J-W Power Company has developed a new patent-pending compressed natural gas (CNG) technology that allows the compressor to change the number of stages dynamically to utilize high pressure from storage to yield a higher flow rate. It is currently available in two models, J-W PowerFill and J-W PowerFill Lite. Both options are designed in a 4-stage/2-stage configuration. When in direct-fill mode or when filling storage, both package designs function in 4-stage mode. While a vehicle is fueling, the package automatically switches to 2-stages, increasing the flow rate up to 10x. Storage is typically 30% usable, with J-W PowerFill Technology, over 70% usage can be achieved, the company said.
“If you are planning to build a CNG fueling station, J-W PowerFill Technology increases flow rates without increasing horsepower, significantly increases use of onsite storage, reduces starts and stops on equipment, and ultimately enhances the customer’s fueling experience,” said James Barr, Vice President J-W Power Company. “We designed and built a CNG compressor package that can decrease fill times significantly by maximizing your on-site fuel storage by allowing the compressor to change the number of stages dynamically to utilize high pressure from storage to yield a higher flow rate.”
J-W Power Company CNG Refueling Equipment packages are available for sale, with or without maintenance. In addition, the company provides customers with start-up, commissioning, station equipment installation assistance, and contract maintenance services. Customer satisfaction, safety and a culture of commitment come first for J-W Power Company.
J-W Power Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of J-W Energy Company, specializes in leasing, sales, parts, and service of natural gas compression packages. J-W Power Company leases and operates its compression lease fleet in the United States with compressor packages ranging from 18 to 1775 horsepower.
