Oil tank car is specially used for transporting the oil. Recent years, there are more and more company utilize aluminium alloy sheets for oil tank car manufacturing. Aluminium alloy tank car is a trend in the market. For example, there are about 5000 aluminium oil tank cars manufactured in USA per year. And in Europe, whether for the oil tank cars or powder tank cars, most of them utilize aluminium alloy sheets for tank body production. It means that the aluminium alloy oil tank cars is more and more popular all over the world. For your tank car making company, Wanda can offer you different aluminium alloys for you to choose.
Benefits of using aluminium alloy for tank body making
For realizing the lightweight development, you can use the aluminium alloy for tank body making. The weight of tank body takes large part of the the whole tank car. Utilizing aluminium alloy sheets instead of the carbon steel, highly decreases the tank car weight. And it also improves the cruising ability of car. At the same time, because of the light weight of aluminium tank car, it means that the tank can load more oil when full loading. For your reference, it can load about more than 2 tons oil than carbon steel tank car. Thus, using the aluminium tank can make more money than carbon steel tank car.
Except for these, the aluminium tank body can make sure the high quality of oil products. There are aluminium oxide on the surface of aluminium. It promise that the tank body rustless. And the oil will keep its quality when transporting. While, if you do not use carbon steel tank cars for a long time, the inner side of tank body will be rust. This is bad for the oil quality.
What aluminum alloy sheets you can use for your oil tank manufacturing company?
Generally, manufacturing a tank body needs about four or six aluminum plates for welding. Its tank body is mainly consisted by hoarding, swash plate and so on. Most of tank manufacturers utilize 12500mm long aluminium for manufacturing. And the width is under 2200mm. The commonly used thickness is 5mm, 6mm 7mm or 8mm.
The most important part is the tank body. You can apply the 5083 h111 for manufacturing. And the 5454 h111 aluminium plates are applicable. Besides, our 5182 aluminium can also be used for manufacturing. 5083 O aluminum is softer than other 5083 h111 aluminium. You can use it for swash plate making.
5083 aluminium sheet for tank making: 5083 aluminum has high strength and it’s hard. Meanwhile, for your tank body making, the good weldability makes your welding process easy.
5182 aluminum alloy plate for tank: Making oil tank car, it need good plasticity and weldability. The 5182 aluminum can meet your needs.
5454 tank used aluminium sheet: 5454 is a typical kind of anti-rust aluminium alloy sheets. And its strength is higher 5052. At the same time, the excellent corrosion resistance makes it good reputation for tank making.
How does Wanda Pack the Tank Used Aluminium Sheet and Coil Products?
Purchasing aluminium sheets and aluminum coil rolls from Wanda, you do not need to worry about the goods’ quality. Generally, we choose shipping for transporting. There may be some cracks. While, choosing Wanda Aluminium, there will be no problems during the transportation. Because we apply high configured packing materials for making sure the steadiness, flatness and good surface.
