How to Fill Forklift Cylinders
Liquid propane is usually utilized to operate forklifts or industrial lift trucks. There is the option to have cylinders brought to your facility, or to have refueling capabilities on site. Operators who are working with propane-powered forklifts should be trained to handle substances that are highly flammable.

1 Before refueling, you must wear personal protective equipment. Thick leather gloves must be worn to be able to prevent liquid propane from coming into contact with the hands. The liquid is very cold and could result in serious burns. Other protective equipment includes a full face shield and goggles. A fire extinguisher must be close at hand.

2 The forklift must be shut down first. Make certain there are no lit cigarettes and no open flames in the area. Remove the protective cap on the fill valve and attach the fill line securely to the fill valve. When the fill line is in place, carefully open the bleed valve. It is normal to hear a hissing sound when opening the valve, but make sure it is air escaping - not propane.

3 Open the fill valve on the fill line slowly. Look around the connections and make certain that there are no leaks. Afterward open the valve more and let the propane enter the tank. Monitor the tank during refueling; as soon as it is full, the bleeder valve would emit a spray of white gas. Turn off the fill valve completely first prior to closing the bleeder valve. Carefully take the fill line out of the tank. A small amount of gas that is escaping at this time is normal. Make certain to screw the protective cap back onto the fill valve. Inspect all the valves in order to make sure that they are completely closed. Now, your truck is refueled and ready to drive.
