There are generally two ways to reduce the weight of the tank body: one is to start from the structural design, and the other is to start from the material, by replacing the existing steel with the lightweight material or modern composite materials to achieve the lightweight of the tank body.
Currently, large tank trucks are undergoing a transition from steel to aluminum. At present, aluminum tank trucks or all-aluminum tank trucks account for an increasing proportion in the market, and are enthusiastically sought after by the public.
The 5083 ultra-wide aluminum plate is the main alloy material for aluminum tank trucks. 5083 ultra-wide aluminum plate is widely used in the body part of fuel tankers, because tanker trucks are generally longer, with a length of 4-12.5 meters.
The best 5083 aluminum plate has high strength and high toughness. Compared with traditional steel, 5083 aluminum alloy has higher strength and good toughness. It can maintain the integrity and stability of the car body while withstanding high pressure and impact, and improve transportation safety.
The 5083 aluminum plate can store liquid materials very well. The 5083 aluminum plate itself has very good anti-corrosion properties, which can prevent the tank from being easily rusted and corroded due to the storage of liquid materials, and can very well extend the service life of the tanker truck.
5083 aluminum alloy has good weldability and can be welded by common welding methods, such as TIG welding, MIG welding and arc welding. The joint strength and sealing performance after welding are very good.
5083 aluminum plate suitable for oil tankers and other chemical transport vehicles have the characteristics of large size, medium strength, high quality surface, high formability, good corrosion resistance and welding performance, and high recycling value. The toughness and strength of 5083-H321 aluminum alloy will increase at low temperatures, making it very suitable for use in liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage tanks on transport ships.
