Komatsu Dual Fuel Forklifts

Komatsu Dual Fuel Forklifts

Dual Fuel Engine
The Dual Fuel engine is a type of engine which utilizes a mixture of gas fuel or diesel fuel or can operate off of diesel by its self. The dual fuel engine is not capable of running on gas alone. These engines do not have ignition systems and do not use spark plugs.

Because diesel is not a pure gas, and it is not a pure diesel designed engine, it has some disadvantages in the department of fuel efficiency, as well as Methane slippage.. For example, the fuel efficiency can be 5% to 8% less than in a comparable lean-burn, spark-ignited engine at 100% load. It can even be lower or higher loads.

Lift Truck Classification and Fuel Sources
There are certain recycling materials handling applications that could prove really challenging for lift trucks. For example, scrap metal is amongst these problems. In order to successfully handle items like this needs using the correct type of machinery for the job.

There are 7 major lift truck classes, including power sources like hydrogen fuel cell, liquid propane gas, diesel, electric and gasoline. The power source is linked to some of these specific classes. The main power sources for forklifts include Gasoline, Battery, Diesel, Fuel Cell and Propane.

Electric powered trucks are the most common, mostly Class I, II and class III forklifts. Internal combustion engines are more common in Classes IV and V. The most common electric power source is the lead-acid battery. Amongst internal combustion trucks, approximately over 90% are propane powered.

The most popular power source for lift trucks is battery. Battery powered models make up around 60% of the new forklifts sold in the USA. Their benefits consist of: quiet operation, less maintenance requirements, the ability to be utilized outdoors and inside with no harmful emissions.
