Luxfer Claims the Best Type IIIs

October 12, 2014 by Kirk Fetzer in APTA Expo 2014 with 0 Comments

Aluminum liner technology acquired when Luxfer bought Canada- and Germany-based Dynetek Industries in late 2012 has allowed the firm to improve its G-Stor Pro brand Type III CNG cylinders for transit. Today they’re 20% lighter than the competition, says business development director Mark Lawday – even outdoing the all-composite Type IV plastic-lined tanks offered for transit.

The result? “We are the lightest cylinder out there in the 16-inch range.” Key customers include Dallas Area Rapid Transit, which is fielding 489 full-size transit buses. They have roof-top fuel systems from Agility Fuel Systems (Booth 3465), with tanks from Luxfer.

Luxfer this year introduced its own line of all-composite Type IV G-Stor Go brand cylinders – large-diameter tanks aimed primarily at trucking customers.

Luxfer is at Booth 3458.
