McNeilus Advances NGEN CNG Systems and Services for Enhanced Performance, Reliability and Protection

Improvements include reduced fill time and simplified overall design.

McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing, Inc. introduced significant enhancements to its industry-leading NGEN CNG Systems and Services.  This portfolio of upgrades improves performance and reliability through enhanced fill efficiency, plumbing simplification and protection, and best-in-class service and support.

DODGE CENTER, Minn. (May 18, 2015) – McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) company, introduced significant enhancements to its industry-leading NGEN CNG Systems and Services. This portfolio of upgrades improves performance and reliability through enhanced fill efficiency, plumbing optimization and best-in-class service and support.

“With more than 30 years of experience in the refuse, mixer and other heavy-duty industries, McNeilus has engineered significant improvements to our already industry-leading NGEN CNG systems,” said Brad Nelson, Oshkosh Corporation senior vice president and president of the Commercial Business Segment. The adoption of CNG as an alternative to diesel fuel is accelerating, and these upgrades represent a major investment, driven to better meet the needs of our customers.”

The NGEN fuel delivery system now features improved capabilities, with optimized internal diameters that offer up to 30% improved fill times. The fill time now compares favorably to that of traditional diesel fuel. Streamlining the design has reduced the number of plumbing components by 25% and the number of connections by a stunning 50%.

NGEN systems also offer continuous protection thermal Pressure Relief Devices (PRDs) on all configurations that span the length of the tank and system, increasing protection against localized thermal events. Typical PRD configurations contain more high pressure plumbing and have less thermal sensing surface.

For enhanced serviceability and reliability, o-ring face seal (ORFS) fittings have been integrated, where possible. ORFS fittings can be tightened to proper torque values, mitigating assembly/reassembly errors.  They also offer superior rebuild ability over industry standard compression or flare fittings.

NGEN CNG Systems and Services are available on new vehicles or customer supplied vehicles as up-fits through the company’s national network of installation centers. McNeilus systems meet all NFPA-52 standards and are installed by the company’s factory-trained technicians. NGEN CNG Systems are backed by a two-year standard warranty. In addition, McNeilus carries a comprehensive inventory of replacement parts on hand at its regional installation centers.

“Through our national network of factory owned branches, our mobile technicians are certified to provide industry required 3 year, 36,000 mile inspections.  We are in a unique position to deliver unmatched support for fleets of all types,” said Nelson. “NGEN offers installation and support, with an extensive inventory of replacement parts and mobile service to deliver best-in-class value for our customers.”
