About the maintenance of the forklift battery


Traction battery for electric forklifts, also known as forklift battery, as a forklift driver, must follow the correct operating rules, safe use, keep in mind the following basic ten points:
1. The battery will generate hydrogen gas, which may cause an explosion. It is strictly forbidden to smoke near the battery. Any flame or spark is strictly prohibited. Always store the battery in a well-ventilated place when storing or charging, but do not use it at the air outlet to avoid corrosion caused by acid mist.
2. The battery liquid contains corrosive liquid, which may cause severe burns. Avoid contact with skin, eyes or clothes. If accidents occur, please rinse with plenty of water immediately and seek medical attention.
3. When inspecting or servicing the battery, use rubber gloves to avoid electric shock.
4. Always keep the battery surface or connections clean. Dust, impurities, etc. must be cleaned with a damp cloth, otherwise it will leak electricity or even cause a fire.
5. When cleaning the battery, be sure to use a damp cloth, not a dry cloth.
6. Do not connect tools between the positive and negative terminals of the battery.
7. When charging, the temperature of the electrolyte should not exceed 50 degrees Celsius to avoid damage caused by electrolyte overflow. Pay special attention during the summer day.
