Propane Safety program for Forklifts provides basic knowledge of proper cylinder refueling operations by vehicle operators with an emphasis on safety. Liquefied petroleum gas, commonly called LPG or LP gas is a mixture of several hydrocarbon gases. Propane and butane, used separately or in mixtures, are the principal LP gases. Propane is the LP gas most widely used in the USA. Propane is a vapor at normal temperatures and atmospheric pressure. Your gas supplier converts propane to a liquid by a combination of compression and cooling, which greatly reduces space requirements. Approximately 270 gallons of vapor can be converted to one gallon of liquid. Moderate pressure holds the propane in liquid form until needed and of course, a pressure tank is necessary to maintain this pressure. Propane has been a common fuel in homes and businesses since the early 1920s. Today, propane is used extensively for forklifts operating in warehouses because propane's clean burning properties eliminate sludge, carbon, and gum deposits, resulting in lower maintenance and operation costs, as well as reducing harmful exhaust emissions.
