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 behind the driver. These tanks have to be replaced periodically since they have limited lifespans. Drivers of forklifts must always utilize care when handling propane tanks. Compressed gases are very dangerous, especially since the gas is flammable. Always utilize caution when removing and replacing propane tank to prevent injury.

1 To change a propane tank, first stop the lift truck while leaving the engine running, and turn off the valve on the tank. Let the forklift run until the engine dies. This process burns off the gas in the transfer hose which connects the engine and the tank. Before taking the next steps, wear the correct safety equipment, such as insulated gloves made of either neoprene or leather. It is really important for you to protect your skin from touching the compressed gas, which is extremely 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 reconnect the holding straps and to reconnect the hose at the valve of the tank.
3 Leaks can be inspected just by applying soapy water to the valve and slightly opening it. If there is a leak, it would cause bubbles to foam from around the valve. If this occurs, check the connection hose at the nut and the valve area. Re-tighten the connecting nut if you detect any leaks in the valve area, and after that do the leak inspection process over again. Persistent leaks mean that the connecting hose and nut must be replaced. Nevertheless, if replacing the nut and hose 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 forklift and continue operating.
