CNG OPTIONS FOR GARBAGE TRUCKS
Heil® makes it easier than ever to realize the savings from CNG garbage trucks with our factory-direct CNG program.
At Heil®, we recognize that a CNG fuel delivery system must integrate seamlessly not only with the chassis and the garbage body but also with your dedicated CNG fueling station. Our system enables your CNG refuse fleet to deliver the same productivity you would expect from a diesel unit while saving you money with clean, domestic, compressed natural gas as fuel.
Whether you are in the early stages of evaluation, or ready to make the leap forward, our waste industry CNG experts are ready to provide the guidance you need to make the right decision for your business.
All our CNG systems are designed and built in-house at our Fort Payne, AL facility for seamless integration with the garbage truck body and chassis you select. We also have a dedicated CNG fueling station at the facility, which enables your new Heil® CNG trash truck to be driven directly to your location when intermediate fueling stations are available en route, minimizing shipping costs and delivery lead time.
FRAME RAIL CNG STORAGE SYSTEM FOR
DEVELOPED FOR: CNG FRONT LOADERS AND CNG ROLL-OFF HOISTS
In this configuration, two 25-inch diameter by 80-inch long 40 DGE tanks are mounted, one on each frame rail, to provide a total capacity of 80 DGE. Availability of this option depends upon the specific chassis and body options you choose.
ROOF TRANSVERSE CNG STORAGE
DEVELOPED FOR: CNG REAR LOADERS AND CNG AUTOMATED SIDELOADERS
The roof transverse configuration is similar to the Front of Body design, except that the pod is bolted to brackets which are welded to the top of the body. The wheelbase (WB) remains the same as for a diesel unit, but the overall height is increased by 12-20 inches.
ROOF LONGITUDINAL CNG STORAGE SYSTEM
DEVELOPED FOR: CNG FRONT LOADERS
To ensure an OAH that does not exceed 13 feet, 6 inches on a front load collection vehicle with a top door (and a chassis frame rail height less than 43 inches), this configuration uses four 13-inch diameter by 120-inch long tanks, running lengthwise on the top of the body and providing 59 DGE. An additional tank can be added on the frame rail to achieve 73 DGE.
FRONT OF BODY CNG STORAGE SYSTEM
DEVELOPED FOR: CNG REAR LOADERS
In this configuration, the pod contains either four or five 16-inch diameter tanks. Each tank is 15 DGE, giving a total capacity of 60 or 75 DGE. The pod is bolted to brackets which are welded to the front of the body. This design does not increase overall height (OAH), but does require an increased wheelbase WB of 18-24 inches.
