The sealed fuel system of propane forklifts enhances plant safety. Fuel cylinders and carburetion components are made to strict national code specifications that far exceed the working pressure of propane gas. Propane gas operates with an average of 100-200 p.s.i. compared to CNG’s higher pressure of 2,000-3,000 p.s.i.
Propane has built-in safety features that include an automatic fuel line shut-off system that helps prevent the flow of gas in the event of an accident.
You may choose to refuel onsite, or have your local marketer deliver pre-filled cylinders to your worksite. Call 800-64-CLEAR to request Railroad Commission training on safe propane handling.
