Daewoo Propane Forklifts
Change a Propane Tank
Forklifts powered by propane are common inside warehouse environments. These forklifts have a propane mount located at the back of the driver. These tanks have to be replaced from time to time since they have limited lifespans. Forklift operators should utilize care when handling propane tanks. Compressed gases are dangerous, particularly since the gas is flammable. Use care when replacing and removing propane tank to avoid being injured.
1 To change a propane tank, first stop the forklift while leaving the engine running, and turn the valve on the tank off. Let the forklift run until the engine dies. This procedure burns off the gas inside the transfer hose which connects the engine and the tank. Before taking the second steps, wear the correct safety equipment, such as insulated gloves made of either leather or neoprene. It is very vital for you to protect your skin from contact with the compressed gas, that is very cold.
2 The tank hose has to be disconnected, followed by removing the tank from its holding straps. When putting in a new tank, reattach the holding straps and reconnect the hose at the valve of the tank by tightening the nut.
3 You can inspect for leaks by applying soapy water to the valve and slightly opening it. Leaking gas will cause bubbles to froth around the value. 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 area of the valve, and afterward perform the leak inspection procedure all over again. Persistent leaks mean that both the connecting hose and nut must be replaced. Nonetheless, if replacing the nut and hose still does not stop the leak, the tank should be replaced.
4 Lastly, open the valve all the way to allow the gas to fill the connecting hose. After that you could start the lift truck and continue working.
