Crude Oil Tanker Trailer Design and Construction

Truckman Automobile’s crude oil trailers are designed specifically for transporting crude oil and must be designed and constructed to strict industry standards to ensure the safe transport of crude oil.

Tanks: High-strength steel or special alloys ensure high structural strength and corrosion resistance. The internal coating is made of anticorrosive layers or special coatings to enhance its corrosion resistance to avoid tank corrosion and other problems. The tank construction standards are by API standards. The corrosion-resistant coating performance, as well as requirements, are by ISO standards.

Valves: Safety valves/discharge valves are installed in the tank to control the tank pressure and ensure the tank’s safety. Applicable to ASME standards.

Leakage Protection: The overall tank interface and connection points are well-sealed and have a sealing detection system to prevent crude oil leakage and other problems.

Bottom Discharge System: Discharge valves and filters are installed to allow the flow of crude oil and prevent impurities from entering the discharge system, protecting pipelines and equipment.

Suspension and tires: provide support and stability to the tank to adapt to different road and environmental conditions. Guarantee safe transport.

Crude Oil Trailer Tractor Pin

Crude oil trailer tractor pin can choose the 2-inch and 3.5-inch models. A 3.5-inch tractor pin is suitable for bad road conditions and heavy-duty loading, and a 2-inch tractor pin is ideal for good road conditions and light-duty loading. They are usually welded in place to prevent the semi-trailer from disconnecting from the tractor truck during transport.

Tanker Trailer Welding Tech

The crude oil trailer main beam tanker body all adopt the automatic submerged welding tech, guaranteeing the welding quality and improving the service life. It adopts automated welding, with beautiful welding seams and high working efficiency, effectively shortening the working period. The dependence of weld quality on the skill level of the welder can be significantly reduced compared to manual arc welding.

Crude Oil Tanker Trailer Safety Equipment

Fighting facilities: Tanks need to be equipped with adequate fire-fighting facilities, such as fire extinguishers and automatic alarm equipment, to quickly extinguish fires or organize the evacuation of people when a crisis is detected.

Protect equipment: Tank top safety devices such as fences, guardrails, lightning protection structures, air tightness testing facilities, etc.

Built-in breathing valve: Under a specific pressure difference, will automatically exhaust or suction, adjust the pressure difference between inside and outside the tank, and has a dumping overflow prevention function to prevent liquid spillage when the car is tipped over so that the tanker truck is safe and reliable in the transport process.

Maintenance hole cover: installed on the top of the tanker, is a channel for people to enter and exit the tank, and is also a critical loading port on the vehicle. There are 3 auxiliary ports on the maintenance hole cover, which can be used to install oil and gas recovery method, overflow prevention probe, oil measuring hole, or external breathing valve.

Maintenance and care recommendations

Proper maintenance and servicing can ensure the appropriate operation of the crude oil tanker trailer, extend its service life, and ensure safe transport. Here are some suggestions:

Inspect the tank and structure regularly: Check the tank for any visible corrosion, dents, or damage. Ensure that all welds and joints are free of cracks or looseness.

Keep the interior clean: Clean the interior of the tank regularly to ensure that there are no residual substances, in particular, to avoid accumulating deposits or chemicals.

Hydraulic and Pneumatic System Inspections: Regularly inspect the pipework, valves, and fittings of the hydraulic and pneumatic system to ensure no leaks or wear and tear.

Inspection of valves and seals: Regularly inspect all valves, seals, and joints to ensure they are not worn or damaged.

Check tires and suspension systems: Ensure the air pressure in the tires is as specified, and check the tires for wear. Also, check the suspension system’s components to ensure there is no looseness or damage.

Leak containment system checks: Regularly check the leak containment system, including leak detectors, valves, and seals, to ensure they work correctly.

Anti-corrosion treatment: The tanks are regularly treated for corrosion to protect them from environmental factors and crude oil.

Fastener inspection: All bolts, nuts, and connections are regularly checked to ensure they are in tight condition.

How to choose the right crude oil tanker trailer

Truckman Automobile suggests carefully evaluating the following factors, which will help you choose the right crude oil tanker trailer for a particular application based on your specific needs and budget. Before making a decision, it is recommended that you consult an industry expert or practitioner for professional advice.

Capacity Requirements: Determine your transport capacity needs. Consider the amount of crude oil you typically transport and whether you must transport it multiple times. This will help determine the range of trailer capacity required.

Budget Considerations: Setting a reasonable budget is vital to choosing the right trailer. Depending on your budget, consider purchasing a new trailer or looking for quality-used options.

Geography: Consider the geography of the area where you usually transport. You may need a trailer with solid suspension and excellent road holding if you regularly haul over rough terrain or in poor weather conditions.

Regulations and compliance: Ensure the trailer you choose meets all relevant laws and standards, including DOT, OSHA, EPA, and more. This includes requirements for leak-proofing measures, safety valves, and other critical components.

Materials and build quality: Choose a trailer made from high-strength materials that have undergone quality manufacturing to ensure adequate durability and safety.

Anti-corrosion coatings: Consider choosing trailers with suitable anti-corrosion layers, especially when transporting in wet or highly corrosive environments, which will help protect the trailer’s structure.

Unloading system requirements: If you need to unload crude oil at multiple locations, consider removable trailers for more efficient unloading.

Adaptability and customization options: Consider whether some features or accessories must be specially tailored to suit specific transport needs.
