Since forklifts and aerial lifts are normally powered by internal combustion engines, combustible fuel is needed to operate. Forklifts and aerial lifts utilize different types of Fuel Systems: LPG fuel system, Gasoline fuel systems and Diesel fuel system. All three systems are comprised of different parts and assemblies: fuel pumps, fuel lines, fuel injectors, LPG regulators, LPG fuel tanks, fuel tanks, and fuel sensors.
LPG Fuel system
LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas, Propane, and Butane) is more commonly used in forklifts and are sometimes used on aerial lifts. Mostly derived from fossil fuel sources, LPG is commonly extracted from natural gas streams and can sometimes be manufactured during the cultivation of petroleum. As it has a boiling point below room temperature, it is normally stored in steel tanks and vessels. These tanks are commonly found in the back of the forklift and placed in the exterior of the machine for safety reasons.
Gasoline Fuel System
Mainly used as fuel by internal combustion engines, gasoline fuel is utilized by forklift engines and aerial engines alike. Derived from petroleum, it is a translucent oil that consists of organic materials extracted by fractional distillation of petroleum. On forklifts and aerial lifts, gasoline fuel is stored on special design gas tanks that are made from either High-density Polyethylene (HDPE) plastic or metal (sheet or aluminium). Each vehicle has a specific system, developed to optimize space.
Diesel Fuel System
Diesel fuel is used on internal combustion engines that uses heat of fuel to ignite and power pistons in the combustion chamber. Compared to other combustion fuel systems (LPG or gasoline), diesel engines have the higher fuel efficiency due to its lower heat exertion.
