ABS/DNV/BV Marine Grade Aluminum 5052 for Diesel Tanks


Mingtai marine grade aluminum 5052 was the first to obtain ABS/DNV/BV/LR/CCS class certificates ! This means that from American Bureau Classification (ABS), Det Norske Veritas (DNV), Bureau Veritas of Shipping (BV), lioyd's register of Shipping (LR), and China Classification Society (CCS) authority certification, successful practice on large Marine diesel tanks manufacture!

Marine Grade Aluminum 5052 for Diesel Tanks

With the rapid development of shipbuilding industry at home and abroad, more and more attention has been paid to the lightweight of ships. As we all know, Aluminum alloy is gradually used in various parts of ships such as ship decks, wheelhouses, ship sides, portholes, etc. due to its light texture, strong corrosion resistance, easy processing, etc., and is widely replaced by traditional heavy steel plates. It is vey cost-effective ! Among them, 5052 aluminum for marine diesel tanks has amazing effect ! 5052 aluminum sheet as one of commonly used marine grade aluminum, is be suitable to make large Marine diesel tanks approx 1500 litres each tank with minimum 2800 long. But as for the 5083 marine aluminu sheet only can go to 65 deg, which seems very low. So, marine grade aluminum 5052 for diesel tanks is the best choice ! Of course, for the Aluminum boat fuel tank can also be designed from aluminum 5086 sheet material.

Key Advantage of Marine Grade Aluminum 5052 for Diesel Tanks

(1)Small Specific Gravity. The Marine diesel tank is located at the bottom of the hull, which has a great impact on the weight and gravity of the whole ship. Marine grade aluminum 5052 for large marine diesel tanks can effectively reduce the ship's weight. Meanwhile, it can also increase the load of the tank without losing the high speed and stability of the ship.

(2)Good Welding and Forming Performance. Due to the interaction between alloy Cr and Mn in the 5052 aluminum sheet, the strength between the base material and the weld can be increased, thus reducing the tendency of welding cracks and meeting various welding requirements. In addition, with excellent machining formability, easy to cut, stamping, cold bending, etc., Marine grade aluminum 5052 can be well customized into a variety of hulled Marine diesel tanks.

(3) Excellent Corrosion Resistance. Of course, Marine grade aluminum 5052, which belongs to the 5 series Al-Mg alloy, is able to make diesel tanks with stronger corrosion resistance, longer service life, usually more than 20 years, and reduce the maintenance cost due to the addition of the main alloy Mg!

(4) Mechanical Properties
