Industrial Plastics continue to support the evolution of national industries by creating and supplying quality plastic products. We have recently fabricated an AdBlue storage tank for a mining vehicle using High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) which was used as a replacement for the former metal version. 

Why did we produce an HDPE Adblue tank?

A mining company has reached out looking for a solution to upgrade a metal tank that sat on the back of a mining truck. The purpose of the tank is to store and transport a diesel exhaust fluid used in various types of vehicles. This additive is commercially called AdBlue. While traditionally formulated diesel is known to produce air pollutants, AdBlue burns at very high temperatures to break down harmful gasses and reduce emissions. 

HDPE AdBlue Tank

This project required a material with high chemical and impact resistance. For that reason, it was a unanimous decision to fabricate the AdBlue tank from HDPE, as this material is not only highly resistant and strong but also lightweight, which is extremely convenient for such applications. Moreover, HDPE is immune to rotting and rusting, as opposed to its metal counterpart.

Metal-to-plastic conversion capabilities

Our claim to be Australia’s premier custom plastics fabricator is backed by the broad spectrum of products we can develop. We have a knowledgeable team capable of limitless versatility, as this particular project shows. Taking only the original technical drawings of the metal tank, we were able to redesign and fabricate the same product out of high-performing plastic. We have the capabilities to design and create plastic replacements for metal components to suit a wide range of applications and requirements.

Multiple industries are upgrading their outdated metal products to plastic because it offers a variety of advantages, some of which we have mentioned earlier. Other benefits of plastic over metal include: 

  • Lower cost
  • Noise reduction
  • Longer lifespan
  • Dent resistance
  • Ability to accommodate more complex designs
  • No painting required
