Introduction for forged aluminum alloy wheels for tanker trucks
Chalco has wheels of different specifications from 16 inches to 24.5 inches in diameter and from 5.25 inches to 17 inches in width, and keeps up with the development trend of the transportation industry.
Chalco forged aluminum alloy wheel is sourced from a single 6061-T6 high-strength aluminum alloy billet, which has good machinability, as well as high corrosion resistance. After the billet is forged by 12,000 giant forging equipment, the billet is forged into the shape of a wheel, and the aluminum alloy material becomes more precise, uniform and tough, which can greatly increase the strength and deformation resistance of the wheel.
Features of forged aluminum alloy wheels for tanker trucks
- Chalco's aluminum alloy wheels are forged, so the metal particles in the material are fibrous, making products of this type stronger, better dissipating heat, and reducing brake hub and tire overheating caused by braking. The aluminum material itself is lighter, half the weight of a steel wheel. Forged aluminum alloy wheels are also an energy-saving and carbon-reducing material. The data shows that the carbon emission of producing 1 ton of steel is 1700kg, while the carbon emission of producing 1 ton of aluminum is 1500kg. Based on the calculation of carbon emissions in the production process, the material carbon emissions of a 23kg aluminum rim can be reduced by 87.4kg compared to a 46kg iron rim.
- Chalco's aluminum alloy wheels are lighter, stronger, more economical, greener, and more aesthetically pleasing. The weight of each aluminum alloy wheel can be reduced by 57%, and the weight of each trailer or tanker can be reduced by up to 300kg on average. After the weight is reduced, the payload can be increased and the driving comfort can be improved. Forged aluminum alloy material, the strength is more than 4 times that of steel.
- In terms of economy, fuel consumption is correspondingly reduced by up to 7% due to the reduction in weight. Good heat dissipation and running stability reduce the wear of tires and brakes, reduce the tire blowout rate and prolong the service life. In addition, the aluminum material is 100% recyclable, which saves fuel due to weight reduction, thereby reducing carbon dioxide emissions, reflecting the environmental protection characteristics of Alcoa tires.
Applications of forged aluminum alloy wheels for tanker trucks
Forged aluminum alloy wheels have a wide market coverage and are suitable for heavy-duty trucks, medium-duty trucks, light trucks, semi-trailers, dangerous goods vehicles, tank vehicles, low-bed vehicles, military and police vehicles, armored vehicles, engineering vehicles, container vehicles, fire fighting vehicles, Trailers, special vehicles, long-distance buses, medium-sized buses, school buses, large passenger cars, RVs, and can also produce aircraft rims and train rims.
