A aluminum fuel tanker semi trailer, which is what we usually call a 40-ton tanker, actually can only pull about 33 tons of oil, because the weight of a semi-trailer tank is generally about 7 tons. The tank semi trailer is a tanker that connects the trailer part with the tractor. Compared with the ordinary single-body tank truck, the tanker semi trailercan effectively improve the transportation efficiency. In the case of the same tonnage, the transportation cost is reduced and the fuel consumption is saved.

Structure of Aluminum Fuel Tanker Semi Trailer

The aluminum fuel tanker trailer is divided into two parts, the oil tank part and the skeleton supporting the tank body or the traveling part. The rear part of the tanker trailer is roughly the same with 2 axles or 3 axle, which is selected according to different requirements along with the tractor head. Sometimes, the tanker trailer is called according to the brand of the tractor head. 

  • The tank body is made of 4mm or 6mm high-quality carbon steel produced by the steel company according to national standards. The shape is divided into oval or square round tanks, which usually hold 1 to 4 kinds of oil products. Heat preservation series tanks can also be produced.

  • Alcohol and chemical tankers are often made of stainless steel with a thickness of 4mm-5mm.

  • All kinds of hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, and lye tanks are often made of plastic with a thickness of 12mm to 22mm.

  • There are multiple anti-wave partitions inside the tank. The high-pressure gas leak test is always adopted to make sure the tank body have the characteristics of high strength, stable center of gravity, and safe and stable vehicle transportation.

  • Centrifugal pumps, gear pumps, and stainless steel pumps can be selected according to the purpose of the tanker, which have the characteristics of large flow rate and fast suction speed.

  • The goods transported by tanker trailers can be measured with single-count or double-count flowmeters, and can also be equipped with a tax-controlled computer fuel dispenser, 10 to 15 meter automatic telescopic return reel, and a fuel gun. Edible oil can be measured with an edible oil computer meter.



Nature of Aluminum Fuel Tanker Semi Trailer

  • Tanker trailers used to be made of only carbon steel, which was heavy and seriously overloaded and the recycling price was extremely low comparing to other materials that can be optioned nowadays. After the vehicles were scrapped, they could only be sold as scrap iron. The current trend of social development is aluminum alloy fuel tankers, which have excellent safety records in road accidents. Aluminum alloy fuel tankers have a low center of gravity so they are easy to brake. Thank are also safer thanks to their nature of non-flammable materials with no sparks, and lower accumulation of static electricity, which has little damage to the road surface. All the governments from different countries  has always hoped to reduce the maintenance cost of the road surface, and it can absorb the energy generated by the collision through deformation without sudden tearing.

  • The aluminum alloy fuel tanker semi trailer has lighter weight and higher effective load, which means fast return on investment. By reducing the weight of the vehicle body, the effective load is increased. Transporting the same amount of goods can reduce the number of shifts. Aluminum alloy fuel tankers have better fuel efficiency, lower carbon dioxide emissions, and are more environmentally friendly. They also have a longer service life and strong corrosion resistance. 15 to 20 years is the typical service life of aluminum alloy fuel tanker trailers and they look much nicer, too. Aluminum alloy fuel tanker trailer is corrosion-resistant and has low related maintenance costs. It is often not painted because of its durable appearance and is easy to clean. They usually have a high recycling value after being scrapped.



Features and Advantages of Aluminum Fuel Tanker Semi Trailer

Light Weight

Aluminum alloy material is well known as a light metal material. Compared with carbon steel and stainless steel, the weight of an aluminum alloy semi-trailer is 30% lighter. At present, the tare weight of the mainstream 50cbm carbon steel tank on the market is 11 tons including the tank body, axle, axle, and main frame, while the tare weight of the 50cbm aluminum alloy fuel tanker trailer can be less than 7 tons. According to the regulations that the weight of the semi-trailer with cargo does not exceed 49 tons, the cargo capacity of the aluminum alloy fuel tanker semi trailer is far greater than that of the carbon tanker steel semi trailer.

High Strength

Aluminum alloy is not only light in material, but also high in material strength. The tanker semi trailer has a large load capacity, which means requirements for the strength of the tank material is high. The aluminum alloy material can well meet this requirement. This establishes the status of aluminum alloy materials in the production of tanker trailers.


High Recycling Value

Aluminum alloy can be recycled with high recycling value. The aluminum alloy’s recycling value,  according to the current market price, reaches 20% of the entire aluminum alloy fuel tanker semi trailer. That is to say, when the vehicle reaches the mandatory scrapping point, the recycling value will virtually reduce the cost of buying a fuel tanker.

The Material Is Stable

The aluminum alloy is non-rusting. Regardless how servere the weather gets, the aluminum alloy does not need anti-rust treatment and will remain the same aluminum alloy after many years. However, after the surface paint of the carbon steel tank body falls off, what is exposed outside is no longer carbon steel, but rusty spots. Carbon steel tank needs maintenance all year round, which virtually increases operating costs.

Environmental Protection

The recycling of materials not only saves operating costs for car owners, but also protects the environment and is responsible for future generations.
