Longwood, Florida based waste and recycling company, Waste Pro USA has awarded two contracts to design and construct two Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) stations to Gainesville, Georgia based fuel solutions technology specialist, Mansfield Energy.
The first will be a CNG time fill and fast fill station located on Waste Pro's Daytona Beach, Florida facility. The second will be a CNG fast fill station for Waste Pro's Palm Coast Division and will be constructed on the waste company's Bunnell, Florida site.
Mansfield Energy explained that time fill stations are used primarily by fleets, and unlike fast fill stations, they may have larger compressors and the vehicles are generally filled directly from the compressor, not from fuel stored in tanks.
According to the fuel specialist, vehicles may take several minutes to many hours to fill, but typically get a fuller fill then with fast fill.
The company added that fast fill stations receive fuel from a local utility line at a low pressure and then use a compressor on site to compress the gas to a high pressure.
Once compressed, Mansfield said that the CNG moves to a series of storage vessels so the fuel is ready to go for a quick fill-up, with fill times typically less than 5 minutes for a 20 gallon (76 litre) equivalent tank.
