Forklift Fuel Tank - The majority of fuel tanks are built; nevertheless several fuel tanks are made by trained craftspeople. Restored tanks or custom tanks could be used on automotive, tractors, motorcycles and aircraft.
There are a series of certain requirements to be followed when making fuel tanks. Usually, the craftsman sets up a mockup so as to know the precise shape and size of the tank. This is often done using foam board. Next, design issues are dealt with, including where the seams, drain, outlet, baffles and fluid level indicator would go. The craftsman needs to determine the alloy, thickness and temper of the metal sheet he would make use of to construct the tank. When the metal sheet is cut into the shapes required, numerous pieces are bent in order to create the basic shell and or the ends and baffles for the fuel tank.
Numerous baffles in racecars and aircraft hold "lightening" holes. These flanged holes have two purposes. They reduce the weight of the tank while adding weight to the baffles. Openings are added toward the ends of construction for the fuel pickup, the filler neck, the fluid-level sending unit and the drain. Sometimes these holes are added when the fabrication method is finish, other times they are created on the flat shell.
Afterward, the ends and baffles could be riveted into place. The rivet heads are often soldered or brazed so as to prevent tank leaks. Ends can next be hemmed in and flanged and brazed, or soldered, or sealed using an epoxy type of sealant, or the ends could likewise be flanged and then welded. After the brazing, welding and soldering has been done, the fuel tank is checked for leaks.
