Daewoo Propane Forklifts

Daewoo Propane Forklifts

Change a Propane Tank
Forklifts fueled by propane are common inside warehouse environments. These forklifts have a propane mount situated at the back of the operator. These tanks have to be replaced every so often since they have limited lifespans. Forklift operators should utilize care when handling propane tanks. Compressed gases are very hazardous, especially since the gas is flammable. Always use caution when removing and replacing propane tank to avoid injury.

1 To change a propane tank, first stop the forklift and leave the engine running, and turn off the valve on the tank. Let the lift truck run until the engine dies. This procedure burns the gas off inside the transfer hose that connects the engine and the tank. Before taking the next steps, put on the correct safety equipment, such as insulated gloves made of either neoprene or leather. It is vital for you to protect your skin from contact with the compressed gas, which is extremely cold.
2 Disconnect the hose from the tank and take off the holding straps to remove the tank. When you put in a new tank, tighten the nut to reattach the holding straps and to reconnect the hose at the valve of the tank.
3 Leaks could be checked simply by applying soapy water to the valve and opening it slightly. If there is a leak, it would cause bubbles to froth from around the valve. If this occurs, inspect the connection hose at the nut and the valve area. The connecting nut must be re-tightened if you detect any leaks around the area of the valve, and after that do the leak inspection process again. Persistent leaks mean that both the connecting hose and nut would have to be replaced. However, if replacing the hose and nut still does not stop the leak, the tank should be replaced.
4 Lastly, open the valve all the way to enable the gas to fill the connecting hose. After that you could start the lift truck and resume working.
