Daewoo Propane Forklifts

Daewoo Propane Forklifts

Change a Propane Tank
Propane powered forklifts are frequently used inside warehouses. The forklift is made with the propane tank mounted at the rear of the operator. The tanks, which look a lot like beer kegs, have to be replaced from time to time as they have a limited lifespan. Drivers of forklifts should use care when handling propane tanks. Compressed gases are really hazardous, particularly because 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 forklift while leaving the engine running, and turn off the valve on the tank. Let the forklift run until the engine dies. This procedure burns off the gas in the transfer hose that connects the tank and the engine. Before taking the next steps, put on the correct safety equipment, like insulated gloves made of either neoprene or leather. It is essential for you to protect your skin from touching the compressed gas, that is very cold.
2 The hose of the tank has to be disconnected, followed by removing the tank from its holding straps. 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 could be checked simply 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 valve area and the connection hose at the nut. The connecting nut should be re-tightened if you detect any leaks in the area of the valve, and after that do the leak checking procedure once more. Persistent leaks mean that both the nut and connecting hose will have to be replaced. Nonetheless, if replacing the hose and nut still does not stop the leak, the tank should be replaced.
4 Finally, open the valve all the way to allow the gas to fill the connecting hose. After that you can start the forklift and continue working.
