What Gas Is Used On A Forklift?

Propane gas is the fuel used to power gas-powered forklift trucks. Offering an efficient, clean burning, and user-friendly fuel solution, propane gas represents an excellent choice for businesses who want to reduce their carbon footprint while also boosting productivity.

There are two different sizes of propane gas bottle for forklift truck applications. Here at innergy, we stock both an 18kg gas bottle and an 11kg FLT propane gas bottle to suit the needs of all our customers.

Benefits Of An LPG Forklift

LPG forklifts are just one kind of forklift truck. There are also diesel and electric-powered models available. Nevertheless, these days, LPG and electric forklifts are most commonly used by businesses, and of these two options, LPG FLTs offer the most benefits.

Across a broad spectrum of sectors, forklift trucks have a vital part to play in managing stock and distribution and moving around goods between locations. Unlike electric-powered FLTs that gradually lose power as the battery runs down, LPG forklifts continue to function optimally right to the end of the propane gas bottle and then it’s simply a case of switching to your refill gas bottle.

LPG models have a lower maintenance requirement when compared with diesel forklifts, saving businesses money in the long run, especially if a large forklift fleet is required. As LPG has a cleaner burn than diesel, companies are able to reduce their carbon footprints by opting for an LPG-powered forklift fleet, achieving their environmental targets while also improving the air quality in the work environment for the workforce.

LPG forklift truck in warehouse

An LPG forklift represents the best option for warehouses and factories where vehicles are used both outdoors and inside the building. Diesel vehicles can only be used in an outdoor environment due to the emissions they produce which restricts their usage and makes them a less versatile and flexible solution for industrial applications.

Since LPG-powered FLTs can be refuelled in minutes by simply swapping the empty gas bottle with a refill, LPG FLTs cause no downtime, ensuring that warehouse production can continue smoothly and without interruption. This is a great improvement over electric-powered FLTs which need to be charged for extended periods of time, resulting in significant delays in work production, or larger numbers of forklifts which increase capital costs.

With all of these benefits in mind, it’s easy to see why LPG-powered forklifts are such a popular choice with all kinds of businesses.
