New Pressure Unit Improves 7.6-Liter ESI Phoenix Engine
CNG One Source is promoting a new pressure regulator designed to improve the performance of its compressed natural gas-fueled ESI Phoenix engine.
“If you have experienced natural gas leakage at the regulator, have been forced to ‘bleed off’ the CNG before using your truck, or have noticed inaccurate fuel levels, you most likely need a new regulator,” says a bulletin from CNG One Source president Karen Teslovich.
Better Wires & Pistons Too
“These newly designed regulators have been road tested in several CNG fleets using the ESI Phoenix engine in Navistar trucks over the past year with great success,” she says, noting that the new product is available only through her Erie, Pa.-based company.
CNG One Source acquired the 7.6-liter Phoenix, a spark-ignition, dedicated-natural gas engine based on the popular Navistar DT 466 diesel, from Texas-based Emission Solutions, Inc. nearly three years ago (F&F, April 6, 2013).
Other CNG One Source improvements to the ESI Phoenix engine include more reliable spark plug wires and more robust pistons, Teslovich says.
