April 6, 2017

Description:
Codes require numerous safety systems at CNG fueling stations—like Emergency Shut-Down Devices (ESDs), methane detection systems, breakaway hoses and others. However, installation of these systems alone is not the only step to ensure safe fueling. A periodic safety evaluation tests and evaluates the proper operation and function of all CNG fueling station safety systems and should be part of every CNG fueling station Operation and Maintenance plan. In this Tech Talk, NGVi’s co-founder and CNG fueling expert Leo Thomason will share when, why and how to conduct a CNG fueling station safety evaluation that will ensure safe fueling.
