56 • November 2017 INNOVATIONS EQUIPMENT & PRODUCTS With only five unique parts, the Type 3 Rail Mount is billed as the lightest compressed natural gas fuel system on the market. It offers a similar operating experience to diesel trucks, product engineers contend, and is designed to improve fuel economy, increase pay- load, reduce total cost of fleet ownership. "Weight means something different for each fleet. For some, it can make or break profitability. For others, it's a fuel economy factor," says Worth- ington Industries General Manager, Alternative Fuel Systems Business Wayne Powers. "This system, built with input from truck OEMs, installers and fleet owners, achieves both objectives." The Type 3 Rail Mount employs truck OEM fac- tory-installed brackets to hold an aluminum Type 3 cylinder, similar to the fit and finish of a diesel tank and engineered to provide durability while protect- ing the driver and fleet owner in the event of a side impact. The Type 3 Rail Mount is available in six 80- to 130-in. models, weighing 572-767 lbs. and offering 25 to 49 diesel gallon equivalent capacity. At 27-in. wide off of the frame rail, the fuel system provides a similar profile to diesel trucks, reducing the likelihood of clipping objects on turns. Facto- ry-installed steps provide standard driver ingress and egress. — Worthington Industries, Columbus, Ohio, www.
