic energy and stronger pumping pressure, more fuel must be consumed. So when to use high pressure pump and when to use low pressure pump becomes the key to save fuel consumption.
When pumping concrete horizontally or downward, the gravity of the concrete needs to be overcome, so it is appropriate to use low-pressure pumping. When pumping concrete vertically upward, high pressure is needed to complete the pumping. Therefore, specific analysis of specific scenarios, flexible switching between high and low pressure pumping methods, which can help reduce fuel consumption.
6. Displacement size control
Concrete pump displacement, like pumping pressure, will also affect the oil consumption. The larger the displacement the greater the hydraulic oil output per unit of time, the higher the engine speed, and the higher the fuel consumption.
Therefore, the choice of displacement also requires the operator to make a reasonable judgment based on the experience accumulated in daily work.
7. Operating experience of different drivers and operators
The fuel consumption of a pump truck is also closely related to the driving habits and operating experience of the driver. The same vehicle, operated by an experienced and skilled pump operator, will save more fuel than a novice operator.
The fuel consumption of a concrete pump is related to many factors. And in the actual use process, different equipment brands, configurations, working conditions, etc. all affect the fuel consumption to a greater or lesser extent.
