LUXFER-GTM TECHNOLOGIES TO INTRODUCE TWO NEW STORAGE PRODUCTS
Luxfer-GTM Technologies, a joint venture between Luxfer Group and GTM Technologies, will introduce two new gas-storage products at ACT Expo 2014 in Long Beach, California, May 5-8. The first new product is the patented, mobile GTM1350-Refueler for dispensing high- pressure CNG. Mounted on a compact trailer that can be towed behind a standard ¾ ton pickup truck, the GTM1350-R has a CNG capacity of 335 DGE and an on-board booster pump and dispenser. The GTM1350-R uses Luxfer G-Stor(R) Pro Type 3 carbon composite cylinders, a glass-bulb pressure-relief device (PRD) system and ½ inch ball valves on each cylinder. The total gross weight is only 9,150 pounds. The GTM1350-R is ideal for supporting remote vehicle fleets, disaster recovery fueling and other applications requiring mobile CNG. Standard equipment includes both NGV1 and NGV2 filling receptacles mounted in a separate panel to easily refill the trailer at conventional CNG filling stations. An optional plumbing panel enables gas-flow reversal so that the GTM1350-R can be filled with gas recovered from stranded wells, flare-gas sources and landfills. The GTM1350-R can be fast-filled and fast-discharged up to 75 mscfh.
The second new product is the G-Pak system for storage and transportation of high- pressure gases, including CNG, at pressures up to 5,000 psig. The system uses Luxfer G- Stor(R) Pro Type 3 (aluminum-lined) carbon composite cylinders fitted with high-flow valves and protected by a pressure/thermal safety system. The G-Pak consists of an all- aluminum frame that encloses the cylinders, a regulated control panel, a high-flow regulator, push-pull valve actuators and built-in NGV1 receptacles that allow the G-Pak to be filled at most CNG filling stations. Customized control panels are also available. Its small footprint enables two or three units to be stacked in the bed of a standard pickup truck. Two units have a tare weight of only 520 pounds, so one or two G-Paks with CNG can be transported without a driver’s hazmat endorsement or truck placarding. The unit has a capacity of 21 DGE at 3,600 psig.
