According to the relevant research report of the European Aluminum Association, for every 1T lighter, 0.6L of gasoline can be saved for every 10KM. If an aluminum alloy fuel tank truck can reduce its own weight by 5T compared to steel tanks, it can save at least 1800L of fuel per year based on 12000KM and half of the empty mileage, which can save 9720 yuan/year....

Aluminum fuel tanker trailer can carry effective load and increase economy
According to the latest road safety law issued by China, the total weight of vehicles and goods shall not exceed 55T. In order to achieve better economic benefits, it is especially urgent to reduce the weight of vehicles and increase the effective carrying capacity. If the aluminum alloy tank can add 5T of cargo, it will be calculated at 120,000KM per year, and the transportation cost will be RMB 0.5/KM.T, which can add an additional RMB 150,000/year, and the economic benefits are very considerable.
Aluminum fuel tanker trailer has high recycling value
Because aluminum alloy has high corrosion resistance, after the can is forced to scrap, the aluminum alloy can body is not greatly damaged, and the recovery value of the can body is more than 85% of the original aluminum. In other words, if a tank body uses 5T aluminum, it will cost at least 80,000 yuan to scrap the tank body.
Aluminum fuel tanker trailer has long product life and low maintenance cost
Aluminum alloy has the advantage of good corrosion resistance, which is more obvious in tanks that mainly transport effective and strong corrosive items. Therefore, the direct benefit to customers is that the service life of aluminum alloy tanks is greatly extended compared to steel tanks. According to the experience of Europe and North America, the life cycle of an aluminum alloy tank is generally 15-20 years, while the life of a steel tank is only 7-9 years.
At the same time, because the aluminum alloy has good corrosion resistance, the aluminum alloy tank body can maintain a bright and beautiful surface, and the surface is more beautiful; and it does not require any coating or surface treatment, and the cleaning is very easy, so the maintenance cost of the aluminum alloy tank truck is quite small.
Good electrical conductivity and energy absorption performance of aluminum alloy tanker
When the tanker collides, because the aluminum alloy has good electrical conductivity, very little static electricity is collected on the tank body, so no sparks will be generated, and no accidents such as explosion will occur. At the same time, the aluminum alloy can well absorb the instantaneous energy generated by the tank body when it is pushed or rolled over, will not cause the tank body to crack, oil and other items leakage, and will not directly cause explosion and environmental pollution. In addition, since the weight of the tank body is greatly reduced, the center of gravity of the tank truck is correspondingly reduced, thereby reducing the possibility of the tank truck turning over and improving its driving performance.
No special processing technology
As the third most abundant element in the earth's crust, aluminum has very abundant reserves (8.23%). Aluminum alloy is also the second most widely used metal besides steel, and the processing technology is very mature. MIG, TIG, resistance welding, FSW and other welding methods can all be used to weld aluminum alloys. At the same time, aluminum alloy can also be bent, stamped and deep-drawn.
From the perspective of environmental and social benefits, global environmental warming has become a hot spot for everyone, and the main reason is that the greenhouse gas CO2 emissions are relatively high. According to the European Aluminum Association research report, every use of 1KG of aluminum alloy can reduce CO2 emissions by 28KG.
In other words, if the aluminum alloy tank body is used to reduce the weight by 5T, the CO2 emission can be reduced by 140T in total, the environment will be greatly improved, and the social benefits will be obvious. Therefore, aluminum alloy has incomparable advantages in terms of economic benefits, safety, environmental and social benefits.
