The Danger of Asbestos Material in Brake Linings

Before the severe facts about asbestos revealed, asbestos was a material with numerous benefit. This material is known as the best insulator and fire resistant material.

The feature of asbestos is very helpful in making various kinds of goods such as insulation in shipbuilding, construction, boilers, brake lining, and also as an ingredient in reinforcing concrete, insulating fireproof boards, wallboard, floor tiles and coverings, ceiling tiles, and a gas mask, lift, and machinery.

The Danger of Asbestos Material in Brake Linings

But, even though asbestos has several useful advantages, asbestos is very dangerous and deadly to human health.

That is why asbestos is banned in many countries now. Asbestos is capable of causing various health problems to human’s organ, particularly our lungs.

Asbestos-related diseases often attack the lungs of victims because the victims who live, or work, in an environment of heavy exposure to asbestos, inhale air containing the dangerous fibers.

As we mention earlier, asbestos used in various commercial products, one of that many products is brake lining. Car and motorcycle use a brake and when you are going to dismantle the brake, be careful with the dust from the brake’s dirt.

It’s because it contains asbestos material. It’s dangerous to inhale the asbestos particles, because it will lead to some asbestos-related diseases, such as lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma.

Mechanics, garage owners, and people who live around the garage are people who are at high risk of asbestos exposure from the brake lining.

It’s because when a mechanic cleans up or unpacking the brake with a compressor, that’s when the dust from the brake go airborne. The dust which goes airborne will easily inhale by people who live in the area.

Then, the deadly diseases start to develop in our body such as mentioned before. One of the deadly diseases is Mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is a type of cancer which is malignant and rare.

Mesothelioma cancer affects the mesothelium lining in the body which is a thin protective membrane that covers the lungs, heart and other organs in the body. The disease is most often caused by the asbestos fibers exposure.

Next disease is Asbestosis. Asbestosis is a breathing disorder caused by inhaling asbestos fibers. Long-term accumulation of these fibers in the lungs can scars the lung tissue then we will experience shortness of breath as the impact of fibers inhalation.

Asbestosis symptoms can range from mild to severe, and usually do not appear until many years after exposure.

Here’s some information about the dangers of asbestos material in brake lining. For more information you can visit this website. I hope it can give you some useful insight, Thank you.

Recognizing the Important Parts of a Motorcycle

Motorcycle consist of numerous different parts. Acknowledging the crucial part of a motorcycle is important.

1. Plug

plug motorcycle

A plug is a very important component of a vehicle without this part, and a motorcycle will not able to walk.

A plug is a static component that has a function to spark a high voltage flames electricity which comes from the coil in into the combustion chamber. The process makes the combustion chamber gas occurred.

2. Carburetor

Carburetor

The function of the carburetor is to regulate the air and fuel into the suction channel then move to a cylinder.

Carburetor also has the capacity to set ratio between fuel and air and to mix the fuel and air uniformly. (Used in old motor output).

3. The Injector

The Injector

The injector itself of its usefulness that is similar to pilot jet and main jet that spray fuel into the combustion chamber.

The injector performance was helped by the ECU (Engine Control Unit), which govern the level of a fuel injector.

In simple terms, the function of the injector is to inject fuel into the combustion chamber by changing the particles into a mist.

The injector is not siphoned gasoline by itself, but the gas flow to the injectors, due to the pressure of the fuel pump. So if there is no fuel pump injector, it will not work optimally.

4. Systems Engineering

Consists of :

a. Engine power system. As a source of propulsion for the drive, consisting of parts:

  • Machine / engine
  • The fuel system
  • Lubrication Systems
  • The exhaust system
  • Cooling System

b. Driving transmission system is a series of transmission and engine power to the rear wheels, comprising:

  • The clutch mechanism
  • Mechanism gear
  • Transmission
  • Mechanisms starter

5. Electrical System

The workings of the electricity used to generate power for the combustion engine work processes and signals to support the security drive.

So all components that are directly related to electrical energy are grouped into electrical parts.

Electrical parts are divided into:

  • Group ignition
  • Group charging
  • Group of the load

Order / Chassis

Consists of several components to support that motorcycles can run and turn. Its components are:

  • Frame
  • The steering group
  • Group of suspension
  • Wheel Group
  • Brake Group
  • The fuel tank
  • Seat
  • Fender

Top 3 Best 600cc Motorcycles – Comparison and Specification

There are a lot of motorcycles brand that manufactured 600 cc motorcycles. They are Yamaha, Honda, Kawasaki, and Suzuki. They produced the best 600cc motorcycles.

The Danger of Used Oil

Based on Oil Waste Category B3, used oil is a corrosive, flammable, explosive, reactive, toxic material that can cause infection, irritation, and mutagenic.

The government has released a regulation of the B3 waste, but the rule is only applied in the industry sector. Whereas we can find the B3 waste pollution easily and not only in the industrial region.

The Danger of Used Oil

We can get the B3 waste pollution from the machine shop or motorcycle exhaust or even from the household waste. Where the material from some of that area will spread widely through soil, water, air, and food.

The cesspit will get into our body through our skin, our digestive organs, or even from our respiratory organs, etc.

Oil waste will make the soil turning into poor and barren condition. It’s also not soluble in water so it can harm the water habitat.

A liter of used oil can damage millions liter of water supply. You can imagine how dangerous oil waste is.

In line with the changing times, the amount of used oil will continue to grow along with the number of motor vehicles and machine production.

We can even find a small garage workshop which used oil waste and unfortunately, they often throw away the used oil in their environment. How dangerous this behavior to our environment.

It’s better that our local government cooperate with the people in the surrounding environment to make outreach to the community. It’s to prevent people to carelessly dispose of the B3 waste, not in the right landfill.

Many states now have developed a special place for the recycling of used oil as feedstock for the manufacture of liquid fuels.

It has also been developed in Indonesia by some students. The results of the recycling process are it can help save some money and also reduce pollution to our environment.

If you can’t process the used oil to become a raw material to be used in manufacture, then you can start with a very simple way.

You only need to collect used oil and put in sealed containers. Do not use the used oil for other things rather as liquid fuels.

You can then collect the oil and give it to the recycling of used oil to be immediately handled and make the material safer for the environment.
