If you’re thinking of using LPG to power your forklift trucks, you’ll be pleased to know that it’s a cleaner and more environmentally friendly option. By using LPG, you can avoid issues with battery disposal, harmful fumes and messy spillages.
There are two options for storing your LPG supply; gas cylinders or a bulk LPG tank. Here’s some information to help you decide which option is best for your business requirements....
Bulk LPG tanks
Installing a Calor LPG bulk tank means you can large amounts of LPG on site, depending on the size of your business, and enjoy the benefit of less frequent fuel deliveries, so your operational activity can remain at premium levels throughout the working day. What’s more, with our innovative Think Tank® automatic re-ordering technology, you won’t have to waste time organising fuel deliveries as Think Tank automatically orders a top up for you and is delivered by one of our nationwide fleet of tankers. Simple.
You will also have the reassurance of extensive maintenance and testing programmes, as well as a 24/7 emergency call out service – all included in the cost.
Refilling from a bulk tank is quick and easy. Simply fill up from the pump – there’s no need to remove the cylinder. It’s just like filling up with diesel but without the mess. Plus, we’ll even train up to six operators how to refuel completely free of charge.
The cost of installing a bulk tank may be less than you think, and by using a bulk tank, you’ll benefit from a lower price per litre. To find out more about installing a bulk LPG tank to power your fleet of fork lift trucks, or to arrange an appointment with one of our energy specialists, please get in touch and a member of a customer care team will be happy to help.
Our gas cylinders (available in 12kg and 18kg capacities) may be a more suitable option if you’re not required to use your forklift trucks regularly or if you do not have the space for an LPG tank. Gas cylinders are a compact alternative to a bulk tank and come with all of the other fantastic benefits of using LPG as your forklift truck fuel supply.
It couldn’t be easier to order and exchange your gas cylinders; for more information or to order, just call 0800 662 663 to speak to one of our helpful team. Alternatively, many of our nationwide stockists operate a “Milk Round”, making daily deliveries to customers. Use our interactive find a stockist tool to find a gas cylinder stockist in your local area.
