TireSaver can extend tire life up to 25%
Jan 1, 2005 12:00 PM
New from Parker Hannifin Corp are the TireSaver nitrogen generators for truck tire filling. By using dry nitrogen gas instead of compressed air to inflate tires, one will maintain proper inflation pressure and prevent one of the major causes of tire failures. That's why many tire manufacturers now recommend using nitrogen for tire inflation.
Dry nitrogen gas will extend tire life by up to 25% and will improve fuel efficiency by up to 4%. In addition, it provides more consistent tire pressure and reduces or eliminates the need to check tire pressures and top off tires. Other benefits of inflating tires with nitrogen include cooler running temperatures and elimination of rim corrosion and stem clogging.
Four different systems are available to service applications from a small repair garage to large fleet service stations. These wall-mountable systems are designed to produce nitrogen gas from standard compressed air. The systems are shipped complete with an integral two-stage system of protective pre-filters and a carbon filter enabling the tire inflation system to be used on any compressed air system.
