Nitrogen for Tyres

If you are using large heavy-duty trucks in mining or other rugged business quests like construction,or high-riskactivities like motor racing or flying jets, it is imperative that any tyres involved are inflated with nitrogen to reduce the risk from critical air leaks when the vehicle’s tyres are under maximum duress.

Resistant to Leakage and Temperature Fluctuation

Due to the composition of nitrogen it is resistant to leakage; this is because nitrogen molecules find it harder to escape through the tyre’s rubber molecules, which is why it is an excellent choice for vehicles and heavy-duty equipment where precise or constant pressure is critical.

Nitrogen is also more resistant to heat build-up and reduces the risks from potential freezing at high altitudes, where tyres may be difficult to change or service due to the remoteness of the location or application.

Critical Applications

In addition, unlike compressed air, nitrogen is an inert gas that does not react with other materials, so is resistant to corrosion andtherefore provides an extra tier of safety where critical applications are involved.

Using bottled nitrogen is costly and, for more remote locations, can be difficult and expensive to transport, which can prohibit its use. This is where Oxair can assist.

 

Minimum Maintennce

At Oxair we manufacture nitrogen plants for the tyre industry which are cheap to run and once installed require minimum maintenance. A range of options are available from standard generators to bespoke solutions, with a choice of between 95.0% and 99.99% nitrogen purity.

The Oxair nitrogen generators are built to last and are operator friendly, which means minimal maintenance and labour interaction. On the smaller Oxair systems the process valves will last between six and eight years before maintenance whereas on the larger systems the actuators can withstand four million cycles before requiring maintenance.

Oxair’s nitrogen generators are efficient and compact, making them the ideal solution for tyre depots, motor racing establishments, airlines, garages, mining and construction sites. Please contact us today for more information.
