XII. Why is aluminum alloy bulk cement tank trailer the mainstream product in the future?

Lightweight technology is the theme of the development of bulk cement tank trailer technology, with the increase of domestic control over, control limits, aluminum alloy bulk cement tank trailer in the domestic market on the rise.

1.Aluminum alloy powder tank truck has a broad development prospect

With the increasingly strict regulations on overloading, limiting, safety and environmental protection of modern logistics vehicles, "lightweight" technology has become a hot issue in the special purpose vehicle industry at the present stage.

Domestic markets have set off a climax of demand for small cubic lightweight powder cement tank semi-trailer, but the high-strength steel powder cement tank semi-trailer has become the bottleneck of the current lightweight technology.

Aluminum alloy material has the characteristics of low density, high strength and corrosion resistance, etc. Aluminum alloy has become the preferred material for the application of lightweight technology of powder cement tank semi-trailer. Bulk cement transport semi-trailer whose main structure (tank body, frame) is made of aluminum alloy has emerged in the domestic market and is on the rise.

2.Advantages of aluminum alloy materials used in powder cement tank semi-trailer

1. The quality of the reconditioning is reduced

The density of aluminum alloy is only about 1/3 of the steel. The application of aluminum alloy material on the powder cement tank semi-trailer can greatly reduce the quality of the preparation of the powder cement tank semi-trailer.

Taking 38m³ horizontal powder cement tank semitrailer as an example, the main structure (tank, frame) and its accessories are high-strength steel structure of powder cement tank semitrailer with a ready mass of 6.15~6.5t, while the main structure (tank, frame) and its accessories are aluminum alloy structure of powder cement tank semitrailer with a ready mass of 5.0t. 38m³ aluminum alloy structure can be high strength steel structure horizontal powder tank semi-trailer with light weight of 1.2~1.5t.

2. High economic efficiency

The maximum gross weight of a six-axle semi-trailer shall not exceed 49t.

In order to obtain better economic benefits, it is particularly important to lighten the vehicle to increase the effective loading capacity.

According to the feedback of Chinese research users, the transportation cost of each ton of cement is about 50 yuan per 100 kilometers, and each ton of cement can earn about 100 yuan more per day. The transportation cost of each ton of cement for 100 kilometers is about 40 yuan, and every extra 1t of cement transported can earn about 140 yuan more per day.

According to the calculation of 300 days of operation per year (busier year), in the case that the weight of aluminum alloy powder cement tank semi-trailer is reduced by 1.5t, it can earn 45,000-63,000 yuan more per year.

3. Energy conservation and emission reduction

According to the research report of the European Aluminum Association, every 100kg vehicle weight reduced, 100km fuel consumption can be reduced by 0.6L, and every 1L fuel saved can reduce CO2 emissions by 2.3kg.

If an aluminum alloy horizontal powder cement tank semi-trailer loses 1.5t weight and travels 120,000 km annually, it can save 5400L fuel and reduce CO2 emission by 14.42t according to half of the no-load mileage calculation.

4. Corrosion resistance

Aluminum alloy contact with air, the surface will naturally form oxide film, has good corrosion resistance, so the aluminum alloy structure of powder cement tank semi-trailer can not be used as antirust paint coating on the surface.

Aluminum alloy powder cement tank semi-trailer can not only reduce the cost of paint coating, but also reduce the damage to the operator's body and the pollution to the environment.

5. High recovery value

Because of the high corrosion resistance of aluminum alloy, when the vehicle reaches the mandatory scrap life, there is no significant damage to the trailer body, and the recovery value of aluminum alloy high strength steel is high.

According to relevant data, the current price of scrap aluminum is about 11,000 /t, and the price of scrap iron is about 0.19 million /t. If a semi-trailer of aluminum alloy powder tank uses 2T aluminum alloy material, the recycling price of aluminum alloy material is 22,000 yuan.

At the same time, the semi-trailer of the same volume of high-strength steel powder tank uses 3.5T high-strength steel, and the recycling price of the steel is 66,500 yuan (at the same time, the corrosion resistance of the steel is poor, and the recycling price of the high-strength steel is lower than this value).
