A 26.2-in. diameter cylinder has joined the company’s line of compressed natural gas tanks for heavy-duty trucks. First shown at the 2015 Alternative Clean Transportation Expo in Dallas, it is Worthington Industries’ largest Type III CNG cylinder and, product engineers contend, provides superior fast-fill efficiency. An inner aluminum liner dissipates heat during fast filling, affording an additional 15 to 25 percent more fuel storage compared to Type IV cylinders of similar size.
The top U.S. heavy-duty truck dealer’s parent company bills its newest business as the source of the first complete compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel system for Class 6 to Class 8 trucks—offering support from design and manufacturing, to sales and ongoing service throughout the equipment life cycle.
