Traditional alternative fuel definitions have historically included ethanols, diesels and biodeisels, hybrid and electric vehicles, as well as various gaseous fuels. In the Transportation market segment, Swagelok actively supports fluid handling systems in applications such as: Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), Hydrogen (H2 - fuel cell), and Liquefied Propane Gas (LPG).
Opportunities typically surround two main applications for each fuel type: fuel systems on vehicles, and the supporting filling station infrastructure, with vehicles further segmented by light duty (LD) and heavy duty (HD), and the filling stations by stationary and mobile application type.
