Quantum Launch an Initial Order of Collar Mounted CNG Tanks

Quantum has launched a new line of Q-Lite carbon composite CNG storage tanks, which can be collar mounted for both back-of-cab systems and side rail-mounted systems. 

The company says that these storage solutions complement its existing family of strap mounted tank systems.  Quantum has received an initial order for the new collar mounted tanks and anticipates initial shipments to begin near the end of this month for a high volume CNG integrator. 

The first application of Quantum’s new collar mount product line is associated with a 21” diameter by 80” long tank (86” overall length with collar neck) which stores 28.4 DGE.  Other sizes will soon be available with collar mount versions, including Quantum’s industry leading 25” diameter tanks in a variety of lengths. The tanks are a variant of Quantum’s standard strap mount design, except the end bosses have been extended to allow for collar mounting.  This maximizes commonality in manufacturing to provide the best value for our customers.

“We are excited to launch this new line of collar mount CNG tanks to address this growing segment of the CNG truck market,” said Mr. Brian Olson, President and CEO of Quantum.

The Q-Lite technology has set standards for the optimisation of carbon fibre, yielding what the company say is the lightest tank in the industry, with the greatest fuel capacity in a given volume.
