Aluminum Fuel Tank Fitting Production

Aluminum Fuel Tank Fitting Production

At first, we create a detailed CAD and a mold, if die-casting is involved. Your chosen aluminum alloy will be either melted and cast into shape, or the billet will be CNC machined by milling or turning

Each component and part are precision-machined to specific tolerances for reliable performance. We have 100 sets of 3-, 4-, and 5-axis high-precision CNC milling and turning equipment, achieving tolerances of 0.002um. 

Then, we apply surface treatments to enhance the durability of your aluminum fuel tank fittings.

Weldable Design

We offer weldable aluminum fuel tank fittings. They are attached to socket-connect ends of an unthreaded pipe using a CPVC primer and cement—also known as a solvent weld. This allows for a cheaper design and permanent connections. 

Selection of Alloys

Being one of the leading aluminum fuel tank fittings manufacturers from China, we work with: 

  • Acd12
  • A380
  • ZLD104
  • Al 6082
  • Al 6063
  • Al 075
  • Al 5052

 

Usually, the recommended fuel tank parts raw material is aluminum 5052, either 1/4 or 1/2 hard aluminum.

AN & NPT

You can specify thread sizes using AN or NPT measurements and types. NPT fuel tank parts have a tapered thread. AN fittings are flare-type compression fittings. You can request either of them, or even a fitting that acts as an adapter between the two types. 

Chemical Resistance 

At HM, we offer a wide range of surface treatments to improve durability and resistance to corrosion. For example, we offer different types of anodizing, various plating, polishing, sand blasting, coloured powder coating, and more.

The thickness of an aluminum fuel tank depends on various factors like the tank’s size, intended usage, and design. Generally, a thickness of 1/8 to 3/16 inches is common for smaller tanks.

Is aluminum a good material for a gas tank?

Yes, aluminum is commonly used for gas tanks due to its lightweight nature, corrosion resistance, and suitability for various fuels.

How can I prevent galvanic corrosion between aluminum and brass?

To prevent galvanic corrosion between aluminum and brass, ensure proper insulation between the two metals using gaskets, seals, or non-conductive coatings.

What metals are compatible with aluminum?

Aluminum is compatible with metals such as stainless steel, titanium, and certain plastics. Compatibility depends on the specific application and environmental conditions.

Will brass and aluminum corrode when in contact?

Yes, brass and aluminum can undergo corrosion when in direct contact due to their dissimilar electrochemical properties. Proper insulation is crucial to prevent this.

Does brass stick to aluminum?

Brass and aluminum can experience bonding under pressure, especially at elevated temperatures. Using anti-seize compounds or compatible sealants can help prevent sticking.

Can stainless steel and aluminum be used together?

Stainless steel and aluminum can be used together, but precautions should be taken to avoid galvanic corrosion. Separation and insulation techniques are essential to prevent adverse reactions.
