‘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.
