U.S. manufacturer of refuse and mixer truck bodies and systems McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company, has upgraded its NGEN CNG Systems and Services. The company says the changes will improve performance and reliability through enhanced fill efficiency, plumbing optimization and best-in-class service and support.
“With more than 30 years of experience in the refuse, mixer and other heavy-duty industries, McNeilus has engineered significant improvements to our already industry-leading NGEN CNG systems,” said Brad Nelson, Oshkosh Corporation senior vice president and president of the Commercial Business Segment. The adoption of CNG as an alternative to diesel fuel is accelerating, and these upgrades represent a major investment, driven to better meet the needs of our customers.”
The NGEN fuel delivery system now offers up to 30% improved fill times, comparing favorably to that of traditional diesel fuel. Streamlining the design has reduced the number of plumbing components by 25% and the number of connections by 50%.
NGEN systems also offer continuous protection thermal Pressure Relief Devices (PRDs) on all configurations that span the length of the tank and system, increasing protection against localized thermal events. Typical PRD configurations contain more high pressure plumbing and have less thermal sensing surface.
NGEN CNG Systems and Services are available on new vehicles or customer supplied vehicles as up-fits through the company’s national network of installation centers. McNeilus systems meet all NFPA-52 standards and are installed by the company’s factory-trained technicians. NGEN CNG Systems are backed by a two-year standard warranty. In addition, McNeilus carries a comprehensive inventory of replacement parts on hand at its regional installation centers.
