Momentum Fuel Technologies’ Roof-Mount System
Momentum Fuel Technologies’ (Roanoke, TX) roof-mount configurations of its CNG fuel system are specially designed for the refuse industry. Momentum has been working with refuse body manufacturers to ensure the entire line of Momentum CNG fuel systems is integrated with refuse bodies and a wide variety of other truck bodies to meet the needs of waste customers.
Momentum’s roof-mount system includes tanks that are designed to be lighter than others in the industry, and the entire system is designed to be lighter and more efficient when compared to industry standard roof-mount configurations. The design of the nose of the roof-mount system incorporates three separate alloy steel pieces to protect the CNG system from tree limbs and other damage. If damage to the nose does occur, it is easier, safer and less expensive to repair or replace one or more segments rather than the entire nose. In addition to the roof-mount configurations, Momentum’s product line also includes six back-of-cab configurations (70DGE, 75DGE, 87DGE, 115DGE, 150DGE and 175DGE) and three side-mount configurations (30DGE, 40DGE and 45DGE), both proving to be popular with refuse customers due to their durability and, especially in the case of the back-of-cab systems, compact design requiring little mounting space.
Each Momentum fuel system includes a fuel management module (FMM), which houses the electronics, fuel filter and fuel-fill receptacles and is conveniently located where the driver fuels the truck. Constructed of highly-durable aircraft aluminum with a powder-coated exterior finish and Huck-bolted access cover, the compact design incorporates Parker O-ring fittings, gauges, fill ports and valves with a simplified filter access through the bottom of the module. The FMM works in conjunction with the RushCare® telematics platform, allowing fleet managers to monitor their usage stats and better manage their fuel consumption.
A comprehensive pressure relief device (PRD) network vents fuel in the system out through vertical vents in case of fire or other emergency. The PRD is engineered for rugged off-road use and is fitted with weatherproof caps to protect the system from environmental elements. The PRD lines are coated in red to indicate to service personnel that the entire system must be completely purged before servicing the PRD system. With safety in mind, all high-pressure fuel lines in Momentum systems are painted yellow, for easier identification by technicians.
Momentum’s roof-mount systems provide the industry’s best capacity by using tanks which are one-inch larger in diameter than competitive systems and hold more fuel in the same amount of system space as most existing designs. Fuel use is improved due in part to an efficient fuel pressure regulator with a high-capacity filter manufactured by Parker, which is also part of the FMM. With this regulator, drivers can go further on a tank of fuel when compared to current system limitations, as the regulator enables the vehicle to operate from 3,600 pounds per square inch (PSI) when full to a minimum 230 PSI. The regulator is designed to reduce leak points and weight, and the high-capacity filter is larger than most competitive products, so it can be serviced less frequently. New and replacement parts for these systems are manufactured in-house by Momentum Fuel Technologies, ensuring quality and improving speed to customers. Roof-mount, side-mount and back-of-cab systems are in production for immediate delivery.
Momentum Fuel Technologies offers the industry’s first complete CNG fuel system solution for Class 6 to Class 8 trucks, with comprehensive support from design and manufacturing, to sales and ongoing service throughout the product lifecycle.
