About Our Company
Our customized light weight, high capacity tube trailers range from 10’-50’ in length and feature systems for pressure regulation and mobile refueling. The systems we offer feature G-Stor Pro Type III cylinders that combine the advantages and integrity of aluminum liners and the strength of carbon fiber, far exceeding existing steel tube trailer technology. These cylinders are lightweight, high-pressure (3,600psig), U.S. DOT approved and packaged in the most secure way to ensure safe delivery.

Overview of Gas Transportation Modules
There are many possible configurations. The majority of our GTMs use a cylinder with a 15.9 inch (40.4 cm) diameter that can be configured in rows of up to 6 cylinders. A 10′ pod uses a 108 inch (274.3 cm) long cylinder in 5 cylinders across by 6 cylinders high (or 5×6). A 20 foot ISO container is 5x6x2. A small truck, however, may use the 120 inch (304.8 cm) long tube in a 4×3 or 4×4 configuration.
In the US, Luxfer-GTM manufactures tube trailers with cylinders approved for use under Special Permit 15136 issued by the US Dept. of Transportation. We also use cylinders that meet the requirements of ANSI/CSA NGV 2, US DOT FMVSS 304, CAN/CSA B51, TC 301.2, METI-KHK, ISO 11439 and ECE R110. The cylinders have also been approved for storage and transportation of CNG in Australia, Japan, Indonesia, Mexico and Vietnam. In addition, Transport Canada has approved our GTMs for domestic use as well.
So pick your location, your mode of transportation and packaging interest, and we can make the GTM suitable for your application.
