How to Read a Forklift Propane or LP Bottle Gauge
There are essential safety reasons for forklift drivers to know how to read a forklift propane bottle gauge. The operator has to know when the forklift is running low on gas. Several types of forklifts that are older are designed so that the forks lower to the ground slowly and the equipment automatically shuts off when it is out of fuel. This is really not sage and can lead to product damage and personal injury. Newer kinds of forklifts are designed differently to avoid this from occurring. The operator could utilize a handle that stops the forks from falling when the propane runs out.
1 Know where the propane gauge is located. The gauge looks a lot like the gas gauge on a car. It is a small round object situated either on the propane tank's valve or on the dash of the forklift where the controls and rest of the gauges are located.
2 Make sure to always keep the gauge cover clean so that information behind the glass is legible.
3 Locate the indicator needle at the bottom of the gauge. This needle will show you how much fuel is still in the propane tank.
4 There are two letters on the gauge: E for empty and F for full. When the needle arm touches the letter E, it would mean that the propane tank is totally empty. When the needle arm points at the letter F, it means that the propane tank is completely full.
5 Notice the line in the middle of the gauge. When the needle touches the middle line it means the tank is half full of propane.
6 Note that there are smaller lines halfway between the middle lines. These lines indicate quarters. When the needle arrives at the quarter mark closest to the F, it will mean that there is three-fourths of a tank remaining. When the needle arrives at the quarter mark nearest E, the tank is a quarter full.
