Next generation initiatives promote CNG-powered solutions
McNeilus says they have led the way in offering a route-ready, fully tested and integrated CNG system. Units are configurable to meet customer needs, whether in time-fill or fast-fill operations, and all vehicles feature a standard NGV1 fuelling receptacle and Deutsch-brand electrical connections. At the heart of the plumbing are CNC-formed high-pressure lines, compression fittings, and high-pressure hoses with 5,000 psi working pressure.
The frame comes with boss-mounted tanks and integrated 3/16-inch steel guards to protect both ends of the tanks. The tanks are lightweight NGV Type 4, tank covers have no wires or props to abrade the tanks, and a standard thermal pressure relief device (PRD) provides continuous full tank-length protection. McNeilus CNG trucks are fuelled and tested before arriving ready to customer specifications, and all McNeilus CNG vehicles meet NFPA-52 Standards.
