Game-Changing Innovations through Advanced R&D

The innovative MLD low propane fuel gauge for propane forklifts has been created, designed and manufactured by Rotarex SRG. Over decades of service to the LPG industry, SRG has gained a deep level of expertise that enables it to respond quickly to customer requests for innovative solutions that solve operational challenges. MLD is now the latest in a long line of technologically advanced products in its LPG portfolio.

Founded in 1934, the company Schultz Rackow Gastechnik was acquired by Rotarex, SA, in 2000. Now known as Rotarex SRG, it is a world leader in premium quality LPG valves and regulators. Alongside MLD, Rotarex SRG produces a full range of FLT cylinder equipment.


Main Problem Solved by MLD

Historically, there has been no reliable way to know exactly when a propane cylinder is low and about to run out of gas. MLD is the first reliable low propane fuel level detector that senses when the propane changes from the liquid to vapor phase. This occurs when there is enough time for a forklift operator to finish a task and return to the exchange cabinet to replace the cylinder. An alert is sent to the operator to inform them of the low propane level.

Key Benefits of MLD Low Propane Fuel Gauge

  • Propane forklifts never run out of gas
  • Reliable – based on proven, tested technology
  • Saves money – cylinders are only replaced when nearly empty
  • Improves safety – no more breakdowns in the middle of a task
  • Enhances productivity
