Chart Industries has released a new bonus capacity LNG vehicle system.
The new system maximizes the volumetric efficiency of the LNG vehicle fuel tank by 6% for the 2015 model year. This bonus capacity option is available on 26-inch diameter horizontal vehicle tanks, which is the industry standard size. While the size of the external tank remains the same, the internal tank capacity has been increased to allow extended mileage for truck drivers.
“Continuously improving our vehicle fuelling portfolio to satisfy the evolving needs of LNG end users is one of our top priorities. The increased capacity of our new LNG tank means more time on the road and less at the pump for truck drivers, ultimately having a positive effect on their bottom line,” commented Bill Haukoos, President of Chart Distribution & Storage Americas.
“LNG continues to become an increasingly attractive fuel for the heavy duty trucking industry, as more and more significant weight, space and fill speed advantages develop,” added Peter Murray, General Manager – Chart LNG Vehicle Fuelling Products.
