Momentum Fuel Technologies Debuts New Roof-Mount Configurations
Momentum Fuel Technologies introduces two roof-mount configurations specially designed for the refuse industry to its line of CNG fuel system solutions for Class 6 to Class 8 trucks. The roof-mount system is available in both four-tank 70 DGE and five-tank 87 DGE configurations.
“We are also excited to announce that we will work with McNeilus and other refuse body manufacturers to ensure the entire line of Momentum CNG fuel systems is integrated with refuse bodies and a wide variety of other truck bodies to meet the needs of our waste customers,” says Mike Zimmerman, general manager at Momentum Fuel Technologies.
The system is fabricated with high-strength steel and lightweight aluminum, and the tanks are made of 3M nanoparticle-enhanced matrix resin technology. The system’s fuel management module (FMM) houses the electronics, fuel filter and fuel-fill receptacles and is conveniently located where the driver fuels the truck. The compact design incorporates Parker O-ring fittings, gauges, fill ports and valves with a simplified filter access through the bottom of the module. The FMM works in conjunction with the RushCare telematics platform, allowing fleet managers to monitor their usage stats and better manage their fuel consumption.
The design of the nose of the roof-mount system incorporates three separate alloy steel pieces to protect the CNG system from potential damage. If damage to the nose does occur, it is possible to replace one or more segments, rather than the entire nose. New and replacement parts for these systems are manufactured in-house by Momentum Fuel Technologies.
