What is 5083 Aluminum Plate, and Why is it Used for Tank Trucks?

5083 aluminum plate is a high-strength and corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy. It is commonly used in the construction of tank trucks due to its ability to withstand corrosive environments and the chemicals typically encountered in the transportation of liquids and gases.

In tanker applications, 5083 aluminum alloy is usually used to manufacture oil tanks, chemical tanks, etc., because these tanks need to have high strength, high corrosion resistance and excellent welding performance to ensure that the tanks will not be damaged during transportation. There are problems such as cracking and leakage.

5083 aluminum alloy has excellent corrosion resistance and can resist the erosion of various acids, alkalis, salts and other chemical substances, so it can ensure that the tank body will not rust or corrode for a long time.

5083 Aluminum Plate for Tank Truck Applications

5083 aluminum alloy is mainly used in tank body, tank cover, tank bottom and other parts.

5083 Aluminum Plate for Tanker Body

5083 aluminum alloy is an aluminum alloy with good corrosion resistance and strength, which is often used to make the barrel of aluminum tank cars.

The Tanker Body is the main part of the tanker and also the container for transporting substances, which needs to have high strength and corrosion resistance. Due to its high strength and good corrosion resistance, 5083 aluminum alloy is usually used to manufacture tanks to ensure that the tanks will not crack or leak during transportation.

Alloy 5083 H111 5083 H32
Thickness 5~10 2~6
Tensile strength 305 MPa 275 MPa
Yield strength 215 MPa 125 MPa
Elongation at break 12% 16%
Hardness 95 HRB 68 HRB

Under normal circumstances, the cylinder body of the aluminum tank car adopts the H111 state of the 5083 aluminum alloy. In addition, the H32 state of 5083 aluminum alloy can also be used to manufacture the barrel of aluminum tanker.

5083 H32 aluminum plate for Tanker Body has lower strength and hardness than 5083 H111 aluminum plate for Tanker Body, and 5083 H32 aluminum plate for Tanker Body is suitable for occasions that bear less pressure and load.

Therefore, in general, the H111 state of 5083 aluminum alloy is more suitable for the manufacture of aluminum tank trucks.

5083 Aluminum for Tank Truck Application

5083 Aluminum Plate for Tanker Cover

The can lid is a part used to close the top of the tank body, which needs to have high strength and sealing performance. The high strength and excellent welding properties of 5083 aluminum alloy make it an ideal material choice for tank ends.

Tanker Cover Type Application
5083 H111 Aluminum General liquid transport tanker trucks (e.g. fuel tankers, cleaning tankers, water tankers, etc.)
5083 H116 Aluminum Special liquid transport tanker trucks with specific requirements (e.g. chemical tankers, hazardous material tankers, etc.)
5083 O Aluminum Liquid transport tanker trucks that do not require heavy loads and vibration resistance (e.g. food tankers, dairy tankers, etc.)

The H111 state, H116 state and O state of the 5083 aluminum alloy have the following differences :

5083 H111 Aluminum for Tanker Cover is relatively low in strength and hardness.

H116 state : It has high tensile strength and hardness, and is suitable for the manufacture of parts such as tank car lids that need to withstand heavy loads and vibrations. Compared with the H111 state, the 5083 aluminum alloy can lid in the H116 state is stronger and more durable.

O state : This is the softened state of 5083 aluminum alloy, which has high machinability and formability. However, compared with the H111 state and H116 state, the O state 5083 aluminum alloy tank cover has lower strength and hardness, and is suitable for some liquid transport tankers that do not need to bear heavy loads and vibrations.

Therefore, for the selection of the tank truck cover, it needs to be selected according to the specific application occasions and requirements, so as to meet the performance and quality requirements of the tank truck tank cover.

5083 Aluminum Plate for Tanker Bottom

The bottom of the tank is the bottom of the tank body of the tanker. It needs to have high strength and corrosion resistance to ensure that the tank body will not break or leak during transportation. 5083 aluminum alloy is usually used to make tank bottoms because of its high strength and excellent corrosion resistance.

The bottom of the tank truck is generally made of 5083 aluminum alloy, and the commonly used states are H111 and H32.

  • 5083 H111 Aluminum for Tanker Bottom has good machinability and formability, suitable for tank bottom applications with less stringent requirements.
  • 5083 H32 Aluminum for Tanker Bottom is the cold-rolled state of 5083 aluminum alloy, with high hardness and strength, suitable for more demanding tank bottom applications.

It is necessary to select the appropriate 5083 aluminum alloy state according to the specific application requirements and process conditions, and take appropriate measures during the processing to ensure the quality and performance of the tank bottom.
