How to Make Fast, Less Costly and Leak-Free Connections at CNG and LNG Stations (prerecorded webinar)


If you're a CNG or LNG station design engineer, packager or construction contractor, don't miss this exclusive technology update from Parker Hannifin on the advantages of O-Ring Face Seal (ORFS) fittings made exclusively for natural gas applications.


In CNG or LNG station construction, tube fitting can be a time consuming and expensive process. This 30-minute technology update will help you understand the latest developments in ORFS fittings and their application for your projects.


Topics will include:

• Why use fittings designed specifically for CNG and LNG applications?

• Using ORFS fittings for extreme temperature installations

• Installation and fitting advantages of ORFS fittings

• Best applications for CNG and LNG stations

• Parflange Technology - how it works and how to save time and money on tube assembly


Natural Gas Vehicle Institute

CNG Challenges

• Developing CNG refueling infrastructure
• Natural gas vehicles can cost up to 40% more than equivalent gas vehicles
• Gas vehicle conversions to natural gas can cost up to $18K
• Shorter driving range
• Longer refueling time
• Greater weight of fuel tank
• Currently only on a limited number of vehicles

CNG Advantages

• Natural gas (NG) is relatively inexpensive and available worldwide
• NG produces 30% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than gas or diesel
• NG is safer, with a low chance of flammability
• Supply of NG is expected to exceed demand, keeping prices depressed
• Government push through environmental regulations, tax credits & incentives
• Using existing natural gas lines makes vehicle refueling at home easy
• NG engine availability is increasing
• NG vehicles offer longer vehicle life with less long-term expense

Parker - Other Fuels (LNG, LPG)

CNG, LNG, and LPG fuels are less expensive alternatives to traditional fuels and are used in more and more motor vehicles. These alternative fuels reduce carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and hydrocarbon vehicle exhaust emissions. Still, they are prone to the same types of contamination present in traditional fuels. Parker Hannifin employs dedicated teams who focus only on the fuel market to provide you with the best possible system solutions. Learn More about Parker On Vehicle
