Mobile Tire Services: Are Nitrogen Inflated Truck Tires The Future of Mobile Tire Services?

Thursday, September 9th, 2010
Mobile Tire Service

Don't be surprised if the next time your truck needs mobile tire service if they use nitrogen to inflate the tires.

Imagine being stuck on the side of the road with a flat tire.  Now imagine, you have more than one blowout – or imagine that you need roadside assistance.  Mobile Tire Service is extremely important – especially when it comes to Semis, trucks, big rigs, 18 wheelers, buses, freightliners, tractor trailers, low boys and reefers.

A new concept is being discussed in the world of trucking – pure nitrogen may replace air as a superior medium for inflating tires.

First, before you think it sounds crazy – don’t worry – you’re not putting anything new into your tires.  Nitrogen is already in the air that is put into your tires.  Currently air is about 78% nitrogen already.  The air that is put into tires is approximately 21% oxygen and 1% trace elements.

Nitrogen generators used in tire inflation systems don’t manufacture nitrogen – but instead they remove oxygen from the air leaving approximately 95% – 98% nitrogen to fill the tires.

The most important benefit to nitrogen tire inflation is that it reduces natural pressure loss in tires.  Nitrogen molecules are larger than oxygen molecules and this permeate tires more slowly.  Pure nitrogen contains almost no moisture which eliminates the chances of water accumulating inside tires.  Moisture in tires can corrode steel wheels, freeze tire valves and cause oxidation.

More and more fleets of trucks, tractor trailers, buses, freightliners, low boys and reefers are switching over to nitrogen filled tires in an attempt to maintain their trucks more efficiently.
