Packaging and Transportation Methods to Avoid Scratching the Steel Pipe

Date:2021-09-16    keywords:pipe packaging and transportation, avoid scratches
When transporting all kinds of pipes, you should make preparations for packaging in advance, and perform standardized operations for transportation and loading to avoid scratches on the pipes and bear unnecessary losses.

1. Choose suitable tools for loading and unloading
Most of the pipes are used in the construction and manufacturing industries. With the continuous improvement of industry standards, the requirements for pipes are gradually increasing. There are also some polished pipes that require special attention during loading and unloading. Generally, pipes are loaded and unloaded by hoisting methods. To prevent scratches, nylon belts or wire ropes with spacers should be used for hoisting. It is strictly forbidden that the wire ropes directly contact the pipes.

2. Stable loading and unloading
In the process of loading and unloading the truck, you should apply force steadily, and keep steady when lifting and lowering, and don't shake back and forth. Shaking from side to side will cause the pipes to collide and squeeze each other, causing wear and scratches on the surface. Load and unload in order to avoid forcibly lifting the pipe below, causing impact and abrasion.

3. Can be protected separately if possible
If conditions permit, each pipe should be individually packaged and wrapped with simple spacers, which can effectively prevent mutual wear. Of course, some large pipes must be packaged separately and should be operated in accordance with relevant requirements.

4. There are requirements for strapping when packaging
The strapping work requirements before transportation are very strict. The ordinary pipes are packaged in bundles. The same type and specification pipes should be bundled, and the bundles should not be mixed to avoid loose bundles of different types of pipes and mutual damage. There are also certain restrictions on the weight of each bundle, mainly for the safety of transportation and loading.

5. Use more strapping materials as much as possible
In order to ensure safety and avoid loose bundles that cause the pipes to collide with each other, strapping straps should be used as required when strapping, and each bundle should reach a certain number, and tools such as clasps should also be used between the bundles to prevent transportation during transportation. There is looseness, falling off, and scratches on the pipe.

6. Special pipes need to be packaged in containers
Some seamless tubes and stainless steel tubes should be packaged in wooden boxes or plastic boxes that meet the standards. Before packing, the boxes should be filled with foam and insulation to avoid squeezing, and plastic sheets should be used to prevent moisture. The packing boxes may be fixed to prevent collision damage to the pipe.

7. The carriage is guaranteed to be safe
Before loading the truck, clean the truck body to ensure that there are no hard objects such as stones and iron blocks to avoid scratching the pipes. Sleepers should be padded 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 abrasion caused by moving back and forth.
