JC Carter is the world leader in providing 50 GPM dry couplings to the heavy and medium trucking industry, to the waste management industry, and to the large bus industry. The couplings achieve typical filling requirements in a few minutes, with maximum safety and significantly reduced carbon, nitrogen and sulfur environmental release.
The current installed base for the JC Carter application is estimated to be 5,000 nozzles in countries all over the world, primarily China, United States, and throughout Europe. Under conditions of proper usage and maintenance, the nozzle can perform 10,000 fill cycles without requiring a seal change.
In particular, the JC Carter coupling is generally acknowledged to be the 50 GPM dry coupling that performs consistently in harsh, high volume applications.
At this stage in the development of LNG fuel for mining vehicles, the 50 GPM nozzle is being used, but it is expected that as the vehicles move to larger tanks, higher volume nozzles products will be required.
