SMC Products in the CNG Vehicle Maintenance Facility Modification Market
Posted by: Amber Livingston | Posted on: Monday, October 15, 2018
Sierra Monitor’s gas detection products are used extensively in maintenance facilities to ensure a safe work environment. Many DoT (department of transportation) and MTA (metropolitan transportation agency) are converting their fleets to CNG and to understand the process for conversion, the US Department of Energy (DoE) published the scintillating “Compressed Natural Gas Vehicle Maintenance Facility Modification Handbook”.
While this is a general overview of the requirements for converting a standard commercial vehicle maintenance facility to CNG, Sierra Monitor is proud to have its products shown a few separate times in this publication. See if you can spot the SMC gas detectors!
For transportation authorities considering CNG, this is an excellent booklet explaining the requirements – including the need for NTRL-certified gas detection.
SMC has extensive experience in this market – with customers including Penn DOT, Central Ohio Transport Authority and Los Angeles MTA. If you have questions about life safety (gas or flame), don’t hesitate to give us a call +1 (408) 262-6611 or send an email.
