A new TireSaver Nitrogen Tire Inflation System uses membrane technology to purify air into a stream of high-purity nitrogen that can be taken straight to any vehicle quickly and safely. Released by the Racor Div. of Parker Hannifin Corp., the system is said to extend tire life by reducing premature failure of tires caused by oxygen and moisture.
According to the company, nitrogen inflation can help tires maintain consistent pressure, extend tire life, improve fuel efficiency, eliminate rim corrosion, and prevent tire auto-ignition. Features include two stages of high efficiency prefiltration and oil removal filtration; optional auto-inflator system; and portable, mobile or wall mounted designs.
