NitraLife NitraSpray nitrogen generators – ‘Spraying’ success – revolutionising cost and quality for a flawless spray painting finish

It is colourless, odourless and tasteless and is invisible to the human eye. And yet compressed nitrogen is set to bring about a major advance in the professional spray painting industry. “The key factor with compressed nitrogen is that it is inert, absolutely clean and devoid of moisture and contaminants,” explains the Managing Director of NitraLife Tom Sowry. Since 1996, NitraLife has been manufacturing and marketing nitrogen generators. The primary target market has been the tyre inflation market (in mining, long-haul transport and the retail sector).

The ‘new Ice Age’: Cost-effective, water-saving industrial surface cleaning with first-of-its-kind wet ice blaster from NitraLife and partner Boland Ice

For decades in industry, the cleaning of rust, dirt, old paint and various contaminants off surfaces has frequently presented a major challenge.

‘Mining’ the most out of OTR tyres with NitraLife’s nitrogen filling: improved safety, better inflation and less ‘hot air’

Today, in the mining industry, safety standards are more stringent than ever. Should a mine experience an incident, which results in an injury or even a fatality, the subsequent legal consequences and financial penalties can be severe. A potential risk in open-pit mines concerns the ultra-large tyres on off-the-road (OTR) vehicles. Over the past couple of decades, there have been recorded instances of these tyres catching fire and, in some cases, actually exploding – with potentially serious consequences. However, nitrogen tyre inflation has proven to be very effective at preventing…

No early ‘re-tyre-ment’: NitraLife’s nitrogen tyre inflation – extending tyre life and improving cost-savings in the commercial transport sector since 1996

Nitrogen tyre inflation has over the years become well-known, and is no longer the sole preserve of specialist tyre users such as the international motorsport or commercial aviation sectors. In fact, it is even conveniently available today on the forecourts of many petrol stations in South Africa. What is less widely known is the significant cost-savings that commercial transport fleet owners can enjoy when they run their vehicle tyres on nitrogen inflation. “The benefits of inflating your fleet tyres with nitrogen are really significant if you are a major commercial…
