Daewoo Propane Forklifts
Change a Propane Tank
Forklifts fueled by propane are common inside warehouse environments. These forklifts have a propane mount situated at the rear of the driver. These tanks have to be replaced periodically since they have limited lifespans. Drivers of forklifts must always use caution when handling propane tanks. Compressed gases are dangerous, especially since the gas is flammable. Always utilize care when removing and replacing propane tank to prevent injury.
1 If there is a need to replace the propane tank, the first step is to stop the forklift, then turn off the tank valve. The forklift should be left on until the engine dies. This process burns the gas off inside the transfer hose which connects the tank and the engine. Prior to taking the second steps, wear the proper safety equipment, like insulated gloves made of either leather or neoprene. It is essential for you to protect your skin from contact with the compressed gas, which is very cold.
2 Disconnect the hose from the tank and take off the holding straps to remove the tank. When you put 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 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 occurs, check 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 after that perform the leak checking process again. Persistent leaks mean that both the nut and connecting hose should be replaced. Then again, if replacing the nut and hose still does not stop the leak, the tank should be replaced.
4 Lastly, open the valve all the way to enable the gas to fill the connecting hose. After that you can start the lift truck and resume working.
