Why buy a GWR Premier Nitrogen Tank Filling Stationtm
GWR's revolutionary tank systems can automatically delivers a consistent
99.99% concentration of Nitrogen to the tire, something no generator system can do.
Interestingly though, some manufacturers do claim they can... on their web
site. (IE: " Our generators can produce nitrogen in
excess of 99.9% purity and provide the procedures to guarantee a minimum
of 95% purity in the serviced tire, which is the minimum allowable purity
that must be maintained in the tire to enjoy the benefits that nitrogen
provides.") Well they are almost right with the 95% (it's 97%), although it is
impossible to consistently get 99.9% with a generator due to inherent
problems with membranes, filters and run time.
In comparison to our tank system, some Nitrogen "Generating" machines
fluctuate gas concentration by as much as 10% as their membrane filters
become clogged with contaminants and oils from the shop's air
supply. Worse, the net cost per tire runs from an absolute minimum of $1
to as much as $4. That's
based on fixed yearly maintenance costs, the condition of the Generator's filtration and membrane system itself and the
quality of the supporting air compressor. Remember that the longer
their system runs, the longer it takes to regenerate N2 because filter
contamination grows and flow rates decrease with every hour or usage.
We thought you might be
interested in reading an excerpt
from a manufacture of generator systems.
This one is actually honest about the limitation of membranes.
"Since membranes start degrading immediately, a
customer's unit will over-perform at first. If, however, we put
high-pressure air through the membrane and/or pushing high volumes
of air through the unit to increase flow, the unit will degrade much
If you think of the logic, it’s obvious: Membranes
degrade because molecular particles which get past filtration plug
the holes through which the O2, CO4, CO2 molecules ferment. The more
air and the higher the pressure (more excited molecules bouncing
around, moving, giving a better chance for impurities to plug holes)
the more quickly the membrane deteriorates. Since the membrane
is 85% of the cost of a membrane system (I.E. $3,000 to $5,000),
things go downhill pretty fast.
In general... as membrane purity goes down, customers must increase
flow of input air to ensure volume and purity. Each time more air is
added though, degradation of the membrane becomes faster and
If this scares you and it should if
you have a limited budget, you are a candidate for the Premier Nitrogen
Filling Station! Because there is no expensive membrane to
replace down the road, the consistent final cost per tire with a Premier
Filling Station is only .25¢ to .50¢, that's less than $2 per
vehicle! Not bad when you consider the average retail ticket for four
tires is $30 to $40. Yes, a 1000% to 2000% mark-up with virtually no labor or
parts... plus our exclusive touch screen allows anyone on your
staff to perform the simple service with only 5 minutes of initial instruction.
Do the math and you will see how the GWR Nitrogen
Filling Station (tm) creates a 400% greater profit
margin with 1/4 the labor time. Our machines don't just put "nitrogen in tires", they do all four
(or 4 plus spare) at one
time, automatically! Generators, on the other hand have one hose and
take 30 to 45 minutes to do the same service. If they happen to have
added more hoses now to keep up with the Premier System (so called "new
and improved" models), they still
take 30 minutes or more on a multi pressure vehicle. In contrast, simply set the
various tire pressures on the Premier Nitrogen's Color Touch Screen,
push the start button and walk away. In about 10 to 12 minutes all four or
five tires, will have been purged and filled
twice with virtually no
labor on the technicians part. Most important, there is no waiting time to
"make more nitrogen" after two or three are filled, like some generators
systems. Can you or your customer wait an additional 10 minutes to
an hour, for the generation and storage of
more Nitrogen if a machine ran out during a service? That's asking a lot!
Note: Our systems can be configured to fill more than one
vehicle at a time, with no waiting. If you are a busy multi-bay shop this
may be a money making option for you! Remember, with our tank
distribution system, there is never a wait to "generate" more Nitrogen
before the next fill job. You can even add
with our exclusive automatic tank pressure monitoring system... it allows you
to fill vehicles for
weeks or even months without touching a tank. Additionally there are new features now
available that we decided not to discuss here, to keep from competitors eyes. It's only fair they should have to research and develop
new innovations like we do, not just take them from more progressive
companies like Premier.
After all this, we still offer more...
GWR's exclusive design
reduces your initial cost when compared to big name generator
filling systems. They may have the name but they do not have the best
system, that's a
guaranteed fact! For example, what if there is a break-down of your
generator machine? Can you afford to wait days of weeks for a service
technician to come to your location? Worse, do you want to crate
the monster machine at your expense, to send it back for repairs that may take weeks or months. If you purchase GWR's
Premier Nitrogen Filling Station(tm) you won't need
to, ever! On the slight chance you ever encounter a problem with our state
of the art technology, you simply disconnect the hoses, unplug the power
cord and then remove the entire top panel from the main metal
housing/cart. The 20 lb "brain" can then be sent via the US Postal
Service, FedEx or UPS, for a quick repair at our factory. Again,
with our exclusive design, the whole repair process requires only one day
in-house, before we turn it around. Check out the warrantee of the
big names and be sure to read the fine print... most are fully warranted
for only 1 year, not the 5 years they claim. Additionally,
you must buy expensive multiple filters exclusively from them and follow a
rigorous extensive maintenance schedule, otherwise you void the entire warrantee.
Finally, they make sure they are fully protected by stating your warrantee
is void if they find one speck of oil in the membrane.... something
virtually impossible in a shop environment.
A final though about "generators"...
You may be unaware of this fact, "generators" require
the continual replacement of their expensive membranes ($3000-$5000) and
multiple inline filters. Their salespeople will tell you a membrane last
for 5 to 10 years, but they are talking absolute perfect conditions with an air
compressor/filtration system that would cost you $10,000 minimum.
Reality is, there's no way to change this "built-in" design problem, so
actual "real cost" of a generator's maintenance will probably be
$1000 to $2000 per year. We regularly get calls from shops telling us
they have replaced membranes within a year of the new purchase... at a
cost in excess of $3000. Worse, that amount does not include
the enormous cost of electricity required to run a 12CFM or higher, 2
Stage, 175PSI air compressor, or the ware and tear on it. (Note:
Standard shop compressors can run 3, to 4, to up to 8 hours per day since
their volume and or pressure is generally not sufficient to push a high
volume of air through the O2/N2 separating membrane, plus the production
ratio of O2 to Nitrogen is about 3 to 1. Additionally, shops may
have to wait for extended periods of time for a generator system to
manufacturer more nitrogen, possibly on a single vehicle.)
"they" don't want you to know:
A membrane's capacity to produce nitrogen will drop 61% when you
try to increase nitrogen purity from 95% to 99% (example 8 scfm will drop
to 3.1 scfm). Additionally, membranes will lose the capacity to
produce nitrogen when the temperature drops in the shop below membrane
ambient operating temperatures, normally quoted at 68 degrees to 75
degrees. On the average, for every one degree of temperature drop
below these operating ambient temperatures, a membrane will lose .9% cubic
feet of gas production. This condition could be overcome by heating
the air feed, however this adds additional operating expenses, plus the
initial cost of new equipment. Any way you look at it... membranes
are expensive initially and for the long run!
Something new "they" came up with!
We found out something interesting while displaying
our Premier Nitrogen Filling Station at the 2006 SEMA show in Las Vegas, a
few years ago. Several of the most powerful companies
selling nitrogen generators have gotten together and formed a so call
"information organization" to tout the benefits of nitrogen to the general
public. Interestingly they have limited their founding and controlling
members to four companies, the "big" generator manufactures
Additionally, they are directing the information coming out to the public
so that it seemingly supports a new opinion that you only need a 93% final
concentration of nitrogen in tires. We find this disturbing yet
expected, since most generators can't fill tires with a greater than 93%
concentration. From the beginning of tire testing and discussions on
nitrogen, all scientific testing and engineers in the rubber and tire
manufacturing field have supported the 96% number as the absolute minimum.
Now, all of a sudden, non scientific based companies who only "assemble
or re-label equipment" come up with a "new" theory. One that supports their limitations! Who are we to
believe? Does it sound logical that replacing air with nitrogen in a
tire is beneficial, yet you don't need to change as much as is physically possible?
They state that at 93% N2 concentration, we achieve a balance between
outside and inside saturation levels of O2. To make their theory plausible, I
honestly believe they would need to change the
law of physics. I could be wrong, but someone would have to explain how air (oxygen) would go into a tire (through the walls) when exterior
air pressure is 15psi and interior tire pressure is 30psi or more.
That's like trying to blow air into an inflated tire, with a hose
and your mouth. Please don't fall for this one, I believe
technicians and shop owners are smarter than that.
