Daewoo Propane Forklifts

Daewoo Propane Forklifts

Change a Propane Tank
Propane fueled forklifts are commonly used in warehouses. The lift truck is made with the propane tank mounted at the back of the driver. The tanks, which look a lot like beer kegs, need to be replaced every so often as they have a limited lifespan. Forklift operators should utilize caution when handling propane tanks. Compressed gases are really hazardous, especially since the gas is flammable. Always use care when replacing and removing propane tank to prevent injury.

1 To change a propane tank, first stop the lift truck and leave the engine running, and turn off the valve on the tank. Let the forklift run until the engine dies. This process burns off the gas in the transfer hose which connects the engine and the tank. Prior to taking the next steps, wear the correct safety equipment, like for example insulated gloves made of either leather or neoprene. It is essential 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 the holding straps off to remove the tank. When putting in a new tank, tighten the nut to reattach the holding straps and to reconnect the hose at the valve of the tank.
3 Leaks could be inspected simply by applying soapy water to the valve and slightly opening it. If there is a leak, it would cause bubbles to froth from around the valve. If this happens, inspect the valve area and the connection hose at the nut. Re-tighten the connecting nut if you detect any leaks in the valve area, and afterward perform the leak inspection process again. Persistent leaks mean that the connecting hose and nut must be replaced. Then again, if replacing the nut and hose still does not stop the leak, the tank must be replaced.
4 Lastly, open the valve all the way to enable the gas to fill the connecting hose. Then you can start the lift truck and resume working.
