Cold storage industry

Forklift characteristics

With the rapid development of economy, there are more and more cold storages below 0 to -20℃ in refrigeration / logistics / aquatic products and other industries. As an essential handling equipment in the storage, cold-storage forklift has been paid more and more attention in the industry, especially electric cold storage forklift which has become the first choice of food industry and cold chain logistics companies.

The biggest difference between a cold storage forklift and an ordinary forklift is that it must frequently enter and exit the cold storage and go outside the storage. Therefore, frost and rust prevention are the main problems.

Ordinary forklift (used by most enterprises at present) will cause some problems due to frost: the frost from the warehouse will soon turn into dew, and the dew in the warehouse will soon turn into frost, resulting in problems in the electrical system and hydraulic system of forklift trucks. However, if the forklift is kept in wet state for a long time, the rust prevention of the mechanical parts of the forklift is also required to be very high, otherwise it may cause quality problems of the forklift and the goods.

  • Tonnage: 2 t and below, generally 1.5-2 t;
  • Frequent entering and exiting cold storage operations, large temperature difference between inside and outside, high requirements for waterproofing electrical components, rust prevention of mechanical parts, and antifreeze performance of hydraulic oil products;
  • Narrow channel in the warehouse, flexible vehicle operation and small stacking right angle channel;
  • The shelves in the warehouse are dense and high,  forklift gantry should have a good visual field and meet the height, adding the gantry fittings to improve the working efficiency;
  • The forklift has anti-skid performance for the ice road surface in the cold storage, and the structure meets the discharge of condensate;
  • During the operation, the lamp / operator shall be protected to a certain extent (anti-smashing design).

Recommended models

CPD15/18M (three fulcrums)
Safety protection

The protective net of the front overhead guard protects the operator or instrument from being injured by scattered goods; the load-backrest is used to stabilize the unstable goods in the cold storage; the full hydraulic steering system with digital steering synchronizer is adopted, which is flexible, comfortable and highly reliable. Key components such as motor, electric control and switch components shall be equipped according to the working conditions of – 30℃; hydraulic oil, gear oil and lubricating grease shall meet the requirements of low temperature operation; high pressure rubber hose shall be made of materials suitable for low temperature environment.

Low temperature resistant oil products and parts

Key components such as motor, electric control and switch components shall be equipped according to the working conditions of – 30℃; hydraulic oil, gear oil and lubricating grease shall meet the requirements of low temperature operation; high pressure rubber hose shall be made of materials suitable for low temperature environment.

CPD15/20/25/30/35
Rust proof, anti-corrosion and waterproof

The salt spray time of exposed fasteners is 72 hours, with good antirust performance; the protective sleeve of inclined cylinder is used to prevent direct exposure of oil cylinder; the vehicle adopts waterproof AMP connector to prevent short circuit caused by condensate entering; the surface of chain and oil cylinder is coated with special materials for anti-corrosion and anti-rust treatment; the surface of structural parts is painted with special treatment to enhance surface protection; the bottom of frame is designed with leakage hole to dispatch condensate water in time to avoid corrosion caused by ponding.
