Semi trailers, such as skeletal, flatbed and lowbed trailers, have always been an important tool for road transport. But their fuel consumption is horrendous. Heavy steel semi-trailers typically consume up to 25 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres when unladen. Of course, you can reduce fuel consumption even further by making the semi trailer lighter.
The low bed trailer has become a special tool for mass transportation because of its high transportation efficiency and safety. The peculiarity of its load placed higher demands on the load capacity, safety and height of the trailer. However, below the trend towards light trailers. We need to think about how to reduce the weight of the trailer. The high resilience requirements of bulk materials must also be taken into account. Therefore, FUDENG technical team has repeatedly researched and tested. Finally, a new generation of aluminum lowbed semi trailers has been developed that are both lightweight and highly resilient.
As far as I know, aluminum alloy is much lighter than steel. Aluminum lowbed semi trailer has become an important way to achieve lightweight in the world instead of steel low plate semi-trailer. Under the same performance conditions, the weight of the aluminum lowbed semi trailer is 35%-40% lighter than that of the steel lowbed semi trailer.
It is reported that the penetration rate of aluminum lowbed semi trailer in Europe, America and other developed countries is more than 70%. Aluminum semi trailers can bring direct economic benefits to users. A low flat semi trailer is overloaded with 3.4 tons of goods, and the transport cost per ton of KM is 0.5 yuan. The annual operation is 200000 km, and the annual income of each vehicle can be increased by 34000 Yuan. At the same time, about 45000 litres of fuel can be saved in the life cycle. Reduction of carbon dioxide emissions by 110-tons.
The addition of aluminum accessories also reduces the weight. The density of steel is 7.8g/cm, while that of aluminum is only 2.7g/cm. That means at the same volume. The weight of aluminum is only about one third of the weight of steel. The guardrail, support and toolbox of Fudeng aluminum low flat semi-trailer are made of aluminum alloy. Compared with steel, “Aviation Aluminum Three Piece Set” has the advantages of light weight, corrosion resistance, beautiful appearance and more convenient use.
Although the high cost and large one time investment are the main reasons why it is difficult to popularize the aluminum lowbed semi trailer. Restricted by high aluminum price and low production scale. The production cost of aluminum trailers is more than twice as high as steel trailers. But in fact, the fuel-saving performance of the aluminum lowbed trailer can fully offset the purchase cost of users in the future.
FUDENG trailer factory specializes in producing all kinds of light trailers. It has the characteristics of light weight, anti fatigue, anti twist, anti deformation and safety. The bearing capacity has been comprehensively improved. Welcome friends to contact us for more information!
