Control Division's CNG natural gas valve integrated with filter is designed for
compressed natural gas fuel dispensing systems with single and multi-tank
applications. The added filter removes impurities from the natural gas as well
as any particulates downstream of the valve, to allow a cleaner fuel source to
help improve vehicle operation.
high-flow rate allows operators to use a single CNG valve for two tanks, instead
of dedicating a separate valve for each tank and can operate within any
CNG-fueled vehicle including light-duty (sedans, pick-up trucks and SUVs),
medium-duty (vans and shuttles), heavy-duty (school and transit buses, semi-trucks,
waste disposal trucks and delivery vehicles) and off-road vehicles (lawnmowers,
forklifts, freight mounts and street sweepers). Using CNG as an alternative
fuel source helps meet low emission standards.
The CNG Valve can
withstand high pressures from 0 - 4500 PSIG, a range appropriate for working
and maximum tank pressures. For increased safety and reduced environmental
impact, the valve is designed with bubble-tight leakage at 0.
normally closed valve is built with a stainless steel body. Using an integrated
the CNG valve requires 18 inch leaded connection and can operate in a maximum
ambient temperature of 170F / 77C. The valve runs on a voltage of 12V dc and
has a current draw of 1.64A.
Design engineer compensation varies widely by location. If you live in Boston, your salary will average more than $90,000, nearly $20,000 above the national average. But if you live in Cleveland, your salary will average almost $10,000 below the national average.
A theme that was reflected in several ways at NPE 2015 was the use of 3D printing to assist in, or improve on, injection molding, as well as improvements in 3D printing materials and processes that are making better functional prototypes and end-use parts.
For many years, it was believed that the strongest biological substance on Earth was spider silk, but new research says aquatic snails produce an even stronger material that could disrupt manufacturing forever.
Most everyone thinks they are ready for an emergency or a disaster. Most everyone is wrong. But engineers are a unique position here as both the designers and beneficiaries of emergency preparedness systems.
