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 rear of the operator. The tanks, that look a lot like beer kegs, have to be replaced every so often as they have a limited lifespan. Forklift operators must utilize caution when handling propane tanks. Compressed gases are really hazardous, specially since the gas is flammable. Use care when removing and replacing propane tank to avoid injury.

1 To change a propane tank, first stop the lift truck while leaving the engine running, and turn the valve on the tank off. Let the forklift run until the engine dies. This procedure burns off the gas in the transfer hose which connects the engine and the tank. Before taking the next steps, wear the proper safety equipment, such as insulated gloves made of either neoprene or leather. It is important 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 reconnect the holding straps and to reattach the hose at the valve of the tank.
3 You could inspect for leaks by applying soapy water to the valve and slightly opening it. Leaking gas would cause bubbles to foam around the value. If this happens, check 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 after that perform the leak inspection process again. Persistent leaks mean that the nut and connecting hose must be replaced. Then again, 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. Afterward you could start the forklift and resume working.
