The forklift manufacturer will explain to you that all decomposed parts of the electric forklift should be cleaned in time. When cleaning each oil cylinder, it is best to clean with gasoline; the brake system should be cleaned with brake fluid or alcohol; for cleaning other parts, cleaning agents can be selected according to the situation, but it must be guaranteed to remove oil or other dirt, rust, and easy to use. examine.
Basic requirements for electric forklift parts cleaning:
Guaranteed to meet the cleanliness requirements for electric forklift parts? Various parts in the work have different requirements for cleaning. The cleaning requirements in assembly are that the fitting parts are higher than the non-fitting parts, the moving fitting parts are higher than the static fitting parts, and the precision fitting parts are higher than the non-precision fitting parts; for the surface of sprayed and bonded workpieces, the cleaning requirements are very high. When cleaning, different cleaning agents and cleaning methods must be used according to different requirements to ensure the cleaning quality required by the parts. To prevent corrosion of electric forklift parts, forklift manufacturers do not allow any degree of corrosion on precision parts. When the parts need to be parked for a period of time after cleaning, the anti-rust ability of the cleaning solution or other anti-rust measures should be considered to prevent corrosion of the parts.

How to ensure safe operation? Prevent causing flames or oil and dirt pollution to the environment? How to pay attention to economic benefits? Under the guarantee of the above conditions, the economic effect should be considered in terms of improving work efficiency and reducing costs.
What is the basic method of electric forklift parts cleaning?
Electric forklifts use alkaline solution to degrease. Adding an emulsifier (liquid soap, etc.) to the alkaline solution has a good effect on cleaning oil stains. The concentration of the alkaline solution used for cleaning should be moderate. Generally, 1.0kg of caustic soda and 0.2kg of liquid soap can be added to 100kg of water. The method of alkali boiling can also be used, that is, the parts are boiled in an alkali solution heated to 70C~90C. Generally, iron and steel parts should be boiled and washed for 10-15 minutes, rinsed with hot water after taking them out, and then dried for later use. Because alkali has a corrosive effect on metals, active metals such as aluminum alloys should not be cleaned with strong alkali. They can be cleaned with a solution prepared by adding 0.15kg sodium silicate and 0.2g liquid soap to 100kg water.

Electric forklifts use organic solvents to remove oil. Forklift manufacturers suggest that organic solvents can dissolve various oil stains without damaging parts, and are good degreasers. Most of the organic solvents used in maintenance are gasoline, kerosene, diesel and so on. These oils can meet the requirements of mechanical repair and assembly without special equipment, but the cost is high and uneconomical. For cleaning with special requirements, such as expensive instruments, surface treatment of bonded parts, etc., organic solvents such as alcohol acetone can be used. This type of solvent has strong degreasing ability, good volatility, and high cleaning quality, but it is not economical.
Cleaning of non-metallic parts of electric forklift: Forklift manufacturer’s rubber parts (brake leather, apron, etc.), should be cleaned with alcohol or brake fluid; it is strictly forbidden to use gasoline, alkali solution and other cleaning fluids to prevent parts from swelling and deterioration. Brake pads and clutch friction pads should be cleaned with gasoline and then dried before use. Leather parts of electric forklifts (such as leather oil seals, etc.) can generally be used after wiping them with a dry cloth.
