Daewoo Propane Forklifts

Daewoo Propane Forklifts

Change a Propane Tank
Propane fueled forklifts are normally used in warehouses. The lift truck is designed with the propane tank mounted behind the operator. The tanks, which look much like beer kegs, have to be replaced from time to time since they have a limited lifespan. Forklift operators must utilize care when handling propane tanks. Compressed gases are hazardous, especially because the gas is flammable. Use caution when removing and replacing propane tank to prevent injury.

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 the gas off inside the transfer hose that connects the engine and the tank. Prior to taking the second steps, put on the proper safety equipment, like insulated gloves made of either leather or neoprene. It is essential for you to protect your skin from touching the compressed gas, which is extremely cold.
2 Disconnect the hose from the tank and take the holding straps off to remove the tank. When you put in a new tank, tighten the nut to reattach 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 opening it slightly. If there is a leak, it would cause bubbles to foam from around the valve. If this happens, inspect the connection hose at the nut and the valve area. The connecting nut should be re-tightened if you detect any leaks around the valve area, and then perform the leak checking procedure again. Persistent leaks mean that both the connecting hose and nut must be replaced. However, if replacing the hose and nut still does not stop the leak, the tank would need 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.
