Noblelift’s new Q Series lithium iron phosphate LFP electric forklift
Noblelift’s latest launch is the lithium iron phosphate LFP/LiFePO4 electric 60Q and 70Q Series forklift It is designed with IP4 rating to be waterproof and used in indoor and outdoor applications while being emissions-free, cost-effective, and designed for energy proficiency. Offering high levels of productivity, it is suitable for high-density, high throughput warehouses, allowing them to keep up with growing order volumes and can be used in facilities that are regulated by the FDA, EPA, and OSHA.
Available in 6000-7000lb load capacities with double or triple stage mast of up to 255in (21.25ft), the Noblelift Q series lithium-iron forklifts deliver reduced energy consumption and faster cycle times to help warehouses move large inventories efficiently while having a safer more stable thermal chemical compound of iron-phosphate to avoid overheating and or explosion. It is designed to perform heavy duty applications with equivalent performances of traditional IC trucks.
The forklifts can complete 10,000 cycles with a 2.5 hour charge. The batteries are more compact and energy-dense than lead-acid, which allows them to be more efficient. Unlike lead-acid, the cells are sealed shut, requiring no water maintenance. In tests, Noblelift says its lithium forklift reduced energy costs and charging frequency offering more productive time and less time idle at the charging station.
The battery is maintenance-free and does not require watering, gassing, and cooling down. As an example, Noblelift says that a lead acid battery forklift used in a single shift might have a life expectancy of 3-5 years (1500 cycles over 300 workdays per year): a lithium iron phosphate battery, in comparison, has a life expectancy of 10 years or more (10,000 cycles).
