Who had thought lightweight would play a major role in vehicles with an overall weight...
Alutech, a company of the Salzburger Aluminium Group, is Europe’s leading supplier of fuel tanks and air pressure tanks in aluminium for heavy trucks. Based on this long experience in the commercial and special vehicles market, Alutech has successfully started serving the military sector with its high-quality aluminium products.
In order to become a total tank supplier, Alutech has increased their product portfolio to include hydraulic tanks. The benefits from aluminium can be highly advantageous here: it is light, flexible and free from corrosion.
However, aluminium can never fully replace steel as a tank construction material. Steel is strong, easier to work with and more formable than aluminium, and such qualities are required for hydraulic tanks for certain applications.
CUSTOMISED ALUMINIUM OR STEEL HYDRAULIC TANKS
SAG and its subsidiaries are therefore able to provide standard as well as tailor-made solutions in both steel and aluminium. For light and versatile vehicles where speed and weight are the most important features, aluminium hydraulic tanks are an excellent choice. Moreover, the lack of corrosion results in less maintenance and lower lifetime cost. On the other hand, a strong and heavy vehicle where features like strength and robustness are of highest importance, combined with complex tank shape, calls for steel as tank material. The tank can work as part of the chassis and help protect the vehicle and its passengers.
FUEL, HYDRAULIC AND UREA SINGLE OR COMBI-TANKS
Alutech creates single or combi-tank fuel, hydraulic and urea tanks, with up to three chambers, for commercial vehicles based on individual specifications. Annual quantities reached their peak with around 300,000 fuel and hydraulic tanks, and companies such as DAF, IVECO, MAN, Scania, Volvo / Renault trucks and many others swear by the high processing quality of these aluminium fuel tanks.
