As people who drive forklift trucks in confined spaces know all too well, the exhaust fumes can be a health hazard, especially carbon monoxide, a colourless, odourless gas which causes tiredness, headaches and nausea.
Long term exposure to high levels of carbon monoxide is bad for the health of forklift truck drivers and also makes them more likely to be involved in accidents.
Blackthorn’s range of in-line catalytic converters is designed to be easy to fit to a wide variety of forklift trucks which are already in use.
In most cases, the reason for fitment will be to upgrade a forklift which was not fitted with a catalytic converter when new, however an in-line catalytic converter can also be a useful solution where the original equipment catalytic converter has failed and a direct replacement is either impossible to obtain or prohibitively expensive.
You can see the full specification of Blackthorn’s in-line catalytic converters for forklift trucks in this downloadable PDF.
