Daewoo Propane Forklifts

Daewoo Propane Forklifts

Change a Propane Tank
Forklifts fueled by propane are common in warehouse environments. These forklifts have a propane mount situated at the back of the driver. These tanks have to be replaced from time to time since they have limited lifespans. Operators of forklifts must use care when handling propane tanks. Compressed gases are very dangerous, especially because the gas is flammable. Use care when replacing and removing propane tank to prevent being injured.

1 If there is a need to change the propane tank, the first step is to stop the lift truck, then turn the tank valve off. The lift truck must be left on until the engine dies. This process burns off the gas in the transfer hose which connects the tank and the engine. Prior to taking the next steps, wear the correct safety equipment, like insulated gloves made of either leather or neoprene. It is really essential for you to protect your skin from touching the compressed gas, that is very cold.
2 The hose of the tank needs to be disconnected, followed by removing the tank from its holding straps. When putting in a new tank, tighten the nut to reattach the holding straps and to reconnect the hose at the valve of the tank.
3 You can check for leaks by applying soapy water to the valve and slightly opening it. Leaking gas will cause bubbles to froth around the value. If this occurs, check the connection hose at the nut and the valve area. The connecting nut should be re-tightened if you detect any leaks around the area of the valve, and then do the leak inspection procedure all over again. Persistent leaks mean that the connecting hose and nut will need to be replaced. However, if replacing the nut and hose still does not stop the leak, the tank must be replaced.
4 Lastly, open the valve all the way to allow the gas to fill the connecting hose. Then you could start the forklift and resume operating.
