Parker Hannifin’s new portable Model TS051-0ABCBR TireSaver Nitrogen Tire Inflation System will produce 95-percent-pure nitrogen from standard compressed air. The computer-controlled tool uses a built-in auto inflator that purges and fills up to six tires simultaneously. The unit features a 30-gallon storage tank, pressure gauges to monitor inlet and outlet pressure, cart mounting for easy portability, a plastic bezel design to cushion accidental contact with vehicles, and a hand-held nitrogen analyzer. The maker says nitrogen-filled tires will last longer, provide increased safety, offer better fuel efficiency and reduced operating costs.
