What Is A 1800L Sulfuric Acid Tank Trailer?
Some hazardous substances and chemicals may be transported in some industrial areas. Such as sulfuric acid, which is a very dangerous corrosive liquid. These sulphuric acids must be transported all over the world. In this case, 1800l sulfuric acid tank trailer will be used to transport sulfuric acid, and fudeng’s sulfuric acid tank trailer is the best choice.
What is a 1800l sulfuric acid tank trailer?
The 1800l sulfuric acid tank trailer is a kind of tank car used to transport acids (such as sulfuric acid, hydrochloric acid, hydrofluoric acid, nitric acid, acetic acid, etc.) for industrial purposes. Acids have different chemical and physical properties. In this case, different acids require different materials to be used in the construction of their respective tank cars. However, it is not necessary to have a different type of sulfuric acid tank trailer for each type of acid.
Why choose a stainless steel sulfuric acid tank trailer?
1. Wide range of applications. Stainless steel tank trailer is widely used in food, beverage, dairy, medicine, cosmetics and other manufacturing processes that require cleanliness and purity. In industrial plants, they are also used to store chemicals and gases that require chemical resistance. Stainless steel is a kind of ferroalloy, which contains a certain proportion of chromium, so that the metal has corrosion resistance. Corrosion resistance is achieved by depositing a thin layer of metal oxide, which can be used as a barrier for corrosive materials.
2. Because stainless steel has chemical resistance, it is not easy to be corroded by dilute sulfuric acid / hydrochloric acid and other substances. A very thin passivated chromium oxide layer is formed on the surface to prevent further chemical reaction of the metal alloy. This makes stainless steel a perfect match with chemicals such as acids. Since the protective film remains intact, corrosion will not occur under these conditions.
Our sulfuric acid tank trailer do not rust easily
The treatment process adopted by the 1800L sulfuric acid tank trailer can ensure that the stainless steel does not rust. Steel with low carbon content to prevent weld corrosion. Carbon usually combines with chromium to form chromium carbides in the heat-affected weld zone, thereby reducing the corrosion resistance of this area.
Sulfuric acid tank trailer inside
The interior of the 1800l sulfuric acid tank trailer is made of polyethylene (PE) to prevent further corrosion. This protects the interior from environmental reactions caused by the surrounding air, which can lead to corrosion. Polyethylene (PE) is suitable for a variety of acids because it is not corroded by dilute sulfuric acid or hydrochloric acid. The internal components of the acid tank are made of linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) or high density polyethylene (HDPE).
In addition, standard safety checks and procedures should be performed on 1800l sulfuric acid tank trailers. The service life of these tanks is usually estimated to be between 20 and 40 years. The thickness of the storage tank shall be tested at least every two years, and the internal inspection shall be conducted at least every five years to ensure safe operation. Many reasons will lead to tank aging and failure.
