CNG Cylinders and Related Hardware for Vehicles Being Repaired

Luxfer Gas Cylinders is spreading the word that Virginia’s Certified CNG Inspector, LLC has chosen its carbon composite compressed natural gas fuel cylinders, valves, pressure-relief devices and mounting hardware for CNG containment on vehicles being serviced and repaired.

CCI-LuxferCCI provides on-site CNG fuel system inspections and repair to commercial clients, Luxfer says, specializing in on-site, after-hours work during fleet downtimes so vehicles don’t have to be pulled from service.

CCI offers competitive pricing on Luxfer equipment, Luxfer says.

‘A Great Relationship’

“A key factor in choosing Luxfer was CCI’s in-depth knowledge and experience using Luxfer products, CCI owner Jack Stepongzi says in Luxfer’s release. “We also have a great relationship with Luxfer since they offer a quality tank, great support and are willing to listen and work with us and our customers,” he said.

Stepongzi noted the importance and economic advantages of regular inspections and said that he frequently encounters misconceptions about NHTSA/National Highway Transportation Safety Administration requirements.

“Inspections are required every three years or 36,000 miles – whichever comes first,” he said. “I’ve seen some fleets end up paying over $100,000 for labor and new parts, which could have been avoided by regular inspections.

Inspections = Opportunity

“Inspections provide you the opportunity and leverage to have equipment manufacturers quickly fix any problems noted in the inspections, ensuring your fleet can operate safely, economically and on its regular schedule.”

“We are happy to be supporting CCI by supplying market leading products to complement their high-quality, flexible service and repair for CNG fleets,” Luxfer Gas Cylinders alternative fuel business development director Mark Lawday says in his company’s CCI announcement.
