5000 series aluminum alloy materials have good corrosion resistance and weldability. The tank made of aluminum alloy can transport various liquids or liquefied gas without any protective coating inside. Because of its good corrosion resistance, it ensures that the oil is cleaner, and the recovery value of the tank after forced scrapping is also higher. At the same time, because aluminum alloy has good electrical conductivity, static electricity is rarely accumulated on the tank, so it will not cause sparks and cause explosions. Moreover, the aluminum alloy can well absorb the instantaneous energy generated by the tank body when it collides, and will not cause the tank body to crack and cause leakage. Because the weight of the tank is greatly reduced, the center of gravity of the body is correspondingly lowered, thereby reducing the possibility of the tanker rolling over. This is also the reason why international oil giants such as BP and SHELL force the use of aluminum alloy tanks to transport oil.
5083, 5182 and other aluminum alloy sheet products suitable for tank trucks and other chemical transport vehicles have the characteristics of large size, medium strength, high quality surface, high formability, and good corrosion resistance and welding performance. and recyclability. It is not only safe and reliable, but also beneficial to environmental protection. In particular, the toughness and strength of 5083-H321 aluminum alloy will increase at low temperature, which is very suitable for use in liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage tanks of transport ships.
