Hydraulic Pumps, Valves and Cylinders

Many forklifts are driven using liquid propane. While several facilities would have refuelling capabilities on location, several will have cylinders brought to their office instead. Whenever a lift truck runs out of fuel, the cylinders are changed. Some cautions and training is essential if dealing with propane in view of the fact that it is a highly flammable material.

PPE likewise known as Personal Protective Equipment, should be worn whenever refilling or changing a forklift cylinder. The liquid is very cold and could cause burning or irritation when it comes into skin contact. At all times putting on thick leather gloves will help protect hands. Goggles or other standard eyewear together with a face shield is likewise highly recommended. Having a fire extinguished within the immediate vicinity is likewise suggested before the refuelling process begins.

Make sure that the surroundings are safe from any lit cigarettes or open fires. Find the fill valve on the cylinder and take out the cap. Afterward you can attach the fill line to the fill valve. Once the fill line is in place, cautiously open the bleed valve. This would be a small round knob on the cylinder which is usually brass coloured. A hissing sound can escape when the valve is open and this is normal so long as it is only air being vented and not actual propane.

Open the fill valve on the fill line extremely gradually, listening for any leaks around the connection point. Once positive there are no leaks, the valve can then be opened more. The sound of propane entering the tank must be easy to hear. By no means leave the tank unattended when refuelling and look at the bleeder valve through the process. A spray of white propane gas will emit from the bleeder valve once the tank is full. Turn the fill valve off completely and then close the bleeder valve. Really unhurriedly and carefully remove the fill line from the tank. Watch for any excess gas caught in the coupling that will be expelled when the seal is broken. It must only be a small amount of gas and is normal. Put back the protective cap on the fill valve. Double check all valves are absolutely closed. The tank is now ready and full to use.
