The tanker is used to transport gasoline, crude oil, various viscous oils, vegetable oil, liquid ammonia, wine, water, various acid and alkali liquids. The raw material can be stainless steel or aluminum alloy.However, for the same capacity tanker, the aluminum alloy tanker is lighter in weight, which can reduce tire wear and fuel consumption, thereby reducing the operation and maintenance cost of the tanker.
Why Aluminum Alloy Is Suitable For Oil Tank Truck？
Light Weight: The density of aluminum is less than that of steel, so an aluminum tanker with the same capacity will weigh 20%-40% less than a steel tanker. Therefore, the same weight tanker can transport more oil.
Strong Corrosion Resistance: The density of aluminum is less than that of steel, so an aluminum tanker with the same capacity will weigh 20%-40% less than a steel tanker. Therefore, the same weight tanker can transport more oil. The service life of aluminum alloy tanker can reach 15-20 years.
Good Ductility: The tank body is made of aluminum plate with good elongation and high strength. Oil products are flammable and explosive dangerous goods, so safety is an important indicator for tanker trucks. Petroleum products are prone to thermal expansion and contraction under extremely cold or hot conditions, and the use of aluminum alloy tanks greatly improves safety.
Aluminum Sheet For Oil Tank Truck
Commonly used aluminum plates for tanker trucks are generally less than 12.5 meters in length and less than 2.2 meters in width. The common thickness is generally 5, 6, 7, 8mm. A complete tank body generally requires 4-6 aluminum plates.
The tank body is made of 5083H111 aluminum plate, and the lid needs to be bent on both sides. Use 5083-O aluminum plate, O type is softer, and the spacer (wave-proof plate) is 5083-O type. In addition, there are some manufacturers who use 5454H111 aluminum plate to produce cans.
Lomi aluminium supplies raw materials of aluminum sheet for tanker trucks such as 5083, 5052, 5754, 5454 and 5182.
