McNeilus selects Luxfer CNG cylinders for its front discharge mixer

   McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing, Inc. has selected Luxfer's industry-leading G-Stor™ Go Type-4 cylinders and G-Flo™ valves for its S-Series Front Discharge Mixer compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel system.

   The innovative Twin Vertical CNG configuration maximizes truck ground clearance without compromising on wheelbase. Vertically installed tanks free up frame space for chute storage, tanks and other components. The fuel management module features an NGV1 fill port, defuel port, manual-shutoff valve and pressure sensor, ensuring safe and successful fueling.

   The system features two Luxfer G-Stor Go Type 4 cylinders that provide 10 percent additional volume combined with a 30 percent reduction in weight compared to previous conventional hybrid cylinders. The lightweight, durable tanks are fitted with G-Flo Luxfer valves that provide superior flow even at low tank pressure, which increases range. The CNG cylinders provide 82 diesel gallon equivalents-a seven-DGE increase over the previous model-and feature a high-density polyethylene liner with full carbon fiber wrap.
