Demand for nitrogen tyre inflation is rising fast in the UK, and PCL has pre-empted its popularity with the affordable yet high performance ACCURA Mobile.
The compact N2 cart is the very latest technology and is ideal for tyre shops, workshops, car dealerships, and transport depots, for whom high performance means increased revenue.
Easy to use, the unit is operated with an industry standard bottle or direct from a nitrogen generator and can be preset for a standard inflation top up, or operated with an N2 function for a purge and fill cycle.
Equipped to inflate up to 6 tyres simultaneously, power to the unit is supplied through a sealed lead acid battery with the charger allowing the unit to run direct if required, increasing flexibility and enhancing portability.
The increasing demand for nitrogen as a replacement for air is due to its benefits of increased fuel efficiency; extended tyre life; and increased safety.
Nitrogen inflation is used where safety is of paramount importance, eg. the US Military, and is compulsory in the airline industry. It is also a huge benefit in terms of performance - as demonstrated by Formula 1, whilst NASCAR teams prefer nitrogen because tyre pressure fluctuations can be predicted more accurately.
Those considering converting to nitrogen will find it easy to do so. Nitrogen can be used in any tyres, new or existing. The best results are obtained by purging the tyre of oxygen and then replacing with nitrogen, however it’s still possible to top up tyres already filled with nitrogen with air if necessary.
For those wanting a simple conversion, PCL’s ACCURA Mobile offers a long-term solution. With its robust, weatherproof design, it offers low life time costs, and is easy to use with simple controls and optimised cycle times - providing fast, safe, accurate and cost effective nitrogen provision.
Maintenance is simple, diagnostics are excellent, and the cart is incredibly convenient to use, only needing a recharge after an average two days’ operation.
Those who have already converted to nitrogen inflation will confirm that once you’ve tried it, you won’t want to use anything else.
Dropout is receiving rave reviews from the compressed air industry due to its unique ability to remove 99.999% of the bulk liquid water in compressed air systems.
