Momentum Fuel Technologies, headquartered in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, has introduced a 150 diesel gallon equivalent (DGE) back-of-cab system to its line of compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel system solutions for U.S. Class 6 to Class 8 trucks. It is in stock and ready for delivery.
“We continue to expand our Momentum compressed natural gas fuel system product line in support of fleets who prefer to operate CNG-powered vehicles,” said W.M. “Rusty” Rush, Chairman, CEO and President, Rush Enterprises, Inc. “We believe that natural gas remains a viable option for some customers, and we are pleased to invest in product technology to meet a wider range of needs in the marketplace.”
The 150DGE back-of-cab system mounts between factory cab extenders with four neck-mounted cylinders for enhanced durability. It features a tested and proven enhanced pressure relief device (PRD) system with eight fast flow PRDs to allow rapid evacuation of CNG in case of emergency. New and replacement parts for this system are manufactured in-house by Momentum Fuel Technologies.
The system features a new pressure regulator with a high-capacity filter, allowing the system to operate from 3600 pounds per square inch (PSI) when it is full to a minimum of 230 PSI (an improvement from the previous 450 PSI minimum). This system, geared for over-the-road haulers, has the range equivalent to a 160DGE fuel system due to its lower operating pressure. “The new pressure regulator is designed to allow drivers to go further on a tank of fuel,” said Mike Zimmerman, General Manager, Momentum Fuel Technologies.
