Hydraulic Pumps, Valves and Cylinders

Liquid propane cylinders are used on a lot of forklifts. Some facilities are able to refuel their own propane cylinders, however, nearly all would have their cylinders refilled elsewhere and brought to their place of work instead. Whenever a forklift runs out of fuel, the cylinders are changed. Several training and cautions is needed when handling propane as it is a highly flammable material.

PPE likewise known as Personal Protective Equipment, should be worn if changing or refilling a forklift cylinder. The liquid is really cold and can lead to irritation or burning when it comes into skin contact. At all times putting on thick leather gloves would help protect hands. Goggles or other standard eyewear along with a face shield is likewise highly recommended. Having a fire extinguished close at hand is also recommended before the refuelling process starts.

Make sure the lift truck is turned off prior to beginning and extinguish whichever cigarettes or open flames in the area. Look for the fill valve on the cylinder and take out the protective plastic cover, afterward firmly attach the fill line to the fill valve. When the fill line is in place, carefully open the bleed valve. This would be a small spherical knob on the cylinder that is commonly brass coloured. A hissing sound could 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 really unhurriedly, listening for whichever leaks around the connection point. Once certain there are no leaks, the valve could then be opened more. The sound of propane entering the tank should be easy to hear. On no account leave the tank unattended whenever refuelling and look at the bleeder valve throughout the process. A spray of white propane gas will emit from the bleeder valve when the tank is full. Turn the fill valve off totally and then close the bleeder valve. Really slowly and cautiously remove the fill line from the tank. Watch for any excess gas caught in the coupling that would be expelled when the seal is broken. It should only be a small quantity of gas and is normal. Put back the protective cap on the fill valve. Double check all valves are completely closed. The tank is now set and full to utilize.
