Type 1 CNG storage tanks


Forklifts, delivery trucks, and other industrial vehicles prioritize durability and affordability, making Type 1 cylinders a suitable choice.
Type 1 CNG tanks offer a reliable and cost-effective way to store CNG for various applications.
Their simplicity and durability make them a popular choice, particularly for industrial vehicles and drivers with moderate driving range needs.
Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) cylinders are A popular choice for truck, transit, and refuse fleets.

Type 1 CNG storage tanks Supplier

DSW Industry supplies Type 1 CNG Storage tanks in various sizes to store compressed natural gas.
This high-pressure container containing flammable and explosive gas is explosively dangerous. The vehicle gas cylinder’s storage pressure is 20MPa.

What are Type 1 CNG Cylinders?

Type 1 CNG cylinders are the most common type of CNG storage tank. They are constructed entirely of steel, making them:

  • Durable: These cylinders can withstand the rigours of everyday use thanks to their robust steel construction.
  • Simple: Their design is straightforward, minimizing potential failure points.
  • Cost-Effective: The lack of complex components makes them the most affordable option among CNG cylinders.

Specification of CNG GAS CYLINDERS
The steel cylinder is made from 4130X seamless with a design wall thickness of 5.9 mm. Its outer surface is covered with a resin-based glass fibre composite.
The composite is wrapped in mixed fibres: low-angle winding, high-angle winding, and hoop-winding. The finite element method is used to perform stress analysis and optimize autofrettage of the composite gas cylinder.
The designed composite gas cylinder complies with ISO 11439-13, and after optimizing autofrettage, it has the best autofrettage of 52 MPa.

Compressed Natural Gas CNG Storage Tanks

A type 1 cng tank, which can store natural gas under pressure 20MPa or 25MPa, is made of 4130X seamless steel tube with ISO9809-1/ISO9809-3/EN/DOT approval.
Which are explosive pressure vessels containing flammable and combustible gases.
The storage pressure for automotive cylinders is 20MPa.
The steel walls of Type 1 CNG storage tanks are approximately 0.5 to 1.5 inches thick, making them the heaviest type.
A standard Type 1 cylinder has a diameter of 11 inches for the most petite and 16 inches for the largest. Type 1 cylinders have a history of reliability and durability.

There are four categories of CNG gas tanks.
First, we have seamless alloy steel cylinders.
CNG-2 composite gas cylinders have a steel or aluminum inner lining and a reinforced barrel.
With long fibres impregnated with “hoop-wound” resin.
Composite gas cylinders are the third category, with an aluminum lining and carbon fiber entirely.
CNG-3 is a ring-wound glass fiber reinforcement with a wound surface.
Fourth category: Composite gas cylinders with plastic liner and carbon fiber
Full winding with glass fiber ring reinforcement (CNG-4).

The advantages and disadvantages of each Compressed Gas Cylinder will vary.

CNG cylinders are the most common cylinders used worldwide. They are generally high-quality.
ISO 11439, ECE R110, and chromium-molybdenum alloy steel can all meet the ISO 11439 standard.
The requirements of the majority of countries.

The complete CNG tank for an automobile has a cap, valve, and safety release device.
The valve cap and safety relief device should be in place.
