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 behind the operator. These tanks have to be replaced every so often because they have limited lifespans. Forklift drivers should always utilize care when handling propane tanks. Compressed gases are very dangerous, particularly because the gas is flammable. Always use care when removing and replacing propane tank to prevent being injured.

1 To change a propane tank, first stop the forklift while leaving the engine running, and turn off the valve on the tank. Let the forklift run until the engine dies. This process burns off the gas inside the transfer hose that connects the engine and the tank. Prior to taking the second steps, wear the correct safety equipment, like for instance insulated gloves made of either neoprene or leather. It is very essential for you to protect your skin from touching the compressed gas, which is extremely cold.
2 The tank hose has to be disconnected, followed by removing the tank from its holding straps. When you put in a new tank, tighten the nut to reconnect the holding straps and to reattach the hose at the valve of the tank.
3 Leaks can be inspected just by applying soapy water to the valve and slightly opening it. 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 must be re-tightened if you detect any leaks around the valve area, and then perform the leak checking procedure again. Persistent leaks mean that the connecting hose and nut must be replaced. Nevertheless, if replacing the hose and nut still does not stop the leak, the tank will have to be replaced.
4 Lastly, open the valve all the way to allow the gas to fill the connecting hose. Then you can start the forklift and continue working.
