Nitrogen Vending Tire Inflation Station for Autos and Light Trucks



LAFAYETTE, Colo., Feb. 12 -- TireLast Systems located in Lafayette, Colorado has just announced their new UltraAir(TM) Nitrogen Vending Station, a cashless, RFID, smart-card-operated, self-service nitrogen gas dispenser for autos and light trucks. UltraAir(TM) nitrogen is compressed air with the oxygen and moisture removed. "Car and light truck owners have been asking us for a self-service vending unit that will enable them to fill their tires with nitrogen easily and inexpensively," states TireLast president Nick Verini. "Drivers will now be able to get nitrogen on the road with 24-hour access."

This new vending machine features a VendiPay(TM) prepaid smart card and an advanced microprocessor for controlling the filling of tires. The unit can supply nitrogen at the desired pressure with the touch of a button. The consumer will be able to pay for this unique service using prepaid Inflation Cards(TM) available soon at retail stores.

Nick Verini states, "Oxygen and moisture in air diffuses through tires 30- 40% faster than nitrogen resulting in under-inflated tires. The US Department of Energy estimates that we could save two million gallons of gasoline every day if our tires were properly inflated. Furthermore, tires sometimes fail on the road due to blow-outs which may be caused by weakening of the tire's internal steel belts. Research indicates that elimination of wet air as a pressurizing medium would substantially reduce this weakening and reduce the number of tire failures."

An estimated 30-50% of all vehicles on the road are operating with at least one under-inflated tire resulting in decreased fuel economy. As gasoline prices remain high this issue will become all the more important for consumers. The units will be manufactured in Colorado, USA and are available immediately.
