Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc., California-based developer of natural gas storage systems, integration and vehicle system technologies, has launched a new line of Q-Lite™ CNG storage tanks which can be collar mounted for both back-of-cab systems and side rail-mounted systems. These storage solutions complement Quantum’s existing family of strap mounted tank systems.
Quantum has received an initial order for the new collar mounted tanks and anticipates initial shipments to begin near the end of this month for a high volume CNG integrator.
The first application of Quantum’s new collar mount product line is associated with a 21” diameter by 80” long tank (86” overall length with collar neck) which stores 28.4 DGE. Other sizes will soon be available with collar mount versions, including 25” diameter tanks in a variety of lengths. The tanks are a variant of Quantum’s standard strap mount design, except the end bosses have been extended to allow for collar mounting.
“We are excited to launch this new line of collar mount CNG tanks to address this growing segment of the CNG truck market,” said Mr. Brian Olson, President and CEO of Quantum.
