Hexagon Lincoln debuted its all-carbon 16 inch Type 4 pressure vessel for the transit bus and refuse market in Denver, Colorado US, last week at North America’s largest natural gas vehicle (NGV) event.

According to Hexagon, the tanks are the company’s highest gas capacity and lightest weight tanks for this market to date.

“In the race to be the lightest tank on the market, our engineers have never sacrificed durability for weight,” said Chet Dawes, Vice President of CNG Automotive Products. “It’s what makes us the global leader in the industry.” Hexagon explains that the new tanks are 70% lighter than steel and have a polymer liner that is corrosion free.
