We’ve covered a lot of information about nitrogen over the last few days, but now it’s finally time for the grand finale; what does PCL have to offer in the world of nitrogen?
As we’ve covered over the last few days, nitrogen has been used for a long time in both aviation and car tires, and for good reasons (mostly because it’s inert and noncombustible, and loses pressure more slowly than oxygen). So now you might be wondering, where do I get nitrogen for myself? Well, you’re in luck!
Nitrogen (N2) is a commonly used gas in a lot of different industry applications. Due to its inert properties, it is safer than gases such as oxygen, which sometimes pose a fire hazard. Among the tire inflation applications, N2 is used to fill aircraft tires, race car tires, and commercial tires.
Nitrogen (N2) is a naturally occurring gas that is found in the air we breathe. When we talk about N2 for your tires, however, we are talking about a processed gas that has had the impurities and moisture of regular air removed. N2 is commonly used in race cars and aircraft tires, so why is it becoming popular in passenger cars?
As we mentioned in Monday’s blog about the Qube, this inflator/deflator tool is automatic and presetable – you can put in the values you want and walk away while the Qube does its job! It comes in two different power-supply options: the 110v and the 12v. Today we want to talk about the 12v.
Looking for a “set it and forget it” style of tire inflator or deflator? Then the Qube 110v is PCL’s automatic tire inflator for you! The Qube is perfect for an individual or garage that needs efficiency and accuracy and a product that does its job without needing to be minded.
