Agenda:

The Problem with using Regular Air Advantages of using Nitrogen to inflate tires Why Nitrogen ? Agenda

The Problem With Regular Air:

Think FREE regular air is good enough ? The Problem With Regular Air

The Problem With Regular Air:

The Problem With Regular Air There are over 1,000,000,000 tires on the road today

The Problem With Regular Air:

The Problem With Regular Air 1,000,000,000 tires on the road today Per DOT Estimates, 80% of tires on the road today are improperly inflated

The Problem With Regular Air:

The Problem With Regular Air Because so many tires are under inflated up to 10,000,000 gallons of fuel are wasted every day

The Problem With Regular Air:

The Problem With Regular Air Or 1 fully loaded oil tanker once per week WASTED !

The Problem With Regular Air:

The Problem With Regular Air 200 MILLION pounds of carbon dioxide emitted every day

The Problem With Regular Air:

The Problem With Regular Air It would take 1,384,615 acres of trees to absorb this amount of greenhouse gas emissions

The Problem With Regular Air:

The Problem With Regular Air It would take 1,384,615 acres of trees to absorb this amount of greenhouse gas emissions = State of Delaware

The Problem With Regular Air:

The Problem With Regular Air There are Approximately 10,000,000 Tires Disposed of P rematurely Every Year

The Problem With Regular Air:

The Problem With Regular Air 90% of tire failures Caused by under inflated tires

The Problem With Regular Air:

The Problem With Regular Air Caused by under inflated tires 250,000 accidents yearly

The Problem With Regular Air:

The Problem With Regular Air Caused by under inflated tires 75 deaths per year

The Problem With Regular Air:

Still think FREE regular air is good enough ? The Problem With Regular Air

PowerPoint Presentation:

Nitrogen tire inflation can make a significant difference !

Advantages of Nitrogen:

Better Fuel Economy Increased Safety Tires Last Longer Fewer Tire Pressure Monitoring Issues Cleaner Environment Advantages of Nitrogen

Advantages of Nitrogen:

Better Gas Mileage Less rolling resistance means Better Fuel Economy. DOT estimates 3.3% better fuel consumption by riding on properly inflated tires . Most drivers will save an average of $200 - $300 per year by riding on tires that are properly inflated. Advantages of Nitrogen

Advantages of Nitrogen:

Increased Safety Better handling & steering Better performance Reminder – most tire-related accidents & deaths are due to riding on under-inflated tires High-Purity Nitrogen will keep tires at their correct pressure 5-6 times longer than regular air. Advantages of Nitrogen

Advantages of Nitrogen:

Tires Last Longer. Removes Oxidation. Tires stay stronger longer. Tires run cooler & maintain more even tread wear. Scientific and Tire Industry studies conclude that new tires last about 25% longer when using High-Purity Nitrogen rather than regular air. Advantages of Nitrogen

Advantages of Nitrogen:

Elimination of Most TPMS Issues Temperature swing changes. Moisture in the Oxygen expands, exceeding the tire pressure parameters set by the vehicle manufacturer, setting off the alarm light. Remove the oxygen (& moisture) from the tire and many TPMS alarms disappear . Advantages of Nitrogen

Advantages of Nitrogen:

Cleaner Environment Better gas mileage reduces toxic exhaust pollutants, including Carbon Dioxide. Carbon Dioxide is the Transportation sector’s #1 contributor to Climate Change, according to EPA. CO2 is a Greenhouse Gas that traps the earth’s heat and adds to the potential for global warming. Each 1% reduction in fuel consumption = a corresponding 1% decrease in Carbon Dioxide emissions. One gallon of gas saved = 20 lbs of CO2 emissions eliminated. Extending tire life reduces our impact on landfills, helping to keep our planet green. Advantages of Nitrogen

What is Compressed Air AIR: 78.1% Nitrogen 20.9% Oxygen 1% Other Gases

Why Is Oxygen Bad:

Why Is Oxygen Bad Oxygen corrodes aluminum and steel wheels. And, oxygen reacts with rubber, in a sense, “corroding” it too. Rust and dust from wheels can clog valve stems, causing them to leak. And, rough surfaces on wheel flanges and tire beads may not seal properly, causing additional leaks. Oxygen also ages the inner-liner, that thin layer of rubber inside the tire whose function is keeping air away from the carcass. As the inner-liner ages, more and more air molecules can pass through it, causing more pressure losses Small bits of corrosion from wheels can prevent valves from seating properly, leading to loss of air pressure.

Why Is Nitrogen Better:

Why Is Nitrogen Better Assume the Oxygen molecules are the size of a golf ball by comparison the Nitrogen molecules would be the size of a basketball thus permeating through the tire at a slower rate

PowerPoint Presentation:

Are there other Benefits to nitrogen? The air around us is full of water vapor. It’s called “humidity.” Compressing air concentrates the water in it. Draining water from your air lines every day helps, but unless you have a really efficient air dryer, chances are there’s lots of water in your compressed air. When you compress air, it takes up much less volume, but the percentage of water by volume is greatly increased.

Why Is Water a Problem?:

Why Is Water a Problem? Water vapor in compressed air acts as a catalyst, accelerating rust and corrosion. Water vapor also absorbs and holds heat. And, when it changes from liquid to vapor, water expands tremendously in volume. So, tires inflated with wet air tend to run hotter and fluctuate in pressure more. That’s why racing tires, where fractions of a psi can radically change handling, are inflated with dry nitrogen. WATER + HEAT = VAPOR

Nitrogen for Tire Inflation is Not New:

Nitrogen for Tire Inflation is Not New Many high-tech and professional applications use Nitrogen. NASCAR, FORMULA ONE, Commercial Airlines, NASA, the U.S. Military, Heavy Equipment – all use Nitrogen for tires. It’s use in these applications is a testament to the advantages of Nitrogen for tire inflation.

How Does the Machine Produce Nitrogen?:

Ordinary compressed air is filtered and passed through a technically advanced bundle of hollow membrane fibers where nitrogen is separated from the feed air by selective permeation. Water vapor and oxygen rapidly permeate safely to the atmosphere, while the nitrogen gas is discharged under pressure into the distribution system. How Does the Machine Produce Nitrogen?

Nitrogen:

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Will Nitrogen Explode ? What if I have a Low Tire or Flat, and need to use regular air ? Does this Nitrogen really work ? But regular air is FREE ! Nitrogen

Nitrogen :

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Will Nitrogen Explode ? NO! N2 is a bone-dry, inert gas which will not burn. N2 is used in many industrial applications, such as Oil Field Exploration Food Processing Aerospace Industry Nitrogen

Nitrogen:

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS What if I have a Low Tire or a Flat, and need to use regular air ? Nothing will happen – fill your tires to the proper pressure with regular air. It just dilutes the purity level of your Nitrogen – it doesn’t harm a thing. Come back to the dealer when you can and we’ll purge your tire and get you back to the proper Nitrogen purity level – at no charge. Nitrogen

Nitrogen:

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Does this Nitrogen really work ? YES! Many studies by car manufacturers, tire manufacturers and scientists conclude that High-Purity Nitrogen is a significantly better way to inflate tires today than regular air. It doesn’t leak out as fast, ensuring proper tire pressure for a much longer period of time. Saves gas. Improves safety. It extends tire life by about 25%. Removes Oxygen and Moisture Tires run cooler It eliminates many TPMS issues. It promotes a Cleaner Environment. Nitrogen

Nitrogen:

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS But regular air is FREE ! Yes, but it leaks out way too fast! (about 2 lbs pressure per month in an average tire) Do you check your tire pressure every month like you know you should? Inflating your tires with High-Purity Nitrogen means your tires will stay inflated at the proper pressure for about 5-6 times longer than regular air – ensuring that you… Get the gas mileage you should You have a safer ride Your tires last longer You do your part to Preserve the Environment Nitrogen
