How to Maintain Minibus Well – minibus manufacturer – KINGSTAR

The minibus seats can be said to be one of the most frequently used components in minibus and cargo van interiors. For minibus owners, the maintenance of every detail of the minibus cannot be ignored. Today we talks from three aspects as how to maintain minibus.  Air Filter Maintenance; seat maintenance, and how to maintain in summer. 

Most of the MINIBUS we export are equipped with leather seats. So how to maintain leather seats? Let’s take a look with everyone today. Keep in mind everyone~

4 factors make you maintain your minibus seats well

  • In daily use, in addition to avoiding sharp objects from scratching the leather, leather seats also need to be dust-proof and sun-proof. The sun will not only age the human skin but also make the leather seats age and dry. 
  • In addition to sunlight, leather seats should also be kept away from heat sources as much as possible in daily use. If they are too close to the heat source, excessively high temperatures will also cause the leather to dry and crack.
  • In addition to regular cleaning and maintenance, a vacuum cleaner is often used in daily use to remove dust on the seat, keeping the seat clean and beautiful, and also conducive to improving the service life of the leather seat.
  • After daily cleaning, do not use a hair dryer to quickly dry the leather. You can use a soft towel or cotton paper to dry the leather. In addition, you can also dry it naturally in a cool and ventilated place.
  1. The leather seats need to go through the four steps of cleaning, fatliquoring and repairing, toning, and feeling during maintenance.01
  2. First, use a leather cleaner to remove dust and stubborn stains on the leather surface.
  3. Secondly, the leather is supplemented with “nutrition” through fatliquoring, and then the scratched parts are repaired to make the leather surface smooth and smooth.
  4. Then, repair the abrasion of the leather surface according to the production process, so that the leather surface can restore its bright and bright color.
  5. Finally, use a special silk feel agent or leather feel agent to make the leather feel softer and smoother.

The seat is well maintained, and the driving is more comfortable.

Keep these maintenance tips in mind.

Keep your minibus and seat in the best condition at all times.

Minibus Air Filter Maintenance and Use

The function of the air filter is to filter out the dust and impurities in the ambient air entering the engine. This is to ensure that the air in the cylinder is clean. At the same time to reduce the wear between the cylinder and the piston, the piston group itself. As well as the parts of the valve group.

The air filter used in minibus engines is generally dry. Also, its filter element is high-quality filter paper that has undergone strict resin treatment. It is generally made into a corrugated shape to provide a large filtering area and is replaceable.

The air inlet of the air filter is generally connected to the pre-filter through a pipe. Moreover, the air outlet is connected to the pressure inlet of the turbocharger through a pipe.

After the air filter is used for a certain period of time, the filter element will become dirty. Also, the air intake resistance of the air filter will increase. When the air intake resistance of the air filter increases to 6.25kpa or more, the engine will become an insufficient air supply that will cause problems such as exhaust smoke and insufficient power.

It is absolutely forbidden for the engine to work without an air filter or when the air filter has failed.

The user can judge the blockage of the air filter by observing the air resistance indicator installed on the intake pipe behind the air filter. When the indicator window of the air resistance indicator changes from green to red under normal conditions. It indicates the filter The air intake resistance of the cleaner exceeds the limit value. Also, it needs to be cleaned or replaced. If there is no air resistance indicator on the air filter, check it regularly and clean or replace it according to the level of dust in the ambient air.

1) Road vehicles that work under special conditions with high ambient air content, such as mining vehicles.

After driving 2500-5000 kilometers (if the ambient air has low dust content, it can be extended appropriately)

2) Non-vehicle engines (such as generator sets, etc.)

After working for 100-200h (if the ambient air has low dust content, it can be appropriately extended).

3) Once the air filter is clogged, stop the machine to clean or replace the air filter element immediately. Then reset it by pressing the rubber plug at the end of the air resistance indicator.

Note: This component must be replaced in strict accordance with the instructions. And use the matching original filter element of the same model; avoid air leakage and short circuit during assembly, otherwise, it will cause power drop and early wear. The correct use and maintenance of the air filter can ensure and extend the service life of the engine.

Minibus maintenance: How to prevent fire and spontaneous combustion of mini buses in summer

Minibus maintenance is very important in summer. Because, the high temperature and scorching heat are coming, the temperature is rising steadily. To say, approaching 40 degrees Celsius, and the ground temperature even reaches 60 degrees Celsius at noon. In such a high temperature environment, how to prevent fire and spontaneous combustion of mini bus is particularly important. Because mini bus catch fire and spontaneously ignite at high temperatures. This is causing serious consequences to appear in the newspapers from time to time, we must all attach great importance to it.

In particular, the driver who is directly responsible for driving mini bus is the first responsible person. It is of great importance and responsibility. It must finish with a strong sense of responsibility and a high sense of urgency to the people. This work is so important. Let’s talk about my own opinions on how to prevent fire and spontaneous combustion of mini bus during the hot season for your reference.

Modern mini bus from formal enterprises are good in design and manufacturing. Our design is with superior technical standards and configuration. And it is in good consideration about how to prevent fire and spontaneous combustion. They meet various national standards and there is no problem in normal use. But if it is improperly in suing, improper maintenance will leave hidden dangers. In addition to the high temperature season, there may be unexpected fire risks and spontaneous combustion risks. Large passenger vehicles must resolutely prevent accidents such as fires and spontaneous combustion that seriously endanger personal safety. To completely eliminate serious safety hazards. Such as, fires and spontaneous combustion; managers; vehicle drivers; and vehicle maintenance personnel must do the following to prevent them before they happen.

Saying a thousand words and ten thousand is not empty talk. Only by paying attention can it be implemented in action, with a definite target. Implement various minibus maintenance plans and minor repair plans in place. Leave no room, no blind spots, and follow the system to prevent the overall situation.

This is a bottom line and a red line, which must be implemented 100%. Especially in the hot summer season, it is extremely dangerous to entrain the fire source in the luggage compartment in the carriage. Moreover, it is especially easy to cause fire danger and spontaneous combustion. The compartment should be kept tidy and clean, and no lighters, perfumes, air fresheners and other items should be placed. Because these items can easily cause fire hazards when exposed to high temperatures for a long time. Vehicle fire extinguishing devices must be adequately in place, and readily available.

In high temperature seasons, try to reduce unnecessary vehicle electricity consumption to reduce the load on the generator. Generators, air conditioners, batteries, retarders, dashboards, circuit boards, fuse boxes, clue grounding wires. Also, other circuit facility connectors must be clean, and free from dust and oil. And they are clearly visible at a glance and within the normal working range. Always check the circuit system for abnormal heat or smell during working hours to prevent short circuits caused by wire grounding. Frequently observe the working conditions of each instrument for abnormalities and odors. If there are signs of malfunction, it should be eliminated in time to avoid future troubles.

Especially for the exhaust pipe, the connections must be firm, the exhaust pipe insulation layer must be intact. Moreover the fireproof paper must be fully wrapped. The temperature around the exhaust pipe is very high due to the high temperature. It is very dangerous if the oil circuit line falls on it. It is clear that there is no leakage of oil, electricity, water, and air.

At this time, in case that the brake is not in place, the sealing performance of the oil seal is not good. At the same time, the gear oil overflows. It may cause the brake system to overheat and cause smoke or even fire. Therefore, we must do the usual minibus maintenance. This is to prevent overloading. And to insist on driving at a medium speed, try to reduce the braking, and the high temperature.

In addition, vehicle tires should be properly in suing. The regular brand tires as guide wheels, the rear wheels should also be in good condition. Also, the tire pressure shouldkeeping in a little lower than the specified value. Because in the hot summer, the tire temperature of the tire itself and the temperature will be very high. If there is a defect, it is very likely to cause a puncture and cause a fire hazard. You must use it with caution, take a rest at an appropriate time, cool down naturally, and calculate a safety account.
