Komatsu Dual Fuel Forklifts

Dual Fuel Engine
DF or Duel Fuel Engines are the kind of engines that can run on a mixture of gas fuel or diesel fuel or it could work on diesel fuel alone. Duel Fuel engines could not operate on gas alone because they do not posses an ignition system, nor do they possess any spark plugs.

As 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 instance, the fuel efficiency can be 5% to 8% less than in a comparable lean-burn, spark-ignited engine at 100 percent load. It can even be lower or higher loads.

Lift Truck Classification and Fuel Sources
There are certain recycling materials handling applications that could prove very challenging for lift trucks. Like for instance, scrap metal is among these problems. In order to successfully handle things like this needs using the correct type of machinery for the job.

In this write-up, the 7 major lift truck classes are discussed, including the power sources like hydrogen fuel cell, liquid propane gas, diesel, electric and gasoline. The power source is linked to several of these particular classes. The main power sources for forklifts consist of Battery, Diesel, Gasoline, Propane and Fuel Cell.

Electric powered trucks are the most popular, mostly Class III, III and class I forklifts. Internal combustion engines are more common in Classes IV and V. The most popular electric power source is the lead-acid battery. Among internal combustion trucks, around over 90 percent are propane powered.

The most common power source for lift trucks is battery. Battery fueled models make up roughly 60 percent of the new forklifts sold in the USA. Their benefits consist of: quiet operation, less maintenance requirements, the ability to be used outside and inside with no harmful emissions.
