Chemical Tanker

Acid tank trailers are used for the transportation of different kinds of acid, such as sulfuric acid, muriatic acid, hydrofluoric acid, nitric acid and acetic acid, which is used for different purposes of industry. Common chemical tankers include muriatic acid tanker and sulfuric acid tanker.

How to choose a chemical tanker trailer?

  • 1. Transporting materials: We generally use chemicals tank trailers to transport muriatic acid, sulfuric acid, hydrofluoric acid, nitric acid, and acetic acids, or other goods, we need first to determine whether the chemical You can tell us what you need to transport and we will give you our professional advice.
  • 2. Local laws and regulations: whether the local country has a weight limit, we can consider using some chemical tanker with smaller cargo or aluminum alloy if the country has a weight limit.
  • 3. Roads: How are the roads in your country? For many of you who are not experienced, if the road conditions in your country are not good, we need to make some adjustments to ensure that the chemical tanker trailer can work better.
  • 4. Long-term use: Some customers tell us during the communication that the work may only last for a short time, then we will relatively recommend the use of some more cost-effective configuration, if some need to be used for a long time, we will relatively recommend some better quality configuration, to ensure that the chemical tank semi-trailer service life longer.

How to choose a chemical tanker trailer manufacturer?

  • 1. Whether it is a factory or not: this is a very important criterion, there are many traders in China, but if we buy a four tanker trailer from a trader, it will cost us more, we suggest you choose to buy directly from the factory, PANDA Mech is a factory direct sales, there is no middleman to earn the price difference.
  • 2. Years of establishment: a company’s years of the establishment can side reflect the strength of the company, PANDA Mech has been established for more than 20 years, technology has been at the forefront of the world, every year will invest a lot of human and material resources in research and development to improve.

What’s the use of a chemical tanker?

A chemical tanker is commonly used in industry to transport different acids, chemicals, such as muriatic acid, sulfuric acid, hydrofluoric acid, nitric acid, and acetic acids. 

The texture of chemical tankers is different according to the acid transport. The standard surface includes stainless steel, carbon steel, and aluminum alloy. The chemical tank trailer is corrosive to the tank. Therefore some treatments on the tank shall be done.

Structure

Sulfuric acid and muriatic acid tankers are multi-layer structures. The external system is made of stainless steel and partly made of aluminum alloy. 

The lining structure of the tanker is made from polyethylene (PE) linings. They are made from different processes, but the shell and the PE lining inside are part of the complete Chemical Tank Truck. 

Nitric acid tankers and acetic acid tankers are made from aluminum without lining materials. Aluminum pots are the best containers to be filled with nitric acid because there is a piece of oxidation film on its surface, which has the inactivation to prevent the reflection of corrosion.

In addition, the weight of aluminum alloy is lower, which conforms with the standard in some countries.

 

Advantages

The inner and outer tank of PANDA Mech tanker is processed with fine anticorrosive paint, with the characteristics of seamless, no leakage, corrosion resistance, aging resistance, impact resistance, long life, and others, which are suitable for the storage and transportation of most acids and muriatic acid.

Operating temperature: -20℃ ~ 60℃. As for chemical tanker trailers, we use 5mm thick steel welded tankers and special designs such as ten reinforced rims to strengthen the chemical tanker truck. 

To improve the safe condition of the chemical truck trailer, we added a stainless emergency bottom value and a discharge valve on the bottom of the tanker, and the valves have the advantage of corrosion resistance, which can be used to lengthen the life of the chemical tank truck.

The tank of the chemical tanker trailer takes advanced butt welding technology after the tank model. Chemical semi-tanker shall take it with high-pressure gas leakage test, tanks of the batch must be tested, and tanks are featured with high strength, stable center of gravity, vehicle safety, and stability. 

PANDA Mech chemical tank truck trailer adopts internationally famous brand accessories, such as BPW, Fuwa, etc., with better quality and longer service life. 

PANDA Mech is experienced in producing chemical Tank trucks and can customize them according to the actual situation of customers. 

 

Inspection before the use of chemical tanker

  1. The safe system complies with operation requirements of vehicle braking, illumination, turn lights, and tire specifications qualified, wear normal, no use of refurbished tires. 
  2. They were allocated vehicle identification lights, signs, reflective signs and the protective device of rear sides, and the safety device of fire extinguisher ideally. The satellite positioning devices operate orderly.
  3. Chemical tank truck has been intact installed of the license plate, security check signs, insurance signs have been placed correctly, driving license, road transport license, highly toxic chemicals road transport license is completed and effective, which chemical tanker trailer can carry with the vehicle. 
  4. The emergency cut-off device of acid tank truck transportation sales is intact and in closed condition. 

 

Maintenance

The chemical tanker requires to be inspected frequently. The cross profile of the chemical tanker would be thinner because of acid corrosion, especially at lower liquid levels. Generally, the service life of a Chemical Tanker is between 20 and 30 years.

However, to ensure the safe operation of chemical tanker trailers, The chemical tanker shall generally test it for thickness at least once every two years. The inner shall be tested at least once every five years.

The chemical tank shall examine the integrity of the tank structure to prevent corrosion, chemical erosion, erosion, creep, fatigue, mechanical damage, and brittle fracture. 

Corrosion is the leading cause of aging and accessories problems of chemical tank trailers. Although stainless steel tanks can be resistant to corrosion, their continued use and exposure to different environments can make them vulnerable to being corroded. 

It’s hard to keep even because of corrosion and erosion to the tank. Sometimes there will be random or localized pitting, especially at the bottom of a flat spot. Acid temperature is a contributing factor to this phenomenon. In addition to the durability and effectiveness of the base seal and other factors, materials of tank structure and the condition also play an essential role in the corrosion resistance of the acid tank trailer.
