Cobham Introduces New Family of Type 4 CNG Cylinders

Cobham’s new 17 inch diameter low profile cylinders offer customers more options

Orchard Park, New York - Cobham is introducing a new family of low profile 17 inch diameter, Type 4 compressed natural gas storage cylinders to the light and medium duty natural gas vehicle market.  Our new cylinders, which are available in both 60 and 83 inch lengths, will be on display at ACT Expo 2017 (Booth 854).



"The new family of 17 inch diameter cylinders further compliments our current 21 inch diameter offerings, enabling us to serve a wider range of medium and light duty customer needs," said Art Holbert, Outside Sales Manager for Cobham.  "The 17 inch size was developed in response to customers needing more supplier options in sourcing cylinders that sit below the bedrail to give pickup-truck owners the ability to use a cover across the entire length of the truck bed."  


Cobham's current 17 inch and 21 inch diameter families are available in both strap and boss mounts.  Cobham will begin developing larger diameter sizes in various lengths planned for release later in 2017.  We also produce customized sizes as needed.  As part of our commitment to offer superior products, additional load testing is performed to validate the mounts and composite interface will withstand long term vehicle usage. For added safety, Cobham cylinders are significantly more resistant to permeation.


Cobham designs and manufactures high performance composite pressure vessels and hybrid integrated structures for alternative energy, life support, military and commercial aircraft, and spacecraft applications. The NGV market is a strategic fit that leverages our gas management core capability and composites technology to offer the best value to end users.
