Quick Change Propane Safety Valve
The Problem: Liquified Propane while changing forklift LPG cylinders
Changing a LPG cylinder on a forklift can sometimes give a forklift operator a big surprise! The seal in the cylinder valve can fail causing liquid propane gas to spray over the hand or face faster than they can react. Liquid propane vaporizes quickly (-42 degrees C or -44 degrees F) and will cause extreme frostbite if it contacts the skin.
The Solution: Placing a shut-off valve on the hose with the Propane Coupler to prevent the LPG from escaping back on to the forklift operator and escaping in to the surrounding environment.
Cormack Propane Safety Valve Closed:
Shuts off LP Gas next to the propane coupler to prevent it from coming back through the hose if the coupler seal fails.
Cormack Propane Safety Valve Opened:
Once the propane coupler has been installed and the lever is then opened the lever handle will prevent anyone from removing the Propane coupler. The lever must be closed before the propane coupler can be loosened off.
