Agility Fuel Systems Announces Lighter, Higher-Capacity, 160 DGE Behind-the-Cab CNG Fuel System
Agility Fuel Systems, the leading designer and producer of natural gas fuel storage and delivery systems for heavy duty trucks and buses has announced at the 2014 Natural Gas Vehicle (NGV) Conference and Expo the launch of a new, improved high capacity Behind-the-Cab compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel system.
The updated system now holds 160 DGE (up from 155 DGE) and weighs 500 lbs. less than the previous model. The improvements to the system come from the Agility Hexagon joint venture’s first new product: a new higher capacity and lighter cylinder design. The latest system continues to deliver the most efficient package of any CNG system in the industry and utilizes four of the newly designed cylinders, for a total weight of only 2050 pounds, and requiring only 31 1/4” of valuable frame rail space. Depending on the application, the system can deliver a driving range of 600+ miles before refueling. In addition to its already outstanding capacity as a stand-alone system, it can also be packaged with up to 126 DGE side-mounted systems for a total of 286 DGE and an unprecedented range well in excess of 1,100 miles.
The updated CNG system incorporates these key features:
Barry Engle, Agility’s CEO stated, “We maintain our industry leadership by continually improving our products with new technology and innovation. Our new 160 DGE BTC is the lightest in the market per DGE, and one of the highest-capacity stand-alone systems available to enable a broad range of over-the-road trucking applications.”
