At Essex Tyre Company Ltd, we are concerned with every aspect of tyre efficiency. For this reason we offer nitrogen inflation.
Because nitrogen permeates from your tyres at a tenth of the rate of compressed air, the effects on your vehicle will be much slower. This means that your vehicle will benefit from superior on-road handling, a reduction of up to 5% in fuel consumption and an increase of up to 25% in tyre life span. Nitrogen inflation is also environmentally friendly, significantly reducing your C02 emissions.
The advantage of pure nitrogen inflation is fairly simple: compressed air is 79% nitrogen, which leaves 21% of impurities. Oxygen and water vapour contained within compressed air leak through tyres. This causes a decrease in pressure and can cause corrosion in the long run. This in turn placed more strain on the vehicle and increases running costs. But using pure nitrogen, these problems are averted.
