  • AS 4983-2010   Gas fuel systems forklifts and industrial engines

  • AS/NZS 1425:2013 LP Gas fuel systems for vehicle engines

  • AS/NZS 2739:2009  Natural gas (NG) fuel systems for vehicle engines

For LPG powered  forklifts working in Confined or poorly ventilated areas IMPCO recommends;

  • the use of a closed loop fuel management system and three way catalyst  

  • contacting the manufacture or supplier for advice on the suitability of a forklift for your needs and operating environment

  • and reading Worksafe Victoria guidance note on the dangers of poorly ventilated Workplaces,  See excerpt below 

The Dangers Of Poorly Ventilated Workplaces

The 1983 National Health and Medical Research Council (NHRC) publication Recommended Practice in the Operation of Liquefied Petroleum Gas Powered Engines in Confined and/or Poorly Ventilated Spaces provides guidance on safe work procedures for the use of LPG forklift trucks in poorly ventilated places.

 

The NHMRC recommendations focus on carburetion systems, fuel, tuning and air quality.

The work procedure should follow the NHRC recommendations and make sure that the exposure standard for carbon monoxide is not exceeded.

 

The following points are based on the NH&.MRC recommendations and should be included in a safe work procedure:

 

Test the exhaust emission levels in the tail pipe of the forklift truck

  • Make sure the forklift is tuned to yield an exhaust gas containing:

    • not more than 0.2% (2000 ppm) carbon monoxide at idling.

    • not more than 0.1 % (1000 ppm) carbon monoxide at speed (no load).
