Anti corrosion protection of loaders for sea transportation

anti corrosion protection of loaders for sea transportation

March 18, 2021


with the continuous improvement of the overall manufacturing level of China's construction machinery industry, domestic loaders continue to attack the world market, and the number of exports is understood to be rising. How to deliver products to customers safely and quickly is a priority for the shipping department. The transportation mode of exported loaders should be comprehensively considered according to the geographical location, traffic conditions, transportation costs and other factors of customers. Generally, land transportation and sea transportation coatings are selected. Land neighboring countries bordering China are suitable for land transportation. Relying on infrastructure such as railways and highways, products can be easily delivered to their destinations. However, most countries are far away from China across the sea, so shipping is a cost-effective means of transportation. However, shipping usually takes a long time, and due to the influence of marine climate, the water vapor at sea is heavy, the salt in the air is high, and the loader is prone to corrosion. In order to ensure that the loader is delivered to the customer in good condition, the loader needs to be provided with necessary anti-corrosion protection before shipment and transportation

there are two ways to transport loaders at sea. One is to drive the whole machine directly to the deck of RO ro ships, and the other is to disassemble the whole machine into parts or large parts. The parts or large parts are loaded in containers first, and then the containers are loaded on container ships

marine protection of the whole machine

❖ spraying antirust wax

due to the humid sea air and high salt content, a layer of antirust wax needs to be sprayed on the outer surface of the loader. After the wax liquid dries, a continuous, dense protective film with certain hardness and uniform precautions and characteristics for the use of rubber tensile strength testing machine will be formed. This protective film can isolate water, air and salt fog in the sea, and destroy the conditions of corrosion, so as to achieve the purpose of preventing rust. Antirust wax is prepared by using solvent, special synthetic wax, antirust agent and other raw materials through special processing technology. According to different solvents, it can be divided into oil-soluble antirust wax and water-soluble antirust wax

oil soluble antirust wax has the characteristics of easy production and excellent performance, but it is easy to catch fire because it contains a large amount of organic solvents, and a large amount of VOC volatilization is harmful to human health and poor environmental friendliness. The use of it has been banned by environmental protection regulations in some countries. Water soluble antirust wax, mainly composed of basic paraffin, antirust agent, additive, emulsifier and water, with solids of 40% - 60%, produces very little VOC. Before the departure of the whole loader, consult the legal adviser to see whether the laws of the customer's country have clear provisions on the use of antirust wax, so as to determine which type of antirust wax should be used to avoid unnecessary risks

before wax spraying, the state of the whole machine needs to be checked, especially for long-term stock vehicles, a thorough inspection is required. First, check whether the appearance paint surface of the parts has bumps and scratches, especially the paint surface of the bucket; Secondly, check whether the parts have rusty parts, focusing on the edges and corners of the plate, the end face of the pin shaft, the joint part of the galvanized steel pipe, the hexagonal opposite side of the bolt and nut, the welding place of the steel plate and other parts; Finally, check whether the threaded hole plugs and grease fitting plugs reserved on the whole machine are complete. For the bumped and scratched parts, they should be polished and repainted; The rusted parts shall be polished to metallic luster at the same time, and then repainted; All rusty galvanized parts and standard parts shall be replaced; The missing plugs of threaded holes and grease fittings should be filled

the whole machine needs to be cleaned before entering the wax spraying room. The tools and materials that need to be used include buckets, high-pressure water guns, cleaning agents, towels, and brushes. Pump the configured cleaning agents to wash the floating ash and oil sludge on the body surface. For the parts that cannot be sprayed by the water gun or cannot be sprayed by the water gun, such as the centralized area of harness plug-ins, towels or brushes should be used to clean. After cleaning with the cleaning solution, clean it with clean water again, and remove the cleaning solution to ensure the adhesion of the wax film

after the whole machine is dry, drive into the wax spraying room to shield and wrap the whole machine. Wrap the non painted parts such as cab glass, cylinder piston rod, keyhole, rubber hose, belt, tire, harness, plug-in, rearview mirror, etc. with paper tape and shielding paper

spray anti rust wax on the appearance parts of the car body, cab, counterweight, etc; The engine and exhaust funnel shall be sprayed with engine antirust wax. The anti rust wax of the car body should be sprayed according to the principle of "up first, down second, inside first, outside first, corner first, large surface later". When spraying, the spray gun is 20 ~ 40cm away from the sprayed surface. According to the actual situation on site, the spraying sector is 20 ~ 30cm away from the ultra-high molecular polyurethane used in spinal surgery. The spray gun should be perpendicular to the sprayed surface, and the gun speed should be stable to ensure uniform wax film spraying. The wet film thickness of spraying is 50 ~ 70 µ m, without missing parts

porous and grooved parts such as hood filter should be sprayed twice. The direction of the first and second spraying should be vertical, and the gap of the bonding surface should not be missed. For the parts that are not suitable for spraying operation, such as the screws that fix the cab glass, galvanized pipe joints, galvanized pipe clamps, etc., you can use a brush or brush to dip the wax solution for brushing operation. When brushing, the wax solution must completely cover the brushed surface

after spraying/brushing antirust wax, check whether the spraying part has missed spraying, sagging, hanging ash, etc. the missed spraying part needs to be sprayed/brushed again, and the convection hanging and hanging ash parts need to be wiped with solvent before re spraying. Use a comb gauge thickness gauge to check whether the wet film thickness meets the requirements, and then wait for the wax to dry naturally, and remove the shielding package. Check whether there is protective wax at the shielding part. If there is, wipe it with solvent

protective measures should be taken before the whole machine is sprayed with antirust wax. Wear protective clothing, protective mask and plastic gloves. Avoid inhaling wax mist during the spraying process. If inhaled carelessly, headache and dizziness may occur. At this time, stop spraying immediately and transfer to a place with good ventilation to breathe fresh air. If the symptoms are serious, seek medical advice immediately. If the wax enters your eyes accidentally, you should immediately wash it with normal saline or flowing water, and get medical attention in time. After wax spraying, the protective clothing should be cleaned in time and should not be worn for a long time

❖ install protective packaging

a layer of bubble film shall be packaged outside the boarding pedal and handrail of the loader and fixed firmly with wide adhesive tape to prevent the driver from damaging the wax film when moving the vehicle

the joystick inside the cab is first wrapped with polyethylene plastic film, fixed with wide adhesive tape, and then wrapped with a layer of bubble film on the outside

the boom cylinder, tipper cylinder and steering cylinder of the loader will move relatively when moving the whole machine, so it is not suitable to spray antirust wax, nor can they be wrapped with polyethylene plastic film. You can mix oil into lithium grease, evenly brush a thin layer on the surface of the piston rod of the cylinder, and then put a special protective sleeve on the outside of the cylinder, which is cut with waterproof cloth, Customized according to the size of various oil cylinders, there are zippers and ties at both ends, which can be easily disassembled. Due to the soft texture of the protective sleeve, one end is fixed at the end of the oil cylinder and the other end is fixed at the top of the piston rod of the oil cylinder, which can expand and contract with the expansion and contraction of the oil cylinder. Practice has proved that this protective measure can effectively protect the cylinder piston rod from corrosion when shipping

the headlights of the loader are protected by protective covers. The material of the protective cover of the headlights is the same as that of the protective cover of the oil cylinder. The difference is in shape and size. The protective cover of the headlights does not have a zipper, only a tie wrap is left at one end, which is directly wrapped on the headlights from top to bottom, and the tie wrap can be fastened

after the installation of protective packaging, it is necessary to check whether there is any missing packaging; Whether the place wrapped with adhesive tape is firmly fixed; Whether the seal of the protective sleeve is tightly tied; Check whether the protective sleeve and polyethylene plastic film are damaged before departure

marine protection of large parts and components

due to tariff reasons, some overseas agents hope to ship in the form of large parts or components, so the import tax is relatively cheap. Shipping in this form requires containers. Containers are a kind of box containers. At present, the size has been standardized. Of course, the size can also be customized, but the manufacturing and transportation prices are relatively high, so we must make a packing plan in advance according to the size and quality of the parts to be loaded, the volume of the container, and the quality allowed to be stored, and try to choose general and commonly used containers. Large parts and components are placed in the container, and the cabinet door is closed to form a closed space, which is basically isolated from the external adverse conditions, so there is no need to spray anti rust wax for protection, but some basic protection is still needed

large parts (usually including the frame) need to be supported by brackets and separated from the ground at a certain distance. The places where the brackets and large parts contact should be separated by polyurethane pads to prevent damage to the surface coating of parts. The bracket shall be provided with fixing holes or welded fixing rings to facilitate fixing in the container. Large parts should be wrapped with bubble film to prevent dust accumulation and unnecessary collision damage during packing and transportation. The disassembled parts, such as the pin shaft, should be evenly brushed with a thin layer of lithium base grease on its processing surface, then wrapped with bubble film and placed in the parts box. Some parts with machining holes, such as the removed bucket, should be evenly brushed with a layer of lithium base grease on the machining surface of the hole with a brush, then wrapped with polyethylene plastic film and fixed firmly with wide adhesive tape


loader products will be seriously rusted if necessary protective measures are not taken during shipping. Practice has proved that measures such as spraying antirust wax and installing antirust packaging can effectively protect the whole machine from corrosion. Large parts and components are transported in containers. They can also be protected by making support brackets, applying grease, wrapping bubble films, polyethylene plastic films and other means
