HEXAGON LINCOLN – TITAN® bulk transportation of natural gas
Hexagon Lincoln’s TITAN® is designed specifically for bulk transportation of natural gas. Our composite cylinders hold four times more and weigh 75% less than steel tubes. The result: you spend less money to haul more gas and realize a faster return on your investment.
Your Mobile Pipeline®
Hexagon Lincoln’s TITAN® line is ideal for businesses that require a large consumption of gas at a high flow rate, but are not currently served by pipeline. Our modules and trailers essentially become your mobile pipeline, delivering large quantities of gas efficiently and cost-effectively from a mother station to your location. Industrial consumers or vehicle filling stations no longer need to wait for a real pipeline to be built before switching to natural gas.
TheTITAN® 40 ft Module is a 40 ft ISO 1496 certified shipping container that contains four TITAN® tanks, weighs only 34,613 lb / 15,700 kg unpressurized, and can be transported via rail, truck or ship.
TheTITAN® 40 ft XL Trailer configuration allows for the addition of a 30 ft TITAN® cylinder and optional additional TUFFSHELL® tanks to maximize onboard storage capabilities. The lightweight trailer ensures high weight efficiency and enables tandem operation.
