Advantages of aluminum plates for tankers

According to the relevant research report of the European Aluminum Research Association, for every 1t lighter, 0.6L gasoline can be saved for every 100km. If an aluminum alloy oil tanker is 5t lighter than similar steel tankers. Calculated at 120,000 km per year, half of the no-load mileage can save at least 1800L of fuel, which can save 9,720 yuan per year. The economic benefits brought by the light weight of the aluminum alloy tanker are very prominent.


Advantages of aluminum plates for tankers

1. The aluminum plate of the tanker is light in weight. The tanker aluminum plate is only 2.71g/cm3, and the same volume of aluminum alloy is almost only 1/3 of the weight of steel. The application of aluminum alloy on the tanker greatly reduces its own weight.

2. The tanker aluminum plate has strong corrosion resistance. Aluminum alloy has incomparable corrosion resistance than steel. The tank is made of aluminum alloy, and all kinds of liquids or liquefied gas can be transported without any protective layer inside. Because the aluminum alloy tank has good corrosion resistance, it can ensure cleaner oil.

3. The recovery value of aluminum plate of tanker is high. The aluminum plate has strong corrosion resistance. After the can is forced to be scrapped, the aluminum alloy can has no major damage and can be recycled and reused.

3. Good electrical conductivity and energy absorption performance of the tanker aluminum plate, making it safer. When the tanker collides, because the aluminum alloy has good electrical conductivity, very little static electricity is collected on the tank body, so no sparks will be generated, thereby reducing the occurrence of accidents such as explosions.

A tanker is a tank-shaped transportation vehicle used to carry various liquids, liquefied gases and powdered goods. The aluminum alloy tanker body is composed of a hoarding, a wave breaker, and a tank mouth.

Commonly used tanker aluminum plates in the market are generally within 12.5 meters in length, less than 2.2 meters in width, and common thicknesses are generally 5, 6, 7, and 8mm. A complete tank body generally requires 4-6 aluminum plates to be welded.

The 5083H111 aluminum plate is used for the can body, and the lids on both sides need to be bent. The 5083-O state aluminum plate is used. The O state is softer, and the partition (anti-wave plate) is in the 5083-O state.

We supply raw materials for the production of aluminum plates for tank cars, such as 5083, 5052, 5754, 5454, 5182, etc.
