NEXUS Membrane Model

NEXUS Membrane Nitrogen Generator & Built-in Multi-head Inflator - Suitable for Trucks and OTR tyres.

PCL’s brand new range of Nitrogen products branded ‘NEXUS’ – meaning ‘the most central and most important point’ combines PCL’s ethos of designing and manufacturing market leading Nitrogen generation and inflation equipment in a modern, innovative and simple to use housing. The PCL NEXUS series generators with built in multi-head inflator allows the operator to set and inflate different pressures for front and rear tyres simultaneously.

The launch of the NEXUS range means that PCL can now offer cost effective Nitrogen inflation units to cover all applications from passenger car tyres to large commercial tyres and OTR applications. This brings huge rewards for the whole spectrum of tyre service providers worldwide, who can benefit from offering Nitrogen inflation without having to buy, store and handle bottles.

NEXUS incorporates a number of upgrades from the previous range with includes the modern 21st century design, faster inflation times, high quality valves and fittings and bigger 90mm castors for more stability and flexibility.

The chief benefits for the tyre customer are that - due to Nitrogen's properties compared to air - it can offer enhanced handling, improved fuel efficiency, extended tyre life, and most importantly increased safety, which is why it is used in Formula One.

The PCL NEXUS Multi-head inflator Membrane units incorporate the ability to preset front and rear tyre pressure allowing the operator to automatically inflate up to 4 tyres with Nitrogen to 95%+ purity, saving time and money.
