Chart Introduces Improvements to LNG Truck Fuel System

| March 20, 2013

Chart Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq:GTLS), a leading independent global manufacturer of  equipment used in the production, storage and end-use of hydrocarbon and industrial gases, has announced the release of a high capacity, fully integrated LNG truck fuel system.

Chart IndustriesFor the 2013 model year, Chart’s LNG truck fuel system has been integrated into a self-contained unit for simplified and expedited installation, as required by high-volume assembly lines. Additionally, the maximum single tank capacity has been increased to greater than 100 diesel gallon equivalent (“DGE”) enabling extended driving range without the cost of an additional tank. These substantial developments reinforce Chart’s commitment to continuous improvement. Chart’s LNG technologies enable the use of natural gas in place of diesel fuel for a wide range of applications within the transportation industry, including heavy duty trucks, buses, off-road vehicles, marine and railroad applications.

“Combining various on-board fuel system components into one integrated LNG truck tank package will facilitate more efficient installation,” stated Tom Carey, President of Chart’s Distribution & Storage Group. “Providing 100 DGE of storage in a single fuel tank will make LNG an even more attractive cost, space, weight and driving range alternative in heavy duty truck and bus applications.”
