150427_Momentum-Install_46-RetouchMomentum Fuel Technologies, a division of Rush Enterprises, has launched a 150 diesel gallon equivalent (DGE) back-of-cab system to its line of compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel system solutions for Class 6 to Class 8 trucks.

The 150DGE back-of-cab system mounts between factory cab extenders with neck-mounted cylinders for enhanced durability and features a tested and proven enhanced pressure relief device (PRD) system with eight fast flow PRDs to allow rapid evacuation of CNG in case of emergency.

The system also features a new pressure regulator with a high-capacity filter, allowing the system to operate from 3,600 pounds per square inch (PSI) when it is full to a minimum of 230 PSI (an improvement from the previous 450 PSI minimum).

Thanks to its lower operating pressure, the 150DGE back-of-cab system, which is geared for over-the-road haulers, has the range equivalent to a 160DGE fuel system.

“The new pressure regulator is designed to allow drivers to go further on a tank of fuel,” says Momentum Fuel Technologies general manager Mike Zimmerman.

The pressure regulator, which now comes standard on all Momentum products, is designed to reduce leak points and weight, and the high-capacity filter is larger than most competitive products and designed to be serviced less frequently.

Another product enhancement is the painting of all high-pressure fuel lines yellow, for easier identification by technicians.

“Painting the high-pressure fuel lines in yellow helps drivers and technicians stay safe, which is our top priority,” Zimmerman adds.
