Al 5754 5083 for Oil Tankers

Compared with steel, aluminum alloy tank trucks have the characteristics of low density, good corrosion resistance, easy welding, long life, easy recycling, reduced emissions, and no charge accumulation. Aluminum alloy tanks lead the lightweight trend in the tank truck industry and successfully subvert the design concept of traditional carbon steel tank trucks.

Al 5754 is a typical Al-Mg alloy, and its common states are 5754-H111 and 5754 H22. Other common tempers are H12, H14, H114, etc. 5754 aluminum alloy has good plasticity and is easy to cold form and weld. 5754 aluminum alloy has good welding performance and is suitable for various welding processes.

The magnesium content of 5754 aluminum plate is higher than that of 5052, so it has better machinability. The silicon content of 5754 aluminum plate is also higher than that of 5052. The silicon content affects the forging function and corrosion resistance of aluminum alloy, so 5754 aluminum plate has better forging function and corrosion resistance.

The price of 5754 aluminum plate is not low, but the magnesium alloy content of 5754 aluminum plate is relatively high, and it is superior to 5052 in strength and corrosion resistance. Therefore, 5754 aluminum plate cannot be replaced by 5052 aluminum plate in certain industries.

ASTM 5083 aluminum alloy is a high-strength, high-toughness aluminum alloywith good corrosion resistance and easy processing. It is a good choice for aluminum used in tank truck bodies. The tank body is made of 5083H111 aluminum plate. The tank heads on both sides need to be bent. They use 5083-O aluminum plate, which is softer in the O temper. The baffles also used 5083-O aluminum sheets.

A tank truck is usually made of 4-6 pieces of 5083 ultra-wide aluminum plates. Aluminum tank trucks are about 20% lighter than steel tank trucks of the same size, but the transportation volume can be increased by 30%. At the same time, due to the high strength, corrosion resistance and wear resistance of the 5083 alloy used in aluminum tank trucks, aluminum alloy tank trucks are more wear-resistant and durable, and have a long service life.
