McNeilus CNG System Expansion

McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing Inc., an Oshkosh Corp. company, has expanded its McNeilus NGEN Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) system offerings with a new high-capacity back-of-cab CNG configuration that provides 88 diesel gallon equivalents packaged in a low-profile design.

Ideal for fleets with Class 7 and 8 trucks, the NGEN brand system uses an exclusive, streamlined design with 50 percent fewer fitting connections and 25 percent fewer plumbing components. Three Luxfer G-Stor Go Type 4 cylinders are used, 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 significantly 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 also features a fully enclosed structure with easy-access door, maintenance-friendly O-ring face seal connections, and North American-manufactured, CNC-formed high-pressure lines. Future plans to build off this new design will make the system scalable with customizable capacity options.
