Worthington Industries Inc. has introduced a lightweight, large diameter, 26.2-inch model compressed natural gas (CNG) cylinder which is the company's largest Type III CNG cylinder. 

  • Provides superior fast-fill efficiency
  • Inner aluminum liner dissipates heat during fast-filling, allowing for an additional 15 to 25% more fuel storage compared to Type IV cylinders of similar size  
  • Ideal for Class 8 heavy-duty and refuse trucks
  • Fills to rated capacity to make longer routes possible
  • Aluminum inner liner provides added safety of reducing the risk of flex or fracture in the outer composite reinforcement if an impact occurs   
  • Built to aircraft, railcar and watercraft CNG cylinder standards which are more stringent than typical over-the-road standards
  • Company's testing requires a minimum burst safety factor of 3.0 times the rated pressure, along with sidewall structure impact testing
  • Certified with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)/Canadian Standards Association (CSA) NGV2 standard
  • Features gas-tight construction due to inner aluminum liner which prevents permeation
  • No filling restrictions in hot or cold weather
  • Aluminum liner provides better heat tolerance in the event of a fire, and transfers heat to the pressure relief device
