Power management company Eaton Corporation has launched a high pressure 35NG hose and low pressure NG-TW hose for compressed natural gas (CNG) applications. Tested by TÜV Rheinland, the hoses are among the first to be certified to ANSI NGV 4.2 Class A & D and ANSI NGV 3.1 Class B & C.
Primarily utilized in dispensing and commercial vehicle applications, such as refuse trucks, buses and delivery vehicles, the certified hose offerings ensure safety requirements and quality standards are met.
“With volatile oil prices and large natural gas reserves in North America, the market for CNG vehicles has expanded rapidly over the past few years, and end users are looking to clean burning CNG to help reduce emissions and costs,” said Chris Schwab, global product manager, Eaton. “Eaton is committed to offering reliable CNG products, and stocking TÜV-certified hoses for express delivery.”
Constructed with a Teflon® resin tube, a stainless steel wire braid and a fire retardant cover, the low pressure NG-TW flexible hose is built to withstand the high temperatures found under the hood – up to 121 degrees Celsius (C).
