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 rear of the operator. These tanks have to be replaced periodically as they have limited lifespans. Operators of forklifts must utilize caution when handling propane tanks. Compressed gases are dangerous, specially because the gas is flammable. Utilize caution 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 off the tank valve. The forklift should be left on until the engine dies. This procedure burns the gas off inside the transfer hose that connects the engine and the tank. Prior to taking the second steps, wear the correct safety equipment, like insulated gloves made of either neoprene or leather. It is very essential for you to protect your skin from touching the compressed gas, that is very cold.
2 The tank hose 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 checked just by applying soapy water to the valve and opening it slightly. If there is a leak, it would cause bubbles to foam from around the valve. If this happens, check the connection hose at the nut and the valve area. The connecting nut should be re-tightened if you detect any leaks in the area of the valve, and afterward perform the leak checking procedure once more. Persistent leaks mean that the connecting hose and nut will need to be replaced. However, if replacing the hose and nut still does not stop the leak, the tank should be replaced.
4 Open the valve all the way to allow the gas to fill the connecting hose. Afterward you could start the forklift and continue working.
