Power management company Eaton announced the launch of the high pressure 35NG hose and low pressure NG-TW hose for compressed natural gas (CNG) applications. Tested by TÜV Rheinland, the hoses are among the first to be certified to ANSI NGV 4.2 Class A & D and ANSI NGV 3.1 Class B & C, Eaton said.
Primarily utilized in dispensing and commercial vehicle applications, such as refuse trucks, buses and delivery vehicles, the certified hose offerings ensure safety requirements and quality standards are met, according to the company.
“With volatile oil prices and large natural gas reserves in North America, the market for CNG vehicles has expanded rapidly over the past few years, and end users are looking to clean burning CNG to help reduce emissions and costs,” said Chris Schwab, global product manager. “Eaton is committed to offering reliable CNG products, and stocking TÜV-certified hoses for express delivery.”
Featuring an ultraviolet light (UV) resistant cover, the 35NG hose assemblies are designed to dissipate static electricity for safety. Additionally, the 35NG hose offers low volumetric expansion and available twin-line designs, according to the company.
Constructed with a Teflon resin tube, a stainless steel wire braid and a fire retardant cover, the low pressure NG-TW hose is built to withstand the high temperatures found under the hood – up to 121 degrees Celsius (C).
