McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company, announces its industry-leading McNeilus NGEN Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) systems now offer customers an enhanced high capacity, low profile back-of-cab configuration.
“We’ve improved our newest back-of cab system, reducing overall weight and increasing capacity, all while maintaining the lower profile municipalities and construction vehicles with dump body configurations require,” says Lucas Crist, Project Engineer at McNeilus. “It provides customers with the benefit of all the needed capacity to get them through a full day’s work in a single module with 92 diesel gallon equivalents (DGEs).”
Ideal for fleets with Class 7 and Class 8 trucks, the NGEN brand system uses an exclusive, streamlined design with 50% fewer fitting connections and 25% fewer plumbing components than industry standard systems. Upgrades included three of Luxfer’s new GEN2 G-Stor Go Type 4 cylinders, optimizing the overall weight of the system and minimizing the height to meet low-clearance specifications. Each cylinder is fitted with a Luxfer G-Flo One-turn Valve that not only extends vehicle range by providing more usable gas at the required flow rate, but also significantly increases the filling flow rate. A dedicated pressure-relief device (PRD) system spans the full length of each cylinder and provides continuous heat protection.
“McNeilus is an industry leader with more than 5,000 NGEN brand CNG equipped vehicles on the road from coast to coast. We offer only fully tested and certified configurations that are backed by a national service network and an expert team to assist customers,” says Brad Nelson, Oshkosh Corporation Senior Vice President and President of the Commercial Business Segment and McNeilus.
The 92 DGE CNG back-of-cab fuel system offers customers exceptional value in innovation, performance, weight, fill time and durability, all backed by the industry’s best service and support network.
