Hexagon continues delivering firsts to the Mobile Pipeline® market as the first TITAN®53 gas transport module was delivered in Lincoln, Nebraska, USA. The TITAN®53 is the result of a rigorous design, development and testing process built on the foundation of the deepest engineering expertise in composite pressure vessel technology in the industry.

Hexagon’s Mobile Pipeline® products provide customers around the globe with transportation, storage and distribution solutions. After nearly a decade of success with TITAN® products, customers are demanding the ability to move greater volumes of compressed gases including natural gas, hydrogen and industrial gases on every trip. The newly developed TITAN®53 cylinders and module optimise weight and capacity to meet the 36,300 kg GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) to allow operation in all 50 US states while delivering an estimated gas volume of 13,932 SCM of natural gas. Hexagon’s TITAN® cylinders are the largest composite cylinders now available.

Safety is top priority for our development teams, which have delivered over 700,000 high-pressure full-composite cylinders over their 25 years. Our composite cylinders hold up to three times the capacity of steel at the same vehicle weight, dramatically improving payload and range.
