Stainless steel road tanker

Nicrofer 3127 hMo, alloy 31, developed by ThyssenKrupp VDM GmbH, opens up new possibilities for the transportation and storage of hazardous substances such as sulphuric or nitric acid. This iron-nickel-chromium-molybdenum alloy has long been used in chemical, petrochemical, environmental, oil and gas sectors because of its high resistance to corrosion in aggressive media. Now it has been used to build a road tanker to transport hazardous liquids. The material is used for the complete tank, including pipes and other equipment. The tanker, a so-called suction/pressure vehicle, was built by Kutschke Fahrzeugbau GmbH for disposal contractors Lobbe Deutschland GmbH. Alongside ThyssenKrupp VDM GmbH, the Federal Institute for Materials Research & Testing (BAM) was also involved in the development of the material as the licensing authority. BAM will create dependable framework conditions for the use of this material in transporter construction. The eighth edition of the BAM list of authorised materials for the transportation of highly aggressive media will contain Nicrofer 3127 hMo, as well as tow other ThyssenKrupp VDM materials, Nicrofer 5923 hMo, alloy 59, and Cronifer 1925 hMo, with the corresponding material class licenses.
