Tank truck aluminum sheet

Tank truck aluminum sheet is not a specified aluminum sheet plate, but refers to the aluminum sheet used for the manufacture of tank truck. Common alloys include 5083, 5182, 5454, 5754, etc.

The body of a tank truck is composed of coamings, anti-wave plates, tank mouths and other parts. Currently, the commonly used tank materials on the market include carbon steel, stainless steel, and aluminum alloy materials. With the development of lightweight, aluminum strip steel has become a craze. , the proportion of aluminum alloys in tank trucks is getting higher and higher.

The fuel tanker truck is used for the transportation of gasoline, crude oil, various viscos oils, vegetable oils, liquid ammonia, wine, water, various acid-base liquids.

The advantage of aluminum alloy over carbon steel is that it has stronger corrosion resistance and a higher strength-to-weight ratio.

Common alloys for tank truck aluminum sheets

5083 tank truck aluminum sheet

5083 aluminum belongs to the Al-Mg series alloy. The main alloy element is magnesium. It is a promising alloy among the 5 series. It has good corrosion resistance, excellent weldability, good cold workability, and medium strength. It is widely used in the manufacture of aircraft fuel tanks, oil pipes, and sheet metal parts of transportation vehicles and ships, tank trucks, instruments, street lamp brackets and rivets, and hardware products. , electrical casing, etc.

The length of tank truck aluminum sheets is generally less than 12.5 meters, the width is less than 2.2 meters, and the thickness is generally 5, 6, 7, 8mm. A complete tank truck body generally requires 4-6 pieces of aluminum sheets welded together, among which the important tank body is made of 5083H111 aluminum sheet, the can lids on both sides are made of 5083-O aluminum sheets, the O temper is softer, and the can lids need to be bent, and the partition part is also made of 5083-O-state.

5182 tank truck aluminum sheet

5182 aluminum sheet is an aluminum alloy material with excellent processing performance and plasticity. It has high strength and hardness, good fatigue resistance and corrosion resistance, and good thermal conductivity. These characteristics make 5182 aluminum sheet widely used in the fields of automobile heat insulation panels and tank car bodies. Has a wide range of applications.

5454 tank truck aluminum sheet

5454 aluminum sheet is one of the advantageous products of Warwick Aluminum. The company can produce all products in O and H states, with a thickness range of 0.15-600mm, a width range of 20-2650mm, and a length range of 500-16000mm, to meet the diverse needs of different customers. Moreover, the processing technology is mature, the strength is high, and the product quality meets various international standards.

5454 aluminum sheet is a typical rust-proof aluminum and has high strength, about 20% higher than 5052 aluminum sheet.

Advantages of 5454 aluminum sheet plate for tank trucks

  • 1. The aluminum sheet plate of the tank truck is light in weight. The aluminum plate of the tank truck is only 2.71g/cm3, and the aluminum alloy of the same volume is almost only 1/3 of the weight of steel. The application of aluminum alloy on tank trucks greatly reduces its weight.
  • 2. The aluminum sheet of the tank truck has strong corrosion resistance. Aluminum alloy has incomparable corrosion resistance than steel. Tanks made of aluminum alloy can transport various liquids or liquefied gases without any protective layer on the inside. Because the aluminum alloy tank has good corrosion resistance, it ensures cleaner oil.
  • 3. The recycling value of tank truck aluminum sheets is high. Aluminum plates have strong corrosion resistance. After the cans are forced to be scrapped, the aluminum alloy cans are not seriously damaged and can be recycled and reused.
  • 3. 5454 tank truck aluminum plate has good electrical conductivity and energy absorption performance, making it safer. When a tanker collides, because aluminum alloy has good electrical conductivity, very little static electricity accumulates on the tank, so sparks will not be generated, thereby reducing the occurrence of accidents such as explosions.

5754 tank truck aluminum plate

5754 aluminum alloy belongs to AL-MG rust-proof aluminum. It has the characteristics of medium strength, good corrosion resistance, weldability and easy processing and forming. It is a typical alloy among Al-Mg series alloys. Abroad, 5754 in different heat treatment states is the main material used in the automobile manufacturing industry (car doors, molds, seals), canning industry, welded structures, storage tanks, pressure vessels, trains, ship structures and offshore facilities, and transportation tanks. And used in situations requiring excellent processing performance, excellent corrosion resistance, high fatigue strength, high weldability and medium static strength.

Performance advantages of 5754 tank truck aluminum sheet

  • 1. Good elongation, high strength, good compatibility with gasoline and diesel, etc., which can avoid high-quality pollution.
  • 2. Corrosion-resistant, no anti-corrosion surface metal treatment is required, even if the car body is scratched, it will not rust.
  • 3. It has a long service life. Old aluminum alloy tanks that are well maintained can still be used on new chassis. Even if the tank is scrapped, it has a high recycling value.

Why Choose Aluminum Alloy Tank Truck

Aluminum alloy tank trucks can not only significantly reduce the weight of the vehicle and improve transportation efficiency, but also have a long service life and are more environmentally friendly and safer. Throughout the entire life cycle, aluminum alloy tank trucks create higher overall profits than traditional carbon steel tank trucks.

The 5000 series aluminum alloy (Al-Mg)  has strong corrosion resistance and can effectively resist corrosion from fuel, liquid chemicals and other items, thus extending the service life of the tanker tank.
