Parker integrates CNG valve with filter

Parker Fluid Control Division’s CNG Natural Gas Valve Integrated With Filter is suited for downstream valve installations in compressed natural gas-powered transportation. The high-pressure high-flow low-leakage valve is designed for CNG fuel dispensing systems with single- and multi-tank applications. The added filter helps remove impurities from the natural gas as well as any particulates downstream of the valve, while its high-flow rate allows operators to use a single CNG valve for two tanks instead of dedicating a separate valve for each tank. The enhanced CNG valve also features improved sealing performance for greater reliability.

The CNG valve is designed to withstand high pressures from 0 to 4,500 psi; for increased safety and reduced environmental impact, the valve is designed with bubble-tight leakage at 0 psi for optimal sealing performance. The two-way normally-closed valve, built with a stainless-steel body, uses an integrated electrical coil enclosure and requires an 18-inch leaded connection. The valve, which can operate in a maximum ambient temperature of 170 degrees Fahrenheit, runs on 12V DC and has a current draw of 1.64 amps.
