Daewoo Propane Forklifts
Change a Propane Tank
Forklifts powered by propane are common in warehouse settings. These forklifts have a propane mount located at the rear of the operator. These tanks have to be replaced from time to time since they have limited lifespans. Forklift drivers should always utilize care when handling propane tanks. Compressed gases are hazardous, particularly because the gas is flammable. Utilize care when removing and replacing propane tank to prevent being injured.
1 If there is a need to replace the propane tank, the first step is to stop the lift truck, then turn off the tank valve. The lift truck should be left on until the engine dies. This procedure burns the gas off inside the transfer hose which 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 leather or neoprene. It is very vital for you to protect your skin from contact with 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, reconnect the holding straps and reconnect the hose at the valve of the tank by tightening the nut.
3 Leaks can be inspected just by applying soapy water to the valve and opening it slightly. If there is a leak, it would cause bubbles to froth from around the valve. If this occurs, check the connection hose at the nut and the valve area. Re-tighten the connecting nut if you detect any leaks around the valve area, and afterward do the leak checking process all over again. Persistent leaks mean that both the connecting hose and nut must be replaced. However, if replacing the nut and hose 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. Then you can start the lift truck and continue operating.
