Chart unveils bonus capacity LNG fuel system

April 1, 2014

Chart Industries Inc, an independent global manufacturer of highly engineered equipment used in production, storage, and end-use of hydrocarbon and industrial gases, announced the release of a new bonus capacity LNG vehicle system during the 2014 Mid-America Trucking Show that was held March 27-29 in Louisville KY.

The new system maximizes the volumetric efficiency of the liquefied natural gas (LNG) vehicle fuel tank by 6% for the 2015 model year. This bonus capacity option is available on 26-inch-diameter horizontal vehicle tanks—the industry standard size. While the size of the external tank remains the same, the internal tank capacity has been increased to allow extended mileage for truck drivers.

“Continuously improving our vehicle fueling portfolio to satisfy the evolving needs of LNG end users is one of our top priorities,” said Bill Haukoos, president of Chart Distribution & Storage Americas. “The increased capacity of our new LNG tank means more time on the road and less at the pump for truck drivers, ultimately having a positive effect on their bottom line.”

Chart’s LNG technologies enable the use of natural gas in place of diesel fuel for a range of applications within the transportation industry including heavy-duty trucks, buses, off-road vehicles, and marine and railroad applications.
