Advantages of having Conex Boxes

Conex Boxes are the cargo containers that allow goods to be stored for transport in trucks, trains, and boats, making intermodal transport possible. They are typically used to transport heavy materials or palletized goods. Conex Boxes are used to protect transported cargo from shock and bad weather conditions, as well as keep storage products intact. They were first used in the 1950s and were initially developed for the purpose of commercial shipping.

There are various types of Conex boxes.

Common types include:

·        Dry Storage Conex Boxes

·        Refrigerated Conex Boxes

·        Open Top Conex Boxes

·        Flat Rack Conex Boxes  

·        Open Side Conex Boxes

·        Tank Conex Boxes

·        Ventilated Conex Boxes

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 the opening, closing, and locking of the doors.

The door handle rotates the lock bar 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 a locked position.

At the end of each lock, the 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 lock rods 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 doors handles. Closing the doors is just a reverse of this process.

The lockbox is a steel box welded to the right-hand door which overlaps a staple welded to the left-hand door. A padlock, normally CISA type 285 66 can then be attached inside the lockbox through the staple and is then protected from direct attack, hindering attempts to gain entry to the container.

ISO markings and a consolidated data plate allow worldwide intermodal transport and are updated as necessary.

Take note that customs authorities in some countries may also have their own container seal regulations as part of their national security.

Rubber gaskets are fitted to the container doors during the manufacturing process and prevent water ingress. Door gaskets are designed to present two or more fins against the structure or adjacent door. These are generally flexible but when the gasket is damaged, it may become stiff thus jamming the door closed, or preventing it from being closed.

Conex boxes often take a beating, traveling around the world, being exposed to freezing conditions and rust due to seawater, or when the frost has melted.

During the cold season, and in freezing parts of the world, our conex box tool can benefit the opening and closing of frozen Conex box doors and hard-to-open or rusted containers.

Injuries often occur as a result of personnel trying to open and close difficult container doors, and often are the result of inappropriate techniques being used to open them.

To aid in opening and closing conex box doors, we introduce OPNBar.

Our conex box tool can simplify the opening/closing of Conex boxes in freezing or wet conditions. Its versatility can also help to open/close rusted or worn-out containers, thump tires, and release tractors from the trailer.

Our 3 in 1 Conex box tool gives you the best bang for your buck in addition to the safety and savings our tool provides to trucking companies and their safety departments, along with insurance companies, reduced workman’s comp claims.

Wellnergy Pets Hairball Control Multivitamin for Cats

Hurk, hurk, hurk, blaagh! I think I can speak for all cat owners that the sound of one of our furry felines vomiting a hairball is one of the most effective ways to be awoken from a dead sleep. Cats are known vomiters in popular culture, and no cat parent is a stranger to the experience. However, did you know that it’s actually not normal for cats to vomit up hairballs? That’s right – the digestion of hair should happen naturally for every kitty, and having hairballs is a sign that something is not quite right in your cat’s body.

What Is A Hairball?

Hairballs are exactly as the name implies – they are slimy clumps of hair and stomach fluids that come out when a cat vomits, otherwise known as a ‘trichobezoar’. Typically, there is no food or other material mixed in. Hairballs are formed when a large amount of hair is ingested during grooming. The natural, sharp barbs of a cat’s tongue pick up loose hairs that are then swallowed.

Despite the name, hairballs are rarely ever in the shape of a ball. Instead, they are typically elongated, which is formed by the shape of the esophagus they pass through on their way out. The stomach fluids that come out range from clear to yellow or green, while the hair retains its original color.

What Causes Hairballs?

While most ingested hair passes from the stomach through the intestines and out of the body as fecal matter, in some cats, this process doesn’t occur effectively. For these cats, the hair becomes trapped in the stomach and causes irritation. Some of the hair then gets vomited out as a hairball. A rare, but related life-threatening condition is when a clump of hair becomes stuck in the intestines, causing an obstruction. This obstruction can impede food from passing through and can even cut off intestinal blood circulation.

 Who Gets Hairballs?

Any cat can suffer from hairballs, and most cats inevitably do occasionally. Cats with the following traits more commonly suffer from hairballs:

– Long-haired cats

– Cats who overgroom themselves

– Cats who groom other cats or pets

– Cats who are not eating enough fiber

– Cats with other intestinal disorders

What Are Some Symptoms of Hairballs?

– Vomiting and producing hairballs more than once every few months

– Continuous vomiting or gagging without producing anything

– Lethargy

– Constipation or diarrhea

– Decreased appetite

How Are Hairballs Treated?

In milder cases, your veterinarian may recommend one or more of the following remedies:

– At home grooming: Grooming your cat regularly can help to decrease the amount of loose hairs that become ingested.

– Stress relief: Many cats overgroom due to stress. Finding ways to alleviate your cat’s stress levels and expending their energy in other ways, like playing, can help decrease the amount of hair that gets ingested.

– Hairball remedies: Many different types of over-the-counter hairball remedies are available. These come in different forms, such as crunchy treats, gels, and drops. All hairball remedies help by increasing fiber intake, which can aid in gastrointestinal motility and digestion. My favorite are Wellnergy Pets Hairball Control supplements! The Omega fatty acids improve cat’s coat health, the natural fiber from psyllium husk improves your cat’s digestive health, and the added cranberry also helps to promote cat’s urinary tract health!

In more serious or chronic cases, it’s best to visit your veterinarian for further recommendations. It’s also a great idea to record a video of your kitty while he or she is showing symptoms so your veterinarian can see everything in action! Is your cat suffering from hairballs?
