Komatsu Dual Fuel Forklifts

Komatsu Dual Fuel Forklifts

Dual Fuel Engine
Dual Fuel or DF Engines are the type of engines which can work on a mixture of gas fuel or diesel fuel or it can run on diesel fuel alone. Duel Fuel engines are not able to operate on gas alone since they do not posses an ignition system, nor do they possess any spark plugs.

Because the engine is not a pure diesel engine and diesel is not a pure gas, this machine does suffer from Methane slippage and fuel efficiency. Like for example, the fuel efficiency can be 5% to 8% less than in a comparable spark-ignited, lean burn engine at 100% load. It could even be lower or higher loads.

Lift Truck Fuel Sources and Classifications
There are certain applications that have proved difficult for the forklift. For example, scrap metal is amongst these problems. In order to successfully handle items like this requires utilizing the right type of machinery for the task.

In this write-up, the 7 major lift truck classes are discussed, including the power sources like hydrogen fuel cell, liquid propane gas, diesel, electric and gasoline. The power source is linked to several of these particular classes. The main power sources for forklifts consist of Gasoline, Battery, Diesel, Fuel Cell and Propane.

Electric powered trucks are the most common, mainly Class III, III and class I forklifts. Internal combustion engines are more common in Classes V and IV. The most popular electric power source is the lead-acid battery. Among internal combustion trucks, around more than 90 percent are propane powered.

The most common power source for lift trucks is battery. Battery fueled models make up about 60% of the new forklifts sold within the United States. Their benefits include: less maintenance requirements, quiet operation, the ability to be used indoors and outdoors with no harmful emissions.
