The aluminum plates suitable for tank truck are mainly 5 series and 6 series aluminum sheets. 5000 aluminum alloy is an aluminum alloy with magnesium as the main alloying element, the 6000 aluminum alloy is an aluminum alloy with magnesium and silicon as the main alloying element and the Mg 2 Si phase as the strengthening phase.

The proper aluminum sheets for tank bodies of oil tankers and other chemical transport vehicles are 5083 aluminum tooling plate, featuring large size, medium strength, high-quality surface, high formability, and has good corrosion resistance and welding performance, and recyclability.

Oil tanks for transporting aviation gasoline and jet kerosene must be welded with aluminum alloy, because even if stainless steel tanks are used, a very small amount of iron will enter the oil, which is not allowed. The cross-section of the cylinder is a circular arc rectangle, which is based on the consideration of lowering the center of gravity of the vehicle and increasing the cross-sectional area within the range of vehicle dimensions. According to GB 18564, it is welded with 5083 alloy, and the thickness of the plate is 5mm~6mm.

5083 aluminum alloy for ultra-low temperature has low density, high specific strength, good plasticity, corrosion resistance and processability, and no low temperature brittleness, so it has become a material widely used in the manufacture of low temperature storage tanks. In particular, Al 5083 h321 has improved toughness and strength at low temperatures, and is very suitable for use in storage tanks for liquefied natural gas (LNG) in transport ships.

Japan also used a large number of 5083 aluminum alloys in the manufacture of LNG ships and LNG storage tanks in the last century. Among them, there are LNG storage tanks whose main wall structure is entirely 5083 aluminum alloy. This aluminum alloy is also known for its unique fire resistance and corrosion resistance. Due to its advantages in safety, cleanliness and economy, it has become an important material for the top structure of cryogenic storage tanks.

The strength of 5083 aluminum at low temperature is higher than that at normal temperature. It is an ideal material under low temperature conditions. Therefore, after using aluminum reticulated shell and roof plate, the additional insulation materials and costs for preventing low temperature brittleness of the material can be saved during the entire service life.

Haomei Aluminum strictly controls the production process of 5083 aluminum plate. Through the determination of alloy composition, optimization of melting and casting process, homogenization heat treatment and rolling process test, the product performance reaches an ideal state.
