5083 aluminum alloy is widely used in the construction of tanker bodies due to its excellent combination of strength, corrosion resistance, and weldability. The two commonly used tempers for 5083 aluminum alloy plates in tanker body applications are H111 and O.
5083 H111 aluminum alloy plate is a strain-hardened and partially annealed temper. It offers high strength and excellent resistance to corrosion, making it suitable for the demanding conditions encountered in tanker bodies. The H111 temper provides good formability and retains its mechanical properties even after welding. This makes it ideal for fabricating complex shapes and structures required in tanker bodies. The H111 temper ensures the plate maintains its strength and integrity during the transportation and storage of various liquids and gases.
5083 O aluminum alloy plate is in the annealed condition, which means it has undergone full softening. This temper offers excellent formability and ease of fabrication, making it suitable for applications that require intricate shapes and bending. However, compared to the H111 temper, the O temper has lower strength and reduced resistance to corrosion. Therefore, it may be used in applications where the operating conditions are less demanding, or when the tanker body design does not necessitate high strength requirements.
