Misunderstanding of Aluminum Tanker Trailers
In our traditional point of view, aluminum alloy is relatively light, but relatively soft and has low strength. As a matter of fact, it is a misconception. The application of aluminum alloy in vehicles began more than 100 years ago. As early as 1903, the Wright brothers used aluminum alloy on the engine of very first aircraft they invented. It is also used on space shuttles, ships, cars, trains and other vehicles.
Benefits of Aluminum Tanker Trailers
The density of aluminum is very low at only 2.7g/cm3, and the same volume aluminum alloy is only one third of the weight of steel. The application of aluminum alloy in tanker trailer has tremendously reduced the weight of an entire trailer. For example, if a 45m tanker trailer is made of aluminum alloy, it will have reduced weight as much as 5 tons compared with the same trailer made of steel.
Strong Corrosion Resistance
When it comes to corrosion resistance, steel is incomparable to Aluminum alloy. Tanker trailers made of aluminum alloy can transport all kinds of liquid or chemicals without any protective coating on the inside of the tank. This is also why international petroleum giants such as BP and Shell make it mandatory to use aluminum alloy tanks to transport petroleum. Aluminum alloy tanks have great corrosion resistance, so as to ensure any product’s cleanliness.
High Recovery Value
Due to the high corrosion resistance of aluminum alloy, an aluminum tanker trailer’s body is usually not damaged much after trailer has been scrapped. The recovery value of the tank body is more than 85% of original value.
Long Product Life
Aluminum tanker trailer’s good corrosion resistance means low maintenance cost. This advantage has given Aluminum tanker trailer the edge when the transportation industry is dominated by transporting product that are high corrosive. Therefore, it has become a huge benefit to customers that the service life of Aluminum tanker trailers is a lot longer than steel tankers. According to surveys performed in Europe and North America, the life cycle of an Aluminum tanker trailer is generally 15 to 20 years, while it’s only 7 to 9 years for a steel tanker trailer. Furthermore, thanks to its good corrosion resistance, it’s easy to keep the body of an Aluminum tanker trailer nice and bright all the time, and the cost of repair and maintenance is very low.
