Specific application of Chalco 6061 tanker aluminum tube for oil tanker
Oil tanker pipeline
6061 aluminum tube can be used to make the pipeline system of the tank truck, including the connection pipeline between the oil tank and the fuel pump, the pipeline of the oil inlet and the oil outlet, etc. Because the 6061 aluminum tube has good corrosion resistance and sealing performance, it can withstand the pressure and corrosion during the transportation and storage of oil products.
Tank trucks need to have sufficient structural strength and stability to withstand vibration and external impact during transportation. Due to its high strength, 6061 aluminum tube can be used to make structural support components of tank trucks, such as frame, beams and support rods, to increase the stability and safety of the whole vehicle.
Top walkway guardrail, ladder
6061 aluminum tube can be used in combination in the top walkway guardrail and ladder structure. As a guardrail frame and handrail material, its high strength and corrosion resistance ensure stability and safety, while its lightweight properties reduce weight for easy installation and maintenance. When used to make ladders and handrails, aluminum tubes provide a stable climbing channel and are suitable for outdoor wet environments.
Oil tanker need to be equipped with explosion-proof devices to ensure that no explosion accidents occur during transportation and refueling. 6061 aluminum pipe tube has good processing performance, and can produce pipes and connectors that meet explosion-proof requirements to ensure the safe operation of tank trucks.
Precautions for purchasing 6061 tanker aluminum tube for oil tanker
Material certification: ensure that the purchased 6061 aluminum tube meets the relevant material standards and certification requirements. The quality and performance of aluminum pipes can be verified by relevant certifications, such as ASTM, ISO, etc.
Dimensions: according to the design and requirements of the tanker, select the appropriate size. This includes parameters such as outer diameter, wall thickness and length to ensure that the aluminum tube purchased will meet the requirements of the actual application.
Surface treatment: according to the need, find out whether the aluminum tube needs specific surface treatment, such as anodizing, spraying, etc., to increase its corrosion resistance and surface aesthetics.
Supplier reputation: supplier reputation and service quality are also factors you need to consider. Chalco Aluminum is a supplier with a good reputation and perfect after-sales service to ensure your purchasing experience is pleasant and smooth.
Check the quality: before buying, check the quality of the aluminum tube, including appearance, surface smoothness and no obvious blemishes or damages, etc. When necessary, the supplier may be required to provide relevant quality certificates or test reports.
Negotiate delivery time: the production and repair of tank trucks is usually time-sensitive, so negotiate with suppliers to ensure timely delivery to avoid inconvenience caused by delays or production interruptions.
Packaging and shipping: Chalco Aluminum has fully considered the packaging and shipping methods of 6061 aluminum tubes to ensure that they will not be damaged during shipping.
