ANSI NGV 2 sets the specifications for on-board cylinders for natural gas vehicles (NGVs). CP Industries’ on-board cylinders for NGVs are designed and manufactured to the ANSI NGV 2 — 2007 specification and are also fully compliant to FMVSS-304 for compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel container integrity. We manufacture both Type 1 and Type 4 on-board cylinders.

Type 1

Type 1 on-board cylinders are of an all-steel design. The Type 1 design is considered the most durable and economical on-board cylinder design. The cylinders are designed and manufactured to the ANSI NGV 2-2007 specification and are compliant to FMVSS-304.

Additionally, CP Industries’ Type 1 cylinder design is registered with Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) in accordance to the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Specification B51-09 Part 2. With this Canadian Registration Number (CRN), our Type 1 cylinders are approved for use in a number of Canadian provinces.

With this Canadian Registration Number (CRN), our Type 1 cylinders are approved for use in Ontario. Registration with all other Canadian provinces is forthcoming.

Type 4

 

Type 4 on-board cylinders are designed with a non-metallic liner wrapped with carbon and glass fibers. CP Industries’ Type 4 on-board cylinders are capable of a high volume per weight ratio but still maintain high durability with safe operation of utmost concern. The cylinders are designed and manufactured to the ANSI NGV 2-2007 specification and comply with FMVSS-304.

Additionally, our Type 4 cylinder design is registered with Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) in accordance to the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Specification B51-09 Part 2. With this CRN, our cylinders are approved for use in a number of Canadian provinces.
