Propane Gas – Benefits for Using Propane for Forklifts!

Diesel and gasoline may be popular fuels for vehicles, but they may not be the

safest and most cost-efficient option for running forklifts. In that case, there is

propane for forklifts, and this can be a better option than electric forklifts.

Around 600,000 forklifts in the US warehouses are powered by propane, and for

many good reasons. Here are some of them:

Minimal emissions – Propane for forklifts produce minimal carbon emissions

compared to vehicles that run on gasoline. Otherwise known as LPG,

propane is a clean and approved fuel that is listed in the Energy Policy Act

of 1992 and the 1990 Clean Air Act as a clean-burning fossil fuel. The US

Environmental Protection Agency tested the fuel and found that vehicles

running on propane produce 30 to 90 percent less carbon monoxide and

approximately 50 percent less toxins and other smog-causing emissions

than those running on gasoline.

Safer for workers – Carbon monoxide poisoning can be fatal, and it can

occur when emissions are trapped in an enclosed space. Propane for

forklifts is nontoxic and it will not harm water or soil. Moreover, it may

help reduce the incidents of carbon monoxide poisoning, too. Propane

forklifts are manufactured to meet the strictest national safety

specifications and they come with an automatic shut-off mechanism in case

of an accident. This way, the flow of LPG is halted before it can endanger

workers or the facility.

Save time, increase productivity –Propane for forklifts is supplied to the

vehicle via cylinders, which are easy to replace and safe to refill compared

to natural gas tanks. In most cases, a cylinder can power a forklift for up to

eight hours, which is lengthy enough for an entire shift. You can simply

switch to a new cylinder for a new shift. And in case of a power outage, you

do not have to worry about a forklift running low on batteries.

Cost-effective – A study was done in 2005 to analyze the costs of running a

forklift on propane and compared it with that of electric forklifts. It was

found that running costs are lower than electric forklifts by a few cents, and

while that seems minimal, it can be greater when you apply that to an

entire year of using multiple forklifts in your business.
