  • As seen on ebay: mobile compressor

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=250577971759

    According to the Q&A comments, the seller said that a Ford 460 is the powerplant and that four cylinders makes it run and four cylinders does the compressing.

    How cool is that?!

    Great concept.
    However, I would be very cautious of potential for oil carryover from the CNG compressing cylinders if used for refueling...

      It's a Hurricane. They've been around for quite a while. Good as a Band-Aid for a down station, but not meant for everyday use. They are very maintenance heavy, even worse than an IR.
      Nice concept, but why didn't they start with a diesel engine platform !

        I use to operate 3 of these compressors. Oil carry over is an issue. They normally came with a coalesor, most operators add high pressure dyer rack to help with this. They need to be checked at least once a day. The ANGI C series uses the same 2nd 3rd and 4th stage with out the outstanding Intercooling. http://www.angienergy.com/product.compressor.cfm

          This is what PG&E birngs in when they have a station going down for maintenance, or when a station dies and they are waiting for parts. You do NOT wnat to be behind a bus when one of these provides all the compresing for a station.
