How to Read a Forklift LP or propane Bottle Gauge
There are important safety reasons for forklift drivers to know how to read a forklift propane bottle gauge. The driver has to know when the forklift is almost out of gas. Several types of forklifts that are older are designed so that the forks lower to the ground slowly and the machinery shuts off automatically when it is out of fuel. This is really not sage and could result in product damage and personal injury. Newer kinds of forklifts are designed differently to avoid this from occurring. The driver could operate a handle that stops the forks from falling when the propane runs out.
1 Know where the propane gauge is located. The gauge looks a lot like the gas gauge on a car. It is a small round object located either on the forklift dash where the rest of the gauges and controls are situated or on the valve on the propane tank.
2 Always keep the cover of the gauge clean so that the letters and lines behind the glass are legible.
3 Situated at the bottom of the gauge is the indicator needle. This needle would show you how much fuel is still inside the propane tank.
4 On the gauge: E represents empty and F represents full. When the needle arm touches the letter E, it would mean that the propane tank is totally empty. When the needle arm touches the letter F, it would mean that the propane tank is completely full.
5 In the middle of the gauge, there is a line. When the needle arrives at the middle line it will mean that the tank is half full of propane.
6 Note that there are smaller lines halfway between the middle lines. These lines mean quarters. When the needle touches the quarter mark closest to the F, it means there is three-fourths of a tank remaining. When the needle arrives at the quarter mark nearest E, the tank is a quarter full.
