Nitrogen Tire Inflation
Filling your tires with nitrogen is an excellent alternative to air. Nitrogen is a dry and inert. It is used in mission critical vehicles such as those of the military, racing vehicles, space shuttles, aircraft, and various heavy equipment vehicles. Nitrogen is less likely to escape from the heated rubber of a tire due to its larger molecules. It is non-flammable and does not expand and contract like oxygen with changes temperatures. Nitrogen also does not allow moisture to form as it is a dry gas. Making sure your tires are pumped to the correct tire pressure whether you are filling with nitrogen or air is important to maintain peak performance of your tires, fuel economy, and vehicle as a whole.
The Basics Behind Nitrogen Tire Inflation Services at Heritage Tire Sales
Ever wonder why your air-filled tires seem to lose air? This happens because the rubber in your tires expands as they heat up and allow air molecules to escape. Oxygen found in the air pumped into your tires oxidizes when contacting hydrogen. Hydrogen can get into your tires, form water, then corrode and rust your wheel. The advantage of nitrogen is that it does allow for moisture to form. This will result in less corrosion to your wheel and subsequently longer life.
