Nitrogen Tire Supply

The Ingersol-Rand NitroGen Nitrogen Tire Inflation System provides better air pressure retention with nitrogen as diffusion is 30% to 40% slower than oxygen. With quicker heat dispersion, you get a cooler running tire, which helps extend tread life and reduce tire failure. Nitrogen also prevents oxidation, which can not only lead to tread separation and belt failure, but when combined with moisture can corrode rims. Filling a tire with nitrogen also significantly slows the chemical aging process of the tire’s rubber components. This leads to fewer catastrophic failures like blowouts. The Nitrogen Tire Inflation Systems are an extension of a facility’s existing compressed air system.
