Turkey 5454 O/H111/H32 Aluminum plate for fuel tank truck

Currently, the prevalent materials for oil tanker trucks encompass carbon steel and aluminum alloy. For tankers under 10 tons, carbon steel is a viable choice as they are primarily used for mobile refueling and do not traverse highways, thus evading overweight concerns. Conversely, tankers exceeding 10 tons predominantly employ aluminum alloy, which notably lessens vehicle weight, enhances transportation efficiency, boasts longer durability, and is more eco-friendly and secure. The comprehensive profitability of aluminum alloy tankers surpasses traditional carbon steel models. Standard aluminum plates for tankers are typically under 12.5 meters in length, less than 2.2 meters in width, and commonly range from 5 to 8mm in thickness. A comprehensive tanker body necessitates the welding of 4 to 6 aluminum plates.

Typically, the tanker’s body construction utilizes 5454 aluminum plate or 5083 aluminum plate. The O temper variety is renowned for its pliability, making it a prime choice for the partition (wave-resistant plate) section, specifically crafted from 5083-O aluminum plate. Mingtai Aluminum prides itself in its 5454 aluminum plate, a product that exemplifies expert craftsmanship, superior quality, and resilience in harsh, corrosive environments. Furthermore, 5083 aluminum sheet stands out as a rust-resistant aluminum with exceptional strength, surpassing 5052 aluminum plate by approximately 20% in this aspect.

The 5454 aluminum plate boasts a magnesium content ranging from 2.4% to 3.0%, along with a minor proportion of silicon, copper, zinc, and manganese. Its tensile strength surpasses 215MPa, exceeding the strength of 5052 aluminum plate by approximately 20%. Its characteristics align closely with the 5154 variant, yet in adverse conditions, the 5454 aluminum plate demonstrates superior corrosion resistance. Owing to its remarkable ductility and high strength, the 5454 aluminum plate finds extensive application in fuel tanks, tanker bodies, marine facility pipelines, automotive wheels, and other domains, effectively reducing the weight of vehicles.

5454 aluminum plate has all tempers including O, H12, H14, etc. In terms of performance, it not only has high strength and high corrosion resistance, but also has good plasticity and good molding processability. 5454 aluminum sheet can be heat treated in tempers such as O, H32, H34, etc., which can improve its strength and hardness. 5454 aluminum alloy has been heat treated in H32 temper, and its hardness can reach 70-1180HB.
