The Purity Of Nitrogen In Your Tires Does Matter
Nitrogen in tires is becoming a very popular replacement for air, and for good reason. With proper inflation procedures and adequate purity nitrogen can provide amazing benefits. The major benefit of nitrogen as an inflation medium is its large molecular size which provides better pressure retention than compressed air. To gain the benefits of nitrogen inflation, the in-tire purity must be 95% or higher, which equates to 5% or less oxygen content.
95% in-tire nitrogen purity is the minimum specification recognized and required by:
- All branches of the US Military
- The FAA
- Ford Motor Company
- Almost every industrial application where oxygen level containment is required.
The key is the combination of the product and the technology-refined nitrogen and complete inflation. In St Louis Missouri, Plaza Motor’s certified technicians use state-of-the-art equipment to completely deflate tires to remove all oxygen and then re-inflate them with NitroFill™. But, they don’t stop there. They deflate all tires completely again, then re-inflate them with NitroFill™ exceeding the recommended 95% inflation quotient, the minimum threshold scientifically proven to deliver all the benefits of nitrogen inflation.
Converting to nitrogen in tires can improve your fuel economy between 4 and 10% depending on the type of vehicle you drive. Better tire pressure retention can increase your tire life by 30% or more while dramatically increasing the safety and handling of your vehicle.
Their is no mystery to purity. The higher the purity the better. It’s simple common sense. The small molecules (oxygen) leak out of a tire, the larger ones (nitrogen) don’t.
