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 back of the driver. These tanks have to be replaced from time to time since they have limited lifespans. Drivers of forklifts must utilize caution when handling propane tanks. Compressed gases are hazardous, specially because the gas is flammable. Use care when replacing and removing propane tank to avoid injury.

1 To change a propane tank, first stop the lift truck and leave the engine running, and turn the valve on the tank off. Let the lift truck run until the engine dies. This procedure burns the gas off in the transfer hose which connects the engine and the tank. Before taking the second steps, put on the correct safety equipment, such as insulated gloves made of either neoprene or leather. It is very vital for you to protect your skin from touching the compressed gas, that is extremely cold.
2 Disconnect the hose from the tank and take off the holding straps to remove the tank. When you put in a new tank, reattach the holding straps and reattach the hose at the valve of the tank by tightening the nut.
3 Leaks could be checked just by applying soapy water to the valve and opening it slightly. If there is a leak, it will cause bubbles to froth from around the valve. If this happens, check the valve area and the connection hose at the nut. The connecting nut must be re-tightened if you detect any leaks in the valve area, and after that do the leak inspection procedure again. Persistent leaks mean that the nut and connecting hose must be replaced. Nonetheless, if replacing the nut and hose still does not stop the leak, the tank will have to be replaced.
4 Open the valve all the way to allow the gas to fill the connecting hose. Then you can start the lift truck and resume working.
