Nitrogen in vehicle tyres

For many years nitrogen has been used to inflate tyres in racing cars, and even tyres on aircraft but what are the benefits of filling your customer vehicle tyres with nitrogen?

There is no doubt about it, Nitrogen inflation is becoming more common as customers demand the service and anybody dealing in tyres will need to consider meeting the demand. In addition, certain new vehicles are coming out of the factory with nitrogen in the tyres as standard, setting the tone for nitrogen filling to become the ‘norm’ in the future.

Two of the main benefits we see are:

  • Slower rate of pressure loss – due to the increased size of the Nitrogen molecule in comparison to oxygen or standard air
  • Less corrosion – because unlike air there is no moisture in pure nitrogen.

The fully-automatic NG90 provides fast, simple operation. Simply connect the hose up to the valve and set the required pressure, and then walk away and get on with another job. The NG90 will automatically purge the tyre and the switch to refill with nitrogen to the pressure selected.

The NG90-4 builds on the fully-automatic nature of the NG90, but offers the added advantage of inflating 4 tyres simultaneously. A larger receiver is included inside the cabinet to cater for the additional nitrogen required, whilst the overall size remains remarkably compact.

Costco Settle On 701XL Evo And 800-2 Combo

Costco Wholesale have chosen the megamount 701XL Evolution Tyre Changer and megaspin 800-2 TFT Balancer as their standard equipment. They have traditionally used the 701 in its conventional form (with lever) and the megaspin 400 as their standard fitment, but with technology moving fast, and taking a lead from their US counterparts where they had already moved onto lever-less fitting and premium spec balancers, the UK operation has chosen the upgrades following extensive trials at their Watford and Thurrock warehouses. Costco, who are solus Michelin and offer an ‘upmarket’ service for their members, including nitrogen inflation and precision balancing, operate warehouses nationwide and are still expanding. They have also chosen the megalift GTF3200 2 Post Lift as their standard lift.
