Pulford Air & Gas has established itself as a leader in the design and manufacture of bespoke Nitrogen Tyre Inflation Systems for the mining industry over the past two decades, with numerous installations already in operation in mine sites across Australia, delivering mine site operators a whole host of benefits over the conventional method of tyre inflation.

Pulford’s Nitrogen Tyre Inflation System offers rim protection from oxidisation, eliminating the cost of buying sealants and taking trucks off the road for this maintenance requirement.

The tyres also have a longer life, reducing tyre consumption and disposal for a clear environmental advantage.
