Specialised forklift incorporates gas detection

Environmental management company Avanti has recently delivered 21 Hyster forklift trucks to five customers across the UK, courtesy of Briggs Equipment.

One of the sites based on Knowsley Industrial Park near Liverpool, deals with liquid waste, fumes from which have the potential to combust. So some of the machines were specified with Pyroban protection, which uses a gas detection system to identify risk in the environment, resulting in immediate shut down of the forklift until the risk has passed.

A nearby site deals with many types of solid waste, so various attachments were required. The solution was to specify quick-release clamps on seven of the forklifts so that attachments could be changed by operatives without needing to call an engineer.
