Toroidal Autogas Tanks from Worthington Industries
Popular in Europe for many years because of the widespread use of propane autogas as a vehicle fuel there, toroidal fuel tanks were first introduced in the U.S. about a year ago by Worthington Industries. Toroidal fuel tanks utilize their unique doughnut shape for space efficiency for utility fleets. They are installed in the spare-tire area of a work truck, thus freeing up payload space. They also provide a flexible design option, along with reliable performance and value over thousands of miles of driving.
Toroidal fuel tanks are currently available from Worthington Industries in eight sizes, ranging from 23.6 inches in diameter and 9.8 inches in height to 28.4 inches in diameter and 13.8 inches in height. All sizes are compliant with American Society of Mechanical Engineers regulations. They are made of steel for durability, with a baked-on powder-coat application that maximizes corrosion resistance. They arrive ready for installation in a fleet vehicle by propane autogas system integrators, with all valves and fittings enclosed in a vapor box, along with multiple fitting adjustments so a tank can be easily configured for the vehicle in which it will be installed. www.worthingtonindustries.com
