Quantum Offers New CNG Tank, Virtual Pipeline Options

Quantum Fuel Systems announced it will manufacture a new compressed natural gas fuel cylinder for heavy-duty trucks that provides up to 60 diesel gallon equivalents and allows back-of-cab window visibility.

The Q-Cab60 is the lightest tank in the industry, weighing 135 pounds, to achieve 60 dge by a single tank, according to the Lake Forest, Calif.-based company.

Also, its Virtual Pipeline trailers for CNG will have expanded gas-transportation capabilities, including biogas, hydrogen and flare gas in 2018, Quantum said.

“Building pipelines to remote well sites is often cost-prohibitive or simply lags behind the rapid development of new wells. With our Virtual Pipeline trailers, the natural gas can be captured and transported.”
