The smaller diameter side-mount systems provide higher ground clearance and can be installed on any brand of chassis with major mixer bodies, the company said.

Momentum Fuel Technologies offers their compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel system in a smaller diameter side-mount 32- and 55-diesel gallon equivalent (DGE) systems. The smaller diameter system is integrated on the frame rail of the truck, so it provides customers with ground clearance beneficial for construction and vocational customers while still offering fuel capacity comparable to other systems.

The smaller diameter side-mount system can be installed on any brand of chassis with any of the major brands of mixer bodies. This system was designed and built based on Momentum’s existing platform, with the same components, plumbing, mounting arms, and torsion beams for protection and color-coded fuel lines for safety. Momentum systems also come equipped with neck-mounted cylinders manufactured by Luxfer.

“With this new system, customers can expect the quality, durability, and safety Momentum is known for, now with substantially more ground clearance, which is especially important to vocational customers spending a great deal of time off road,” said Mike Zimmerman, general manager, Momentum Fuel Technologies.

With a focus on safety, this fuel system includes an alloy steel end plate and multiple aluminum extrusions to protect the cylinder. The smaller diameter side-mount systems can be integrated with Momentum’s fuel management module, for faster installation requiring less frame space.

“Many of Momentum’s technological features focus on driver confidence, and now with the higher clearance of our new side-mount system, mixer customers can consider CNG trucks more than ever before,” Zimmerman said. “Further, we offer a streamlined installation process with our partner Custom Vehicle Solutions, for added customer convenience.”

Momentum Fuel Technologies offers support from design and manufacturing to sales and ongoing service throughout the product lifecycle with a nationwide dealer support network. The advantages for this product line include innovative design, advanced safety features, installation expertise, and a comprehensive support network.
