Momentum Fuel Technologies introduces 32 and 55 DGE side-mount CNG fuel systems with higher ground clearance
Momentum Fuel Technologies is now offering its compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel system in a smaller diameter side-mount 32 and 55 diesel gallon equivalent (DGE) systems. The smaller diameter system is integrated on the frame rail of the truck, so it provides customers with best-in-class ground clearance, beneficial for construction and vocational customers, while still offering fuel capacity comparable to other systems.
The smaller diameter side-mount system can be installed on any brand of chassis with any of the major brands of mixer bodies. This new system was designed and built based on Momentum’s existing platform, with the same components, plumbing, mounting arms, torsion beams for protection and color-coded fuel lines for safety.
Momentum systems also come equipped with neck-mounted cylinders manufactured by Luxfer, the world’s largest manufacturer of high-pressure composite and aluminum cylinders.
With a focus on safety, this fuel system includes an alloy steel end plate and multiple aluminum extrusions to protect the cylinder. The smaller diameter side-mount systems can be integrated with Momentum’s fuel management module, for faster installation requiring less frame space.
