Clark Propane Forklift
There are many types of forklifts that are powered by propane gas. Propane-powered forklifts are very simple to refill. The gas is stored in a pressurized tank on the truck's back. The propane is pushed into the engine, where it is converted into vapor and then the vapor mixes with air. The forklift throttle is utilized to control the flow of vapor. A spark plug ignites the air and vapor mixture creating pressure which moves the pistons. The pistons turn the wheels and power the hydraulic pump.
Propane powered forklifts are recommended for use inside warehouses and other buildings because they are clean burning with low emissions.
What enables a forklift to raise and move heavy objects from one place to another is the hydraulic system. Cylinders, a pump and tubes make up the hydraulic system. The pump forces dense fluid in the tubing and into the cylinders. The pressure build up pushes a piston, which raises the forks. When the forks are lowered by the operator, the hydraulic fluid flows out of the cylinders and back in the pump.
Where maneuverability is required, propane forklifts are the most suitable. Not like an automobile, a forklift makes use of its back wheels to pivot, that allows the forklift to quickly turn on a tight radius.
