UPS, a global leader in logistics, is planning to invest approximately $50 million to build an additional nine liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling stations, bringing the total number of stations to 13. All stations should be operational by the end of 2014.
This enhanced LNG fueling infrastructure will support the operation of approximately 1,000 UPS LNG tractors — displacing more than 24 million gallons of diesel fuel annually. UPS has used LNG vehicles for more than a decade and has benefited from lower fuel prices compared to imported petroleum.
ChemTec's Excess Flow Valves are used in CNG and LNG filling stations like these, and housed within natural gas vehicles (NGVs) and hydrogen generators. The EFV monitors the flow of gas and shuts off the line if there is an excess flow and tracks and regulates the flow of natural gas through pipes.
