“The test equipment and facility simulates the combined effects of extreme road use to assure the integrity and strength of fuel storage module systems for heavy duty vehicle applications,” the company says.

Quantum makes lightweight Type IV compressed natural gas fuel cylinders and the cylinder assemblies needed to put the tanks to work on natural gas vehicles.

Design Changes Can Be Made Early

“Refining our advanced in-house test and validation capabilities to complement our systems integration and commercialization expertise enables us to implement changes early in the product development cycle to simulate real driving conditions such that our prototype, pre-production, and production modules satisfy specific customer requirements,” Quantum president and CEO Brian Olson said in a release.
