In recent years, with the in-depth implementation of the “Belt and Road” initiative, economic and trade exchanges between countries and regions along the route have become increasingly close. CIMC sent a batch of carbon steel fuel tanker trailers to Africa.
The “Belt and Road” initiative is both a road of opportunity and a road to prosperity. CIMC will continue to accelerate its transformation and upgrading, actively expand overseas markets, rely on intelligent manufacturing, and give the company the wings of soaring development, so that “going out” will become the new normal. CIMC Vehicles' core concept of "Global Operation, Local Wisdom" has produced more fruitful results.
The tank trailer is the actual component of a fuel truck that carries the fuel. They are usually compartmentalised, meaning their tanks have different segments that are filled with fuel. This is done for two reasons:
1.efficiency: tanks with different compartments can carry more than one type of fuel at a time
2.stability: fuel truck drivers will undoubtedly drive on slopes during their journey; the tank compartments ensure that the weight of the fuel does not overload the truck’s axles, thus protects it from breaking, or otherwise stalling the truck.
How is Fuel Contained and Loaded in a Fuel Tanker?
Fuel tankers use highly technical equipment to ensure the process of loading, transporting and offloading the fuel product is as safe and wasteless as possible. Many tankers are fitted with special devices that read the quantity of fuel being loaded, control pressure, and even regulate temperature!
A specific type of hose is used during the process of loading and offloading the fuel. These hoses are designed to fit the opening on the tankers and usually have gaskets and seals in place to reduce and limit the amount of potential spilling. During the loading process, the vapour of the fuel is carefully monitored as these gases are highly flammable. Once loaded, the trucks are secured for travel and can head off to their destination, which is fitted with the same type of hose to properly offload the fuel.
Tanker trucks are vehicles with large tanks for transporting liquids. They are designed for specific cargos and service requirements and are built in a range of sizes. Tanker trucks are equipped with a pumping system for loading and off-loading liquids. The capacity is usually controlled by the 80,000 lb gross weight limit for trucks in the US. Small tanker trucks have a maximum capacity of 3,000 gallons, while large tankers have a maximum capacity of 11,600 gallons. However, the maximum capacity of a tanker truck depends on the density of the liquid being transported, explains Transcourt Tanker Leasing. Tanker trucks are categorized by volume capacity and size.
Transporting Various Liquids
The smaller-capacity tanker trucks transport liquid cargo throughout a local community. These types of trucks are typically used at airports to fuel aircraft. Small tankers also deliver domestic fuels, such as liquefied petroleum gas, to homes. This type of tanker normally carries less than 1,000 gallons. Large tankers transport more than 11,000 gallons and carry various liquids, including hazardous materials.
Many tanker trucks are capable of transporting various liquids simultaneously. These tankers use several compartments and are capable of transporting a variety of liquids, including industrial chemicals, concrete, diesel, milk, gasoline and water. Each individual liquid has a different density, which alters the tanker’s maximum carrying capacity.
