Certified CNG Inspector LLC (CCI), a provider of on-site compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel system inspections and repairs to commercial clients within the contiguous U.S., is offering equipment from Luxfer Gas Cylinders.
Based in Locust Grove, Va., CCI specializes in after-hours CNG vehicle servicing during fleet downtimes so that vehicles do not need to be pulled from service. CCI now offers competitive pricing on Luxfer carbon composite cylinders, valves, pressure-relief devices and mounting hardware for containment of CNG products on vehicles being serviced and repaired.
“A key factor in choosing Luxfer was CCI's in-depth knowledge and experience using Luxfer products,” says Jack Stepongzi, CCI's owner. “We also have a great relationship with Luxfer since they offer a quality tank, great support and are willing to listen and work with us and our customers.”
Mark Lawday, Luxfer Gas Cylinders director of business development for alternative fuel, says Lufxer is “happy to be supporting CCI.”
Stepongzi stresses the importance and economic advantages of regular inspections and notes that he frequently encounters misconceptions about how often the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration requires that CNG fuel systems be inspected.
“Inspections are required every three years or 36,000 miles – whichever comes first,” he says. “I've seen some fleets end up paying over $100,000 for labor and new parts, which could have been avoided by regular inspections. Inspections provide you the opportunity and leverage to have equipment manufacturers quickly fix any problems noted in the inspections, ensuring your fleet can operate safely, economically and on its regular schedule.’
