Quantum Fuel Systems LLC (Quantum), a supplier of natural gas storage systems for the automotive and heavy duty industries, this week announced its intention to manufacture a new Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Fuel Module – the Q-Cab60. Quantum’s new module provides up to 60 Diesel Gallon Equivalents (DGE), and allows Back-of-Cab window visibility.
Additionally, the Q-Cab60 is equipped with one Q-Lite® cylinder. Developed by Quantum, it is described as the lightest tank in the industry weighing only 135 lbs (61.2 kg) to achieve 60 DGE by a single tank, and comes with a 2-year 200,000 mile warranty.
Quantum’s Q-Cab and Q-Rail CNG storage modules are integrated CNG fuel systems for heavy duty truck applications. The Q-Cab product line is installed behind the cab allowing for a larger capacity of CNG. The Q-Rail product line is installed on the traditional open rail-space of the truck. Both systems have integral fuel receptacles, pressure relief devices, pressure gauges, fuel metering subsystems (including pressure regulator and thermal management) and a single harness truck-wiring interface to utilize the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) fuel gauge.
Both modules are equipped with Quantum’s proprietary, ultra-light Q-Lite® CNG storage cylinder, which minimizes weight, while increasing fuel capacity.
Quantum will have product on display at ACT Expo 2017 in Long Beach, May 2-3.
