Parker FM80 Fuel Regulation Module Certified for Mid-, Heavy-duty Trucks

Richmond, Calif.-based Parker Hannifin Corp., said its FM80 Fuel Regulation Module is now CSA certified as a fuel system component for compressed natural gas-powered commercial vehicles.

This makes the FM80 the only fuel regulation module to adhere to the certification’s concepts of safety, performance and durability.

Parker’s FM80 is the industry’s only fully integrated CNG (compressed natural gas) flow control and regulation system for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles with 5- to 12-liter engines. Parker’s advanced FM80 withstands extreme variations in temperature, flow, vibration, supply pressure, and gas composition, setting a new standard in CNG fuel handling.

According to Madhukar Puniani, business development manager (Natural Gas Systems), Parker Veriflo Division, “With its CSA certification to ANSI NGV 3.1-2014/CSA 12.3-2014, the Parker FM80 Fuel Regulation Module is the standout choice for customers looking to optimize the safety and durability of their CNG fuel systems.”

Mike Zimmerman, general manager of Momentum Fuel Technologies, said, “It has been very beneficial to collaborate with Parker Hannifin. Our optimized system, which includes the FM80 fuel regulation module, helps customers use more of their existing fuel, giving them better performance and an improved range,” he said.
