Cobham Offering Two New Type 4 CNG Cylinders
Cobham announced the successful qualification of two new Type 4 CNG storage tanks, marking its formal entry into the commercial NGV trucking market. Type 4 polymer lined carbon fiber wrapped tanks offer large gas volume in a low profile, lightweight storage vessel. Cobham’s 278 and 436 Liter tanks, 60 in. and 90 in. in length, are six times more resistant to permeation than required by the NGV2/FMVSS specification to offer enhanced safety and fuel preservation. Tanks can also be customized ranging from 17.4 in. to 26 in. in diameter, in lengths of 45 in. to 135 in. to meet specific market needs.
Cobham designs and produces composite pressure vessels and hybrid integrated structures for alternative energy, life support, military and commercial aircraft, and spacecraft applications. The NGV market is a strategic fit that leverages Cobham’s gas management capability and composites technology.
