Trilogy Switches to Lighter Weight Luxfer G-Stor Cylinders
Trilogy Engineered Solutions, a fuel system packager for the heavy duty truck market, recently began using Luxfer Gas Cylinders G-Stor Type 4 cylinders. The switch resulted in a 13 to 18 percent weight savings over the Type 4 cylinders Trilogy previously used. The significant weight reduction is the primary reason Western Dairy Transport (WDT), one of the largest transporters of milk and dairy products in the U.S., recently chose CNG systems from Trilogy Engineered Solutions for its growing fleet of CNG Class 8 trucks. Another important reason WDT prefers the Trilogy system is that it features two-sided fueling, which allows cylinders to be filled from either side of a truck. With a fleet of more than 1,000 heavy-duty trucks traveling about 115 million miles per year. WDT said that using CNG provides a monthly fuel savings of about $1,000 per truck compared to the cost of diesel.
