Californian company CNG Cylinders International (CNGci) recently gained approval for its Type III CNG fuel cylinders in British Columbia (Canadian Registration Number R2348.51) and Ontario (CRN R2348.5), adding breadth to its North American market penetration.
CNGci says its large Type III, carbon fiber-on-aluminum cylinders – with diameters of 23 and 25 inches – offer “superior heat dissipation”. This allows “for significantly more gas and thus more usable DGE in the cylinder under fast-fill conditions, which is an industry game-changer.”
The company uses seamlessly forged AL6061 liners with an aerospace-grade carbon fiber full body overwrap. CNGci’s 93.5-inch tank can hold 49.2 DGEs under fast-fill conditions.
