A new valve designed specifically for compressed natural gas dispensing systems removes impurities from the fuel to ensure a cleaner fuel for vehicles.

The CNG natural gas valve with integrated filter from Parker Fluid Control Div. is suited for downstream valve installations, according to the company. A high-pressure, high-flow, low-leakage valve, it is designed for natural gas fuel dispensing systems with single- and multi-tank applications.

The added filter removes impurities that can affect fuel quality, according to Parker. The high-flow rate design gives users the flexibility to use a single CNG valve for two tanks rather than two separate valves, helping reduce costs. The valve can operate within any VNG-fueled vehicle from light- to heavy-duty as well as off-road vehicles such as forklifts.

Built with a stainless steel body, the valve is designed with bubble-tight leakage at 0 PSIG and can withstand high pressures from 0 to 4,500 PSIG. Using an integrated electrical coil enclosure, the CNG valve requires 18 in. leaded connection and can operate in a maximum ambient temperature of 170 deg. F. It runs on a voltage of 12VDC and has a current draw of 1.64 amps.
