Tank trailers designed to carry one load has a single compartment while those that carry multiple loads have internal divisions in their tanks.
The distinguishing factors of tank trailers include the shape of the tank, the type of load that a trailer carries, and the size. Other distinguishing factors include refrigeration capability, pressurization capability, and acid resistance.
Some models are specifically designed to comply with a country’s regulations on the transportation of liquefied loads. Hence, the structure of trailers will vary across countries. However, the functionality of the trailers is the same regardless of the manufacturer.
The Tank trailer is used to transport gasoline, diesel oil, and benzene. It is also used to transport some types of inflammable and plosive liquid.
Gasoline and diesel fuels are used for standard cars and other types of vehicles. Hence, most fuel trailers have more than one compartment. Why do fuel tank trailers have several compartments? Here are the major reasons:
The efficiency principle: A trailer with different compartment can transport different kinds of liquid at the same time. This reduces the transportation cost and saves fuel because the trips are reduced to one.
Transporting each liquid in a different tanker is more expensive and inefficient. Trailers with multiple compartments can transport different grades of gasoline in one trip. A service station can receive all the products needed in just one trip.
To ensure stability: A liquid fluctuates to all directions in the tank when the trailer is running on a slope. If the fuel tank trailer has a large capacity, the fluctuations will cause major changes in the center of mass.
This, in turn, will cause major changes of the axle load, which affect the stability of the truck and trailer. The instability may cause the trailer to jackknife or rollover. Using a multi-compartment model reduces the changes of the axle load and hence keeps the trailer stable.
Carbon steel and stainless steel
The main advantages of using carbon and stainless on trailers include:
• Steel has high strength and is not damaged easily
• The price of steel is competitive and hence steel is popular in developing countries
• Carbon steel is easy to weld
• Steel is less prone to stress crack, which is common with aluminum
• The stainless steel is resistant to rust, can used to transport edibles
• The main disadvantages of using carbon steel are:
• Carbon steel requires galvanizing or painting on the surface to prevent rusting
• It has a higher density than aluminum alloy
The advantages of using aluminum alloy on tank trailers include:
• It is lighter in weight than steel
• Aluminum tank trailer can carry more liquid load
• The trailers are safer and more secure
• The material is resistant to rust and hence it does not pollute the liquid during transportation
• Some of the disadvantages of aluminum allow include:
• The strength of aluminum is almost half the strength of steel
• It is highly prone to stress cracking
• Welding aluminum plates is cumbersome
• It is more expensive than steel
The type of material used on a fuel tank trailer determines its price and loading capacity. The aluminum trailer may be light and resistant to rust but their strength is low and their price is high.
You must consider the end use of the trailer and your budget when choosing between the two materials. Steel may be your best choice if you need a high-capacity fuel tank trailer at a low cost.
The fact that aluminum is lighter and lower in strength than steel does not mean that aluminum trailers are weak. The trailers have enough loading capacity to transport fuel or oil in bulk.
