“The Class 8 CNG truck application has unique requirements. Large capacity cylinders and fast filling capability are critical in this environment and these are specifically the areas where the OMB ‘Miami’ valve shines. Traditionally, CNG has experienced slower fill speeds than liquid fuels. This new valve helps to improve performance in filling while offering a safety advantage over manually operated valves,” said Chet Dawes, Vice President – CNG Automotive Products, Hexagon Lincoln.
When combined with Hexagon Lincoln’s line of TUFFSHELL(TM) lightweight, all-composite cylinders, the OMB ‘Miami’ electric valve brings the solution that fits both the safety and performance goals of the Class 8 truck industry.
OMB Saleri, S.p.A. is a supplier of valves and hardware supporting the industrial and automotive OEM market. The Hexagon Lincoln division of Hexagon Composites is based in Lincoln, Nebraska and has been filament winding composites for 50 years.
