Responding to customer demands, Southern California’s JC Carter has designed and commenced testing of a larger variant of its market-leading Ice Breaker brand quick-release fueling nozzle for liquefied natural gas vehicles.
The commercial Ice Breaker opens and closes for LNG fueling and disconnect using a double-handled scissor design, and allows vehicle fueling in about five minutes. Now JC Carter is preparing a 400-gallon-per-minite variant of the popular 50-gallon Ice Breaker nozzle.
Ice Breaker’s big brother is being designed primarily for marine applications – both the on-loading and off-loading of LNG cargo and the bunkering (fueling) of LNG-powered ships. It may also find use for quicker turnaround of LNG tanker trucks.
