FUDENG can provide tankers of different shapes according to the type of liquid being transported. We have Oval fuel tanker trailer, Round fuel tankers, Rectangular-Round petroleum tank trailers, and Bullet-Round gas tanker trailer for your options.
Oval tankers are a very popular choice in Africa. Because the elliptical diesel tank can effectively reduce and disperse the pressure of the liquid on the petrol tanker wall.
Meanwhile it is beneficial to reduce the wall thickness and reduce the weight of the whole fuel tanker trailer.
In terms of driving safety, it is also good to improve the balance of the semi fuel tanker vehicle during driving.
In addition, there are breakwater plates inside the oil tanker trailer to prevent the liquid from shaking back and forth during driving and affecting the balance of the vehicle.
42 cubic Round petrol tank trailers for sale
The vehicle will produce a certain amount of jitter and mechanical vibration during driving, which will cause the sloshing of the liquid and impact on the inner wall of the tank. If the tank body is round, the shock generated by the vibration will be evenly distributed to the tank wall along the circumference of the tank body without excessive stress concentration, effectively preventing the liquid from thermally expanding and generating excessive internal stress And make the tank rupture.
The tank body of the oil tanker is round, the surface area is the smallest, the material is the least, the volumetric efficiency is the highest, the tensile stress in the container wall is the smallest, and the rigidity is good. It is especially suitable for high-pressure tanks and has good manufacturability. But the center of mass is higher, the impact force of the liquid on the four walls is greater.
54 000 liters Rectangular-Round petroleum tank semi trailer for Ghana
The rectangular-round tank of the same dimensions can carry the most fuel oil at one time. Mostly for the large volume fuel tanker trailers options, such as 54000 liters 60 000 liters 65000 liters 70 000 liters 75 000 liters or above. For such large volume transit on road, to make sure the fuel tanker trailer and truck total lenght will not too long which not good for turning directions, will choose to build the large fuel tanker trailer body with rectangular-round shape. Another reason that customers choose rectangular-round storage tanker trailers because can save lots of sea freight cost when do shipping.
Bullet-Round LPG gas tank trailer
The most common in LPG trailers.Since liquid LPG is a pressure vessel, the pressure requirement is higher than that of oil transportation.
The cross-sectional shape of the tank body of a fuel tanker is an important measure to reduce the center of gravity of the vehicle. According to the overall layout of the vehicle, the coordination of the shape, the height of the center of mass, and the types of items to be transported, the best cross-sectional shape suitable for a certain fuel tank truck should be selected.

The oil residue is the least, and the benefit is maximized.
3-2. FUDENG fuel tankers Less Oil Residual, less business running cost
After years of research and customer survey feedback, our designers have mastered the design of the sedimentation cup, the diversion tank and the submarine valve for different volumes, different sub-bins and positions. According to the characteristics of the oil, the precise angle design and Welding ensures that the oil in each bin can have the least residual quantity when unloading, so as to ensure the minimum residual quantity in the bin after every time the oil is transported and unloaded.
3-3. Never oil leakage of FUDENG fuel oil tanker trailers
No oil will be spilled between each bin. This is because FUDENG tank trucks use double-sided welding instead of single-sided welding for each compartment plate. Double-sided welding can not only reduce the probability of welding seams during use, but also make the bulkhead have better support for the tank body through double-sided welding.
Use the best quality airtight parts for the connection between the oil unloading pipeline and the subsea valve to ensure the tightness.
3-4. Lighter tare weight allow transit more fuel oil once to increase benefit
Using high-quality plates from well-known domestic aluminum factories, through the grasp of the shape, using thin aluminum materials under the premise of ensuring the quality of the fuel tanker trailer, there is no redundant design, and the weight of the whole vehicle is only about 7 tons. The lighter the quality, the more oil can be pulled in a single time, the more profits can be generated in a single time, and the more economical it is.

4. Production steps of FUDENG fuel tanker trailers
4-1. What we have done for a Fudeng fuel tanker trailer, from parts to your working fuel tankers?
Tank trucks are mainly composed of a chassis and a tank body. At present, the commonly used tank body materials are mainly carbon steel, aluminum alloy and stainless steel. In addition to the material of a good tank truck body, another very important factor is the production process. This is why the same configuration, the same tank material, but the price is different, as a manufacturer of fuel tanker trailer, let’s take a look at how aluminum alloy tanks are made.
Step 1. Prepare raw aluminium material
The tank body is made of 5182 aluminum alloy, and the aluminum plate is cut into a size that meets the national announcement standard by a plasma cutting machine
Step 2. Rolling tanker body
The aluminum alloy cylinder is made of 6mm thick material. After the aluminum alloy plate is cut to standard size, it needs to be coiled. The multiple aluminum alloy plates are connected together by the can coiling machine and fixed by double-sided welding.
Step 3. Prepare front and end shell
The requirements for the head are relatively high. We use a plasma cutting machine to cut into the shape required by the drawing, and then shape the shape by a hydraulic bulge machine, and form it at one time. Finally, the edge of the head is made into about 6cm by a screwing machine deep side.
Step 4. Produce wave plate
The production of the anti-wave board and the head is somewhat similar. According to the drawings, the plasma cutting machine and the edge machine are used to make the required shape. The difference is that there are multiple manholes of different sizes cut on the surface of the anti-wave board, which are arranged in a staggered manner.
Step 5. Welding the storage tanker body
The tank body of the oil tanker is fixed and changed to an appropriate angle through a rotating machine, and the machine is automatically welded, and double-sided welding is adopted. Through electric control, remote monitoring is used to avoid missing welding.
Step 6. Install toolboxes, protective fences, etc. to form a complete vehicle.
4-2. Quality testing for every FUDENG oil storate tankers
Gas tanker for sale water injection experiment: To ensure the high seal of tank body and avoid the leaks oil.
