Gaseous Fuel Vehicles
Traditional alternative fuel definitions have historically included ethanols, diesels and biodeisels, hybrid and electric vehicles, as well as various gaseous fuels. In the Transportation market segment, Swagelok actively supports fluid handling systems in applications such as: Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), Hydrogen (H2 - fuel cell), and Liquefied Propane Gas (LPG). Opportunities typically surround two main applications for each fuel type: fuel systems on vehicles, and the supporting filling station infrastructure, with vehicles further segmented by light duty (LD) and heavy duty (HD), and the filling stations by stationary and mobile application type.
The emergence and growth of these additional alternative fuel applications is driven by cost savings (fuel cost) and the need for reduction of greenhouse gases at both the consumer and commercial (fleet program management) levels.
Swagelok supports Transportation and Alternative Fuel applications for critical fluid handling systems that have:
- Extreme system pressures
- Extreme system or environmental temperatures
- Fluid or material exposure to caustic or corrosive substances
- Points of use high in vibration
- High cycle life and long life expectancy
