Ohio Firm Is Supplying Compressors for 12 New Fueling Facilities
Ariel Corp notes that it’s supplying the compressors as UPS adds 12 new compressed natural gas fueling facilities to its national network. The Ohio-made Ariel units for the 12 new stations be packaged by ANGI Energy Systems and installed by TruStar Energy.
Along with the new CNG fueling facilities, UPS announced the addition of 380 new CNG tractors to its growing alternative fuel and advanced technology fleet, for a total new investment of $100 million (F&F, March 15).
“Our customers and TruStar Energy’s reputation rely on the quality of American-made Ariel compressors,” TruStar marketing director Jeffry Swertfeger says in an Ariel release. “Since 2009, we’ve fielded 160 Ariels.”
Putting the Lid on Fugitive Methane
Ariel offers separable reciprocating compressors engineered specifically for CNG. Ariel CNG compressors now feature ultra-low emission seal packings to reduce fugitive emissions at CNG stations. Ariel recently posted an informative white paper on the issue of fugitive methane emissions.
Ariel says that its compressors are used for a wide variety of energy applications, and that to date, more than 53,000 Ariel compressors have been sold in more than 120 countries.
