The Benefits of Nitrogen Tyre Inflation

Nitrogen Tyre inflation

Nitrogen tyre inflation is now available at the service stations Total Jounieh and Total Nahr Ibrahim

Brief Information:

  • Recent studies have shown that 8 out of 10 tyres travel on the road are under inflated.
  • Nitrogen have a low diffusion rate when compared with Oxygen due to the

Variance in molecular physical properties.

  • Since Nitrogen is mostly an inert gas, it helps reducing temperature rise (that causes sidewall deformation) due to road bed friction by 17-21%.
  • Nitrogen prevents water vapor which is the main culprit to rim damage (rust), to TPMS damage, to valves (pressure loss) and breakage of tire walls (cuts).
  • Nitrogen have a low heat conductivity & a low noise conductivity.

Nitrogen Tyre Inflation Common Applications:

  • Most Motorsport vehicles tyres (Formula 1, Rallye cars, Dragsters, etc….)
  • NASA Space Shuttles tyres.
  • Earth moving equipment tyres.
  • Civilian and Military armored vehicles.
  • Civilian and Military planes tyres.
  • All competition grade bicycle tyres such as in the Tour of France and D’Italia.

Nitrogen inflated Tyres remain inflated for 3 to 4 times longer than those inflated with common Air. Maintaining the proper tyre inflation pressure results in the following benefits:

  • Better handling and road holding (enhance stability at high speeds).
  • Reduced puncture risk (more safety).
  • Reduced rolling resistance thus decreasing fuel consumption.
  • Reduced tread wear & increased tyre life.
  • Shorter braking distances.
  • Reduced stress on vehicle frame and body work (due to rough riding on irregular road surfaces).

Additional benefits of Nitrogen Tyre Inflation:

  • Protects the rim and steel belting from corrosion (Rust).
  • Lower noise when rolling.
  • Reduced risk of tyre blowout due to lower running temperature and lack of Oxygen.
