An advanced fuel regulation module, the industry’s first fully integrated CNG (compressed natural gas) flow control and regulation system for medium-and heavy-duty vehicles with 5 to 12-litre engines has been launched by the Instrumentation Products Division of Parker Hannifin.
Parker’s advanced FM80 withstands extreme variations in temperature, flow, vibration, supply pressure, and gas composition, setting a new standard in CNG fuel handling.
Most current gas handling systems are typically comprised of a rubber-like diaphragm regulator, filter, sensors and solenoid plumbed together with a multitude of fittings. Unlike current systems, Parker’s FM80 features an advanced FM80 metal piston-style regulator, coalescent filters, pressure sensors, a lock-off solenoid valve, heat exchanger and low-pressure relief valve, integrated in one compact body.
Other Parker components to complete the fully customisable, integrated system include hoses, fittings, seals, manual shut-off valve, check valves, receptacles, and nozzles. The system offers customisable levels of integration and more configuration options than comparable products. The complete CNG fuel system exceeds industry standards for leakage and safety. It has been tested on a variety of engines and meets the flow and regulation specifications of all leading OEMs with CNG options.
