Eaton has launched a pair of new compressed natural gas (CNG) hoses for transportation applications. The high-pressure 35NG hose and low-pressure NG-TW hose for CNG applications have been tested by TÜV Rheinland and are among the first to be certified to ANSI NGV 4.2 Class A & D and ANSI NGV 3.1 Class B & C standards.
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.
The hose assemblies are designed to dissipate static electricity for safety. Additionally, the 35NG hose offers low volumetric expansion and available twin-line designs.
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 C. The NG-TW hose is also extremely flexible and offers a low permeation rate.
