‘Bonus Capacity’ LNG Tank for 2015 Has the Same External Size
Chart Industries will show a new “bonus capacity” liquefied natural gas vehicle fuel tank at ACT Expo 2014 next week in Long Beach, Calif.
The new Chart product for the 2015 model year “maximizes the volumetric efficiency” of the LNG vehicle fuel tank by 6%. The option is available on industry standard 26-inch-diameter horizontal tanks.
“While the size of the external tank remains the same, the internal tank capacity has been increased to allow extended mileage for truck drivers,” Chart says.
‘More Time on the Road and Less at the Pump’
“Continuously improving our vehicle fueling portfolio to satisfy the evolving needs of LNG end users is one of our top priorities,” Chart Distribution & Storage Americas president Bill Haukoos said in a release.
“The increased capacity of our new LNG tank means more time on the road and less at the pump for truck drivers, ultimately having a positive effect on their bottom line.”
“LNG continues to become an increasingly attractive fuel for the heavy duty trucking industry, as more and more significant weight, space and fill speed advantages develop,” said Chart LNG vehicle fueling products GM Peter Murray.
