Komatsu Dual Fuel Forklifts

Komatsu Dual Fuel Forklifts

Dual Fuel Engine
The Dual Fuel engine is a kind of engine which utilizes a mixture of gas fuel or diesel fuel or can work off of diesel by its self. The dual fuel engine is not capable of working on gas alone. These engines do not have ignition systems and do not use spark plugs.

Because diesel is not a pure gas, and it is not a pure diesel designed engine, it has some disadvantages in the department of Methane slippage as well as fuel efficiency.. Like for example, the fuel efficiency can be 5% to 8% less than in a comparable spark-ignited, lean burn engine at 100 percent load. It could even be lower or higher loads.

Lift Truck Classification and Fuel Sources
There are certain applications which have proved a challenge for the forklift. Like for example, scrap metal is among these problems. In order to successfully handle things like this requires utilizing the correct kind of machine for the task.

There are 7 major lift truck classes, including power sources like liquid propane gas, hydrogen fuel cell, electric, gasoline and diesel. The power source is linked to several of these specific classes. The main power sources for forklifts comprise Gasoline, Battery, Diesel, Fuel Cell and Propane.

The most popular overall are electric powered trucks, mainly in Class I, II and class III forklifts. In Classes V and IV, internal combustion trucks are more popular. The most popular electric power source is the lead-acid battery. Amongst internal combustion trucks, about more than 90% are fueled by propane.

The most popular power source for lift trucks is battery. Battery powered models make up about 60 percent of the new forklifts sold within the USA. Their benefits comprise: quiet operation, less maintenance requirements, the ability to be used indoors and outdoors with no harmful emissions.
