McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing is offering a high-capacity back-of-the-cab 88-diesel gallon equivalent version of its McNeilus NGEN compressed natural gas system for Class 7 and 8 trucks.
The 88 DGE system is designed as a lightweight, high-capacity option for municipalities and construction vehicles with dump body configurations that require a lower profile. The NGEN brand system’s design features 50% fewer fitting connections and 25% fewer plumbing components. Three Luxfer G-Stor Go type 4 cylinders reduce the overall weight of the system while minimizing the height to meet lower-clearance specifications.
Each cylinder is fitted with a Luxfer G-Flo One-Turn Valve that extends vehicle range by providing more usable gas at the required flow rate and increases the filling flow rate. A dedicated pressure-relief device system spans the full length of each cylinder and provides continuous heat protection.
The system features a fully-enclosed structure with easy access door, o-ring face seal connections and CNC formed high pressure lines. McNeilus has plans to build off of the design to make the system scalable with custom capacity options.
