MODULE 4 Bobtail Inspections

Slide 2

Introduction The U.S. Division of Transportation (DOT) requires bobtail drivers to investigate their vehicles before working them every day. Vehicles must experience month to month, yearly, and five-year investigations. Notwithstanding leading and recording customary vehicle assessments, is your capacity to securely work your vehicle and give careful consideration to your driving obligations. Targets After finishing this module, you will have the capacity to: Identify day by day pre-exchange and stroll around examination prerequisites Indicate month to month, yearly, and five-year review and documentation necessities Describe techniques for taking care of mishaps and crises with a propane spill

LESSON 1 Walk-Around and Pre-Transfer Inspections

Slide 4

Walk-Around and Pre-Transfer Inspections Walk-Around Inspection Performing a stroll around assessment of your bobtail subsequent to stacking at the mass plant minimizes the hazard for framework or documentation issues when touching base at the conveyance site. Pre-Transfer Inspection 49 CFR obliges you to outwardly check the payload tank crisis release framework, conveyance hose and hose get together, and crisis release control hardware consistently before exchanging propane. You may play out your pre-exchange investigation either in the meantime as your day by day pre-trip examination or before emptying at your first client\'s area.

Slide 5

Walk-Around Inspection After stacking, play out a stroll around assessment to check your bobtail is in safe working condition. Ensure: The power take-off (PTO) is separated. The fluid interior valve and vapor inner valve are shut. All required vehicle and load tank tests and investigations are present. Stacking printed material is finished. Instruments and different things utilized amid stacking are appropriately stowed and secured. Shipping papers, composed crisis release control methods, and your DOT hazardous materials authentication of enrollment are in appropriate request Delivery tickets and some other supplies are sorted out and legitimately secured in the taxi. In the event that all things are in safe working condition, expel the chock hinders from the back wheels, stow them in their vehicle rack or box, and continue to your first conveyance area.

Slide 6

Walk-Around Inspection cont. Separate the PTO. Close the fluid and vapor inside valves.

Slide 7

Pre-Transfer Inspection DOT obliges you to investigate the accompanying parts of your bobtail every prior day exchanging propane at client areas. Assess the freight tank release framework, including: Pump Piping Visible between the pump and different parts Liquid inside valve Automatic sidestep valve(s) Liquid meter Line valves and hydrostatic alleviation valves MORE

Slide 8

Pre-Transfer Inspection cont. Examine the conveyance hose and conveyance hose get together, including: Hose cover Hose couplings Hose reel Inspect the crisis release control gear, including: Manually-actuated frameworks Off-truck remotely initiated frameworks Note: You should not exchange propane or work your bobtail until you have finished an every day pre-exchange review and ensured any important repairs have been made.

Slide 9

Cargo Tank Discharge System: Rejection Criteria DOT requires bobtail administrators to check the parts of the payload tank release framework to guarantee they are in appropriate working request and that all associations are secure. You should not start exchange operations in the event that you discover any of the accompanying imperfections in the load tank release framework. You should check for: Any outer release identifiable without the utilization of instruments. Jolts that are free, missing, or seriously eroded. Manual stop valves that won\'t enact. Adaptable connectors with unmistakable breaks or slippage at the couplings, or connectors with lapsed consistence dates. Hose with uncovered support or for all time twisted wire interlace fortification. MORE

Slide 10

Cargo Tank Discharge System: Rejection Criteria cont. Weaknesses in hose when not under weight or swelling in hose when under weight. Hose with free external covering or harmed, slipped, or worn couplings. Fluid inner valves that hole or neglect to close. Pipes or joints that are extremely eroded.

Slide 11

Delivery Hose and Assembly: Rejection Criteria You are required to examine the conveyance hose and its get together consistently as you loosen up the hose before every exchange. In the event that you discover any of the accompanying imperfections in the conveyance hose or get together, then you should not start exchange operations. Check for: Hose cover harm that uncovered the support. For all time crimped or straightened wire twist fortification. Protruding under weight. Free external covering. Harmed, slipping, or unnecessarily worn couplings. Free or missing screws or fastenings on hose coupling gatherings. Continuously expel from administration quickly any hose with indications of uncommon mishandle, for example, extending, crimping, or leveling by a vehicle.

Slide 12

Emergency Discharge Control Equipment: Rejection Criteria Bobtails can be outfitted with two sorts of crisis shutdown frameworks. Physically initiated frameworks You should not start item exchange if working levers, links, poles, or switches are broken, seriously consumed, seized, or generally harmed. Make certain to outwardly assess fusible components. Off-truck remotely initiated frameworks You should not start item exchange if: The hand-held transmitter neglects to enact the shutdown framework. Controls neglect to work without unnecessary constrain. Associations are consumed so they seize or tie. Physically actuated frameworks MORE

Slide 13

Emergency Discharge Control Equipment: Rejection Criteria cont. Off-truck remotely initiated frameworks cont. Controls are not obviously named. The controls on remote confrontation gadgets must be obviously marked so they are valuable to crisis responders, organization drivers, and emptying administrators. When testing a remote transmitter or recipient, have the payload tank in sight and remain no less than 150 ft from it. You should investigate crisis release control hardware inside 18 hours before the main conveyance of the day to guarantee they are working appropriately. NOTE: Follow your organization\'s approaches and techniques identified with pre-exchange assessment necessities for remotely initiated frameworks. Remotely-initiated framework

LESSON 2 Monthly, Annual, and Five-Year Inspections

Slide 15

Monthly Inspections DOT requires any skillful individual assigned by the vehicle\'s proprietor or administrator to perform and record a month to month bobtail investigation. Month to month vehicle assessments give a chance to: Verify appropriate working conditions. Note inadequacies requiring quick consideration. Plan tests, reviews, or upkeep due the next month. MORE

Slide 16

Monthly Inspections cont. The things to check amid the month to month bobtail investigation are the same as the day by day pre-exchange review aside from the accompanying vital contrasts:   The examination of the hose and its get together is more itemized. The fluid inner valve investigation requires a meter crawl test. The month to month review must be recorded. Take note of: Some propane advertisers incorporate extra things in their month to month bobtail review programs, so make certain to check with your chief.

Slide 17

Inspecting the Delivery Hose and Assembly Inspecting the conveyance hose and its get together requires looking at the full length of the hose and its associations and fittings. The hose must be pulled far from the hose reel and inspected to figure out whether any of the hose dismissal criteria are available. A novel conveyance hose get together recognizable proof number ought to be confirmed amid the review. Take after the means beneath while finishing the month to month examination of the conveyance hose and its get together: Lay the hose out as straight as conceivable to abstain from crimping. Check for cuts, scraped areas, weaknesses, rankles, free external covers, and lumps.
