May 8, 2015
Parker Hannifin Corporation introduces the FM80 Fuel Regulation Module, the industry’s only fully integrated CNG (compressed natural gas) flow control and regulation system for medium duty and heavy duty vehicles with 5L to 12L engines.

Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, introduces the FM80 Fuel Regulation Module, the industry’s only fully integrated CNG (compressed natural gas) flow control and regulation system for medium duty and heavy duty vehicles with 5L to 12L engines. Parker’s advanced FM80 withstands extreme variations in temperature, flow, vibration, supply pressure, and gas composition, setting a new standard in CNG fuel handling.

Most current gas handling systems are typically comprised of a rubber-like diaphragm regulator, filter, sensors and solenoid plumbed together with a multitude of fittings. Unlike current systems, Parker’s FM80 features an advanced FM80 metal piston-style regulator, coalescent filters, pressure sensors, a lock-off solenoid valve, heat exchanger, and low-pressure relief valve, all in one compact body. Other components to complete the fully customizable, integrated system include choice of Parker’s best-in-class hoses, fittings, seals, manual shut-off valve, check valves, receptacles, and nozzles. The system offers customizable levels of integration and more configuration options than comparable products. The complete CNG fuel system exceeds industry standards for leakage and safety. It has been tested on a variety of engines and meets the flow and regulation specifications of all leading OEMs with CNG options.

The FM80 was launched by Parker’s Veriflo Division, well known in the industry for its wide range of robust and reliable regulators, at a press conference on May 6 at the 2015 Alternative Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo in Dallas, Texas.
