McNeilus Makes Improvements to NGEN Natural Gas System
McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, an Oshkosh Corporation company, introduced enhancements to its NGEN CNG Systems and Services. This portfolio of upgrades improves performance and reliability through enhanced fill efficiency, plumbing optimization, and service and support.
The NGEN fuel delivery system now features optimized internal diameters that offer up to 30 percent improved fill times. Streamlining the design has reduced the number of plumbing components by 25 percent and the number of connections by 50 percent.
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.
For enhanced serviceability and reliability, o-ring face seal (ORFS) fittings have been integrated, where possible. ORFS fittings can be tightened to proper torque values, mitigating assembly/reassembly errors. They also offer superior rebuild ability over industry standard compression or flare fittings.
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.
