South America Manufacturer Reports NGV2:2007 Certification
Argentina’s Argentoil says it has secured NGV2:2007 certification of its new Inflex brand Type IV all-composite CNG cylinder by the international certification organization Bureau Veritas.
“This cutting-edge product makes us the only company in Latin America that manufactures Type I, Type II and Type IV,” the firm says.
The Unites States “is our target market,” Argentoil VP Juan Carlos Fracchia told F&F.
The new Type IV Inflex tanks come in liter volume sizes of 60 to 155, with the larger able to hold 13.7 gasoline gallon equivalents or 12 DGE diesel gallon equivalents.
Larger Cylinders Planned
The Inflex Type IV line is to be extended soon to include 250-liter cylinders – sufficient for 22 GGE and 19.3 DGE.
Argentoil says it has manufactured compressed natural gas fuel cylinders for more than 45 years. More than 5 million have been sold, in more than 40 countries, “without having experienced a single accident.”
The company will be displaying the new product with the Argentine NGV Association at ACT Expo in Washington, D.C. next week.
