What is a Conex Box

(cviiyctuvb) #1

Tank Conex Box containers are used for the liquid transport and made to carry dangerous as toxic, corrosive,
highly combustible chemicals, as well as oil, milk, beers, wine, mineral water, etc. They have the same
dimensions as a Dry Conex Box Containers, but their structure is different, as they include a polyethylene tank
inside.


Ventilated Conex Box Containers


Ventilated Conex Box containers are made for transporting products such as coffee or cocoa beans, which
must be ventilated in transit; sometimes these units are called “coffee containers”.


Now we are going to run through the essential parts of a conex box.


For a door to work, you need hinges. Pins hold the conex box's hinges together through a barrel. In certain
cases when doors are difficult to open, hinge pins and blades may be seized due to corrosion.


Each door is fitted with 2 to 4 vertical lock rods to enable opening, closing and locking of the doors.


The door handle rotates the lockbar to initiate the door opening process by forcing the cams out of their
keepers. Each door handle has a door locking handle retainer that slides over the door handle when in locked
position.


At the end of each lock rod is a cam welded in place which engages with knuckles, also known as cam
keepers. The action of engaging the cams to the keepers forms an anti-racking function. In certain cases, often
unfortunately too many, contents of the conex box may have shifted causing conex box doors and lockrods to
warp.


When opening a conex box, start with the right hand door first. Swivel the handles, engage the cams and
keepers, and twist both door handles. Closing the doors is just a reverse of this process.
