McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing has selected Luxfer’s G-Stor Go Type-4 cylinders and G-Flo valves for its CNG-powered S-Series Front Discharge Mixer. The Twin Vertical CNG configuration maximizes truck ground clearance without compromising on wheelbase. Vertically installed tanks free up frame space for chute storage, tanks and other components. The fuel management module features an NGV1 fill port, defuel port, manual-shutoff valve and pressure sensor.
The system features two Luxfer G-Stor Go Type 4 cylinders that provide 10 percent additional volume combined with a 30 percent reduction in weight compared to previous conventional hybrid cylinders. The tanks are fitted with G-Flo Luxfer valves that provide optimal flow even at low tank pressure, further increasing range. The CNG cylinders provide 82 DGEs—a seven-DGE increase over the previous model—and feature a high-density polyethylene liner with full carbon fiber wrap.
McNeilus, an industry leader with more than 5,000 CNG vehicles on the road from coast to coast, offers a variety of mounting options and fuel capacities to meet customer needs, with new configurations constantly in development. CNG systems are installed on heavy-duty vehicles through the company’s national network of certified installation centers.
