Nitrogen inflation is a process of filling a vehicle's tyres with nitrogen gas instead of compressed air. Nitrogen is an inert gas that is already present in the air we breathe, but it can be isolated and purified to create a more stable and consistent gas for filling tyres.
There are several potential benefits to using nitrogen inflation for tyres:
Reduced tyre pressure loss: Nitrogen molecules are larger than oxygen molecules, which means that they are less likely to leak out of the tyre. This can help to maintain tyre pressure over a longer period of time, reducing the need for frequent top-offs.
Improved tyre life: Nitrogen inflation can help to reduce oxidation and degradation of the tyre rubber, which can help to extend the life of the tyre.
Increased fuel efficiency: Properly inflated tyre can help to improve fuel efficiency, and nitrogen inflation can help to maintain more consistent and stable tyre pressure, which can improve fuel efficiency over the long term.
Improved safety: Maintaining proper tyre pressure is essential for safe driving, and nitrogen inflation can help to reduce the risk of tyre failure or blowouts due to underinflation.
Overall, nitrogen inflation can be a good option for drivers who want to maintain more consistent tyre pressure, improve fuel efficiency, and extend the life of their tyre. It is important to note, however, that regular tyre maintenance is still necessary even with nitrogen-filled tyre, including checking tyre pressure and inspecting tyre for damage or wear.
