McNeilus NGEN Brand Enhances High Capacity Back-of-Cab CNG Fuel System
McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing announced its McNeilus NGEN CNG systems now offer customers an enhanced high capacity, low profile back-of-cab configuration. Designed for fleets with class 7 and class 8 trucks, the 92 DGE NGEN system uses a streamlined design with 50 percent fewer fitting connections and 25 percent fewer plumbing components than industry standard systems.
“We’ve improved our newest back-of cab system, reducing overall weight and increasing capacity, all while maintaining the lower profile municipalities and construction vehicles with dump body configurations require,” said Lucas Crist, project engineer at McNeilus.
Other upgrades included three of Luxfer’s new GEN2 G-Stor Go type 4 cylinders, optimizing the overall weight of the system and minimizing the height to meet low-clearance specifications. Each cylinder is fitted with a Luxfer G-Flo One-turn Valve that not only extends vehicle range by providing more usable gas at the required flow rate, but also increases the filling flow rate. A dedicated pressure-relief device (PRD) system spans the full length of each cylinder and provides continuous heat protection.
