OMB Saleri Solenoid Valve ‘Helps to Improve Performance,’
Also New Is a Lightweight Tuffshell Ground Storage Module
Hexagon Lincoln has an agreement with OMB Saleri to use a new, “Miami” brand solenoid valve “specifically to suit the unique requirements of the heavy duty truck CNG vehicle market.”
It is “the first solenoid valve solution which addresses the specific needs of the CNG powered heavy duty truck application in North America, Hexagon says. “With this new product offering, filling speeds are not negatively impacted by the added safety of an electric solenoid valve.
“The Class 8 CNG truck application has unique requirements. Large capacity cylinders and fast filling capability are critical in this environment and these are specifically the areas where the OMB ‘Miami’ valve shines,” Hexagon Lincoln CNG automotive products VP Chet Dawes says in a release.
A Safety Advantage Too
“Traditionally, CNG has experienced slower fill speeds than liquid fuels,” Dawes said. “This new valve helps to improve performance in CNG filling while offering a safety advantage over manually operated valves.”
Hexagon has also unveiled a new stationary storage module using a 26.7-inch-diameter Tuffshell compressed natural gas cylinder. “This lightweight container makes it easy to move, stack and store natural gas at your filling station,” the company says.
Both the new solenoid valve and Tuffshell Ground Storage module are on show for the first time at the North America Natural Gas Conference & Expo in Atlanta this week.
