Packaging and transportation methods for fear of scratching pipes:
1. Select the appropriate tool for loading and unloading
Pipes are mostly used in the construction and manufacturing industries. With the continuous improvement of industry standards, the requirements for pipes are gradually increased. There are also some polished pipes, which need special attention during the loading and unloading process. Generally, pipes are loaded and unloaded by means of hoisting. In order to prevent scratches, nylon belts or wire ropes with spacers should be used for hoisting. It is strictly forbidden for the wire ropes to directly contact the pipes.
2. The loading and unloading needs to be stable
During the loading and unloading process, the force should be applied steadily, and the lifting and lowering should be kept steady, and do not shake back and forth. Shaking from side to side will cause the pipes to collide and squeeze each other, causing wear and scratches to the surface. Load and unload in sequence to avoid forcibly lifting the lower pipe, resulting in impact and wear.
3. Conditional protection can be carried out separately
If conditions permit, each pipe should be individually packaged and wrapped with a simple spacer, which can effectively prevent mutual abrasion. Of course, some large pipes must be individually packaged, and should be operated in accordance with relevant requirements.
4. There are requirements for bundling when packing
The requirements for bundling work before transportation are very strict. Ordinary pipes are bundled and packaged. Pipes of the same type and specification should be bundled, and cannot be bundled together to avoid bundles of different types of pipes. And the weight of each bundle also has certain restrictions, mainly for the safety of transportation and loading.
5. Use as many strapping materials as possible
In order to ensure safety and prevent the pipes from colliding with each other due to loose bundles, strapping tapes should be used as required when bundling, and each bundle should reach a certain number, and tools such as snap rings should also be used between bundles to prevent transportation. Loose, fall off, and scratch the pipe.
6. Special pipes need to be packed in containers
Some seamless pipes (seamless black pipe
) and stainless steel pipes
should be packed in wooden boxes or plastic boxes that meet the standard. Before packing, the boxes should be padded with foam, isolation quilts, etc. to avoid extrusion, and plastic cloths should be padded to prevent moisture. The boxes may be secured to prevent collisions from damaging the tubing.
7. The carriage is safe
Before loading, the body of the truck should be cleaned to ensure that there are no hard objects such as stones and iron blocks to avoid scratching the pipes. Sleepers should be placed at the bottom of the carriage, and spacers should be installed around the carriage to ensure that it is not damaged during transportation. In addition, the bundled and transported pipes should also be fixed around the carriage to avoid wear and tear caused by moving back and forth.
