The commonly used tanker aluminum plates on the market are generally within 12.5 meters in length, less than 2.2 meters in width, and generally 5, 6, 7, 8 mm in thickness. A complete tank body generally needs 4-6 aluminum plates to be welded, the most important of which is the can body is made of 5083 oil tanker aluminum plate, and the can lids on both sides are made of 5083 oil tanker aluminum plate, which is softer in O state, and the can lid needs to be bent, and the partition part is also in 5083 O. In addition, some manufacturers use 5454 H111 aluminum plates to produce tanks.
The aluminum plates suitable for tank car bodies are mainly 5 series and 6 series related products. The 5 series is an aluminum alloy with magnesium as the main alloying element, and the 6 series is an aluminum alloy with magnesium and silicon as the main alloying elements and Mg 2Si phase as the strengthening phase. The main alloy brands include: 5052 aluminum plate, 5083 aluminum plate, 5754 aluminum plate, 6061 aluminum plate and 6082 aluminum plate.
5052 aluminum plate is AL-Mg series alloy aluminum plate, which is the most widely used anti-rust aluminum with high strength and corrosion resistance. However, it cannot be strengthened by heat treatment. The plasticity is still good during semi-cold work hardening, and the plasticity is low during cold work hardening and can be polished.
The 5083 oil tanker aluminum plate has high strength, and the heat-treated alloy has good workability, corrosion resistance and welding performance. It is widely used in transportation vehicles, such as ships, airplanes, vehicles and pressure vessels (tank trucks, refrigerated trucks, refrigerated containers), etc.
5754 aluminum plate has the characteristics of medium strength, good corrosion resistance, weldability and easy processing and forming. It is a typical alloy in the Al-Mg series alloy. In foreign countries, 5754 aluminum alloy sheets with different heat treatment conditions are the main materials used in the automobile manufacturing industry (car doors, molds, seals) and canning industries.
6061 aluminum plate has medium strength, good corrosion resistance, weldability, good workability, and can be anodized and colored. Because it contains a small amount of Cu, the strength is higher than 6063, and the quenching sensitivity is higher than 6063. Wind quenching cannot be achieved after extrusion, and re-solution treatment and quenching aging are required.
6082 aluminum plate is an aluminum alloy plate that can be strengthened by heat treatment. It has medium strength, good welding performance and corrosion resistance. It is mainly used in transportation and structural engineering industries.
