Komatsu Dual Fuel Forklifts
Dual Fuel Engine
Dual Fuel or DF Engines are the kind of engines which can work on a mixture of gas fuel or diesel fuel or it could work on diesel fuel alone. Duel Fuel engines are not able to work on gas alone because they do not have an ignition system, nor do they have any spark plugs.
As the engine is not a pure diesel engine and diesel is not a pure gas, this machinery does suffer from poor fuel efficiency and Methane slippage. For example, the fuel efficiency could be 5% to 8% less than in a comparable spark-ignited, lean burn engine at 100 percent load. It can even be lower or higher loads.
Lift Truck Fuel Sources and Classifications
There are some recycling materials handling applications that can prove extremely difficult for lift trucks. For instance, scrap metal is amongst these issues. In order to successfully handle items like this requires using the right type of machinery for the task.
In this write-up, the 7 major lift truck classes are discussed, including the power sources like liquid propane gas, hydrogen fuel cell, diesel, electric and gasoline. The power source is linked to several of these particular classes. The main power sources for forklifts include Diesel, Gasoline, Battery, Propane and Fuel Cell.
The most common overall are electric powered trucks, mainly in Class I, II and class III forklifts. In Classes IV and V, internal combustion trucks are more popular. The most popular electric power source is the lead-acid battery. Among internal combustion trucks, about over 90% are powered by propane.
The most common power source for lift trucks is battery. Battery powered units make up approximately 60% of the new forklifts sold in the USA. Their benefits consist of: quiet operation, less maintenance requirements, the ability to be used indoors and outside with no harmful emissions.
