Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is a colorless, odorless, flammable, and non-corrosive gaseous hydrocarbon, primarily composed of methane and ethane. The global CNG vehicle market is expected to reach 19 million units by 2018. Over the next few years, an entirely new infrastructure of CNG fueling stations will be built across America.
There are design and safety requirements unique to CNG infrastructure due to the physical properties of high pressure gas. Many CNG Applications we are seeing are operating at 5,500 psi. There is a need for CNG specific Instrumentation and Valves.
Almost all of the natural gas we use comes from right here in North America. Natural gas vehicles (NGVs) are an answer for reducing dependence on foreign oil and increasing domestic energy production and availability.
For the past decade, SSP has been a leader in creating fueling systems for CNG vehicles, and is now helping their customers to meet the challenges in CNG fueling station construction. CNG Plus products are designed to meet the specific needs of the CNG fueling construction and maintenance business. SSP Offers CNG Specific Fittings, Tubing, Supply Line Sheathing, Time-Fill Valves, and tooling to ease CNG construction.
The HPEFV Series from ChemTec controls high pressure excessive flows of liquids or gases. If there is an excessive flow due to a failed valve, or broken line the HPEFV will close and shut off flow. A great safety feature for CNG delivery. An Optional switch is available, which can be used to warn when the unit closes.
The ASCO Series 291 valve is specifically designed for CNG dispensing equipment in North America. Few valves on the market have the high flow and pressure ratings, plus the low power consumption, that are critical to design engineers.This Valve's High flow design for fast CNG dispensing, reduces vehicle fill time.
