At Tri-State Meter and Regulator Service, we work with you to understand your requirements and design the best CNG fueling system that will meet your needs and save your company time and money. We will work with you on your vehicle CNG conversion process, your CNG fueling system design, installation, startup, training, and follow-on service.

Design

Compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling stations are not one-size-fits-all, like gasoline or diesel stations. Building a CNG fueling station for a small fleet, a large fleet, or a retail application requires taking into consideration the necessary elements unique to your operations. Making the right choices about the size of compressor, the storage, the dryer, and the dispensers makes a big difference in the cost of the CNG fueling station and its ability to meet your current and future needs.

There are some key pieces of information needed to properly size a CNG fueling station. As with any project, the more information you have, the more accurate an estimate can be given. You should begin by considering the type of vehicles that will be refueled, how many vehicles will be refueling at this site, how much CNG each vehicle requires, the time frame in which the vehicles must be fueled, the type of dispensers, and if a card lock system is required.

Installation

After we have worked together to create the right design for your CNG fueling system, we can install it, conduct the initial startup, and train you on operating your system.  Our engineers ensure that your station is safe and meets the requirements of National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 52 Code, NFPA 70 (National Electric Code), ISO 13631, and all other applicable codes and standards.

Whether small or large, the successful installation of your CNG fueling system requires diligent, professional oversight and coordination from detailed station design through site construction to final acceptance.

Maintenance

Regardless of your CNG fuel system size or the number of vehicles being fueled, you will want to keep it running at its best for as long as possible. In addition to choosing reliable fueling equipment, you will want to implement preventative and scheduled maintenance programs to eliminate oil and other contaminants from the fuel stream and minimize station downtime.

A CNG fueling system is a major investment requiring dedicated service that will always be available to ensure you get the most out of your investment. Tri-State Meter and Regulator Service provides a comprehensive CNG fueling system maintenance program designed to maximize your station's reliability. Our team of experienced CNG fueling system technicians perform preventative and scheduled maintenance at each CNG fueling station. They are able to respond 24/7 to resolve urgent issues quickly and effectively.

In our service warehouse, we maintain significant inventories of spare parts and supplies for the CNG fueling systems we maintain. We also keep many long-lead time parts in stock to prevent unnecessary station downtime.
