CYLINDER OR BULK – WHICH IS THE BEST FOR YOU? A Calor Energy Advisor will recommend a suitable solution based on your current and projected fork lift usage, and the physical layout of your premises. A convenient cylinder solution may suit companies with less frequent fork lift needs. Your Calor Energy Advisor can: • advise how frequently / how many exchange cylinders you will need. • arrange delivery through the Calor Gas Dealer Network. Larger companies with higher needs may require a bulk storage refuelling solution. Calor Solutions for Lower Consumption For businesses who only need a fork lift truck for occasional use (perhaps for loading / unloading weekly orders), an exchangeable cylinder solution is ideal. Calor has a range of cylinders and supply options available: • 18kg and 12kg Cylinders are supplied through our retailer network. • Your Calor Energy Advisor can arrange local delivery.
