NITROGEN EXPLAINED
AIR CONSISTS OF THE FOLLOWING GASSES
78% Nitrogen 21% Oxygen 1% TRACE GASSES ( See Picture Below)
Lets get into some Facts
Less corrosion slower rate of pressure loss 100% Nitrogen is not flammable
Benefits of Nitrogen:
Lets put the benefits into perspective:
A tyre inflated with normal Air already has a high percentage of 78% Nitrogen Currently most vehicles come standard fitted with alloy wheels, which cannot rust Not being flammable is a bit of an advantage, but only in certain scenarios
Lets get a bit more Technical:
Nitrogen Machines that are used by Tyre Fitment Centres can only generate 95% Nitrogen. If it were possible to vacuum all the “Normal Air containing 78% Nitrogen” from a tyre and then inflate with 95% Nitrogen, this tyre would still only have 17% more Nitrogen than a tyre filled with “Normal Air containing 78% Nitrogen”
But wait a minute:
Tyres should never be subjected to a vacuum in an effort to eliminate the Oxygen. Distorting the tyre ( As shown in the picture below) can be as detrimental to the internal structure of the tyre as running over potholes and road hazards.
This 17% increase in Nitrogen does NOT mean you are going to have:
Our Tip:
Rather spend your money on Wheel Alignment and Balancing, you will actually prolong your tyre life and improve your vehicle’s handling and fuel consumption.
Dont agree with this Opinion??
Search the internet to see if you can find any formula that calculates how much you can save by using NITROGEN
NITROGEN THUS MAKE UP THE LARGEST PART IN THE AIR WE BREATHE, WHICH IS THE VERY SAME AIR USED TO INFLATE TYRES
17% Less Corrosion 17% Less Pressure Loss 17% Less Heat Generation 17% Longer Tyre Life
