‘Single Supplier Solution’ for High and Low Pressure NGV Tubing
AFV Natural Gas Fuel Systems is now offering tubes and hoses for natural gas vehicles that fit the SAE J2044 connector. “This positions AFV as a single supplier solution for high pressure and low pressure tubes, hoses and fittings for the entire NGV fuel system,” the company says.
AFV notes that SAE J2044 connections, originally designed for gasoline and diesel applications, are also being used for the low pressure lines on CNG and LPG vehicle fuel systems.
AFV has specialized in high pressure parts for NGV fuel line systems and says it’s responded to customer requests for additional low pressure solutions using the automotive SAE J2044 connector. AFV now provides tubes and hoses with this end form that fits in to the SAE J2044 connector.
“The addition of the integrated J2044 end form and J2044 brazed fitting for CNG fuel line applications makes AFV a ‘one-stop-shop’ when the SAE J2044 connections have been used in the fuel line design,” AFV new business development manager Doug Stumpfl said in a release.
“There are also some specialty vehicle applications using the J2044 connections for emissions lines as well as fuel lines and AFV presents those companies with a high quality, high value supplier solution,” he said.
AFV notes that SAE J2044 connections, originally designed for gasoline and diesel fuel system supply, return, vapor/emissions and coolant and heating lines for automotive and light truck applications are also being used for the low pressure lines on CNG and LPG vehicle fuel systems.
