Quantum Expands Back-of-Cab CNG Fuel Modules Product Line with the Launch of Q-Cab60

LAKE FOREST, Calif., April 27, 2017 – Quantum Fuel Systems LLC (Quantum), a global leader in natural gas storage systems for the automotive and heavy duty industries, today announced it will be manufacturing a new Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Fuel Module – the Q-Cab60. Quantum’s new module provides up to 60 Diesel Gallon Equivalents (DGE), and allows Back-of-Cab window visibility. Additionally, the Q-Cab60 is equipped with one Q-Lite® cylinder. Developed by Quantum, it is the lightest tank in the industry weighing only 135 lbs to achieve 60 DGE by a single tank.

“We are excited to share our newest design at the ACT Expo,” said Mark Arold, president of Quantum Fuel Systems LLC. “We have more than 20 years of experience with CNG tanks, and a unique ability to engineer and commercialize creative tank products that meet the needs of fleets looking to make the move to CNG. All of our modules have the most advanced, fully-integrated hook and hang systems making installation easy.”

Quantum’s Q-Cab and Q-Rail CNG storage modules are integrated CNG fuel systems for heavy duty truck applications. The Q-Cab product line is installed behind the cab allowing for a larger capacity of CNG. The Q-Rail product line is installed on the traditional open rail-space of the truck. Both systems have integral fuel receptacles, pressure relief devices, pressure gauges, fuel metering subsystems (including pressure regulator and thermal management) and a single harness truck-wiring interface to utilize the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) fuel gauge. Additionally, both modules are equipped with Quantum’s proprietary, ultra-light Q-Lite® CNG storage cylinder, which minimizes weight, while increasing fuel capacity.

The ACT Expo provides a one-stop shop for fleets of all weight classes to learn how to reduce costs and emissions. Quantum is proud to partner with the transportation industry’s leading organizations and deliver products that demonstrate the importance of sustainability across the industry.
