Oklahoma City Outfit Debuts CNG Tank Assembly with Storage
Oklahoma City-based Heartland CNG unveiled a compressed natural gas fuel system replete with work truck storage cabinets at ACT Expo 2015 in Dallas this week.
The Heartland package on a bi-fuel Ford F-550 truck with 6.2-liter engine is being shown by Landi Renzo USA. The truck was driven from Oklahoma City to Dallas.
Heartland teamed with Dakota Bodies of Watertown, S.D. on the prototype package, says company president Justin Steckman. “This configuration allows us to ship the unit more economically than ever before,” states a release. “it also facilitates easier tank installations and inspections not previously available.”
Easy to Ship, Easy to Inspect
The use of aluminum instead of steel, Steckman notes, “reduces the amount of heat that is absorbed into the CNG storage compartment, which will result in better fills at the CNG pump.”
The demo unit at ACT Expo has two G-Stor Go Type IV cylinders from Luxfer for a total capacity of 47.4 gasoline gallon equivalents. Parker Veriflow fittings from Tulsa-based Precision Fitting & Gauge allow the truck to pass CNG fuel to other vehicles in emergencies.
ACT Expo 2015 runs through Thursday, May 7 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas.
