ha ha, by careful calculation I have..... err..... no idea, but I bet it's somewhere between 79 and 99%I did deflate the tires as much as possible before inflating. Dallas is at 755 feet above sea level, 64% humidity, it was 81 degrees, and final pressure in tire was 34 front and 41 rear. What percentage do you think the nitrogen would be?
Good info, rcannon409My concours 14 has an onboard tire pressure monitoring system, like cars. When I use nitrogen, the display never changes.
If its air, from my 30 year old compressor, it will occasionally see a bump of alb, or 2 after it gets hot.
The same leaking tire may or may not have been filled with r134a refrigerant as an emergency measure.
If you want the best, you need to use Argon.
Co2 was a fun one, too. Fill it today, and the tire would be flat tomorrow.
That's actually a fairly complicated question, and each gas has a different answer (in practice).How do they separate helium, nitrogen or oxygen atoms, etc and put them in separate containers? I've always wondered that.
All of that would be cool to see! You see that at work? Dayum!Uss gave great info, and much more educated than mine.
We do a lot of gas separation at work. I take care of several machines that do it. Typically, trucks deliver liquid nitrogen, oxygen, hydrogen, etc and store liquid in cryogenic, vaccuum tanks. They "make" the liquid at places that look like this.
Liquid is good because it expands 700 times when it turns to gas. A small, liquid container will be enough to fill thousands of tires, or autoclaves.
The most awesome one to work with is oxygen. Occasionally you'll have a leak and can capture liquid oxygen (for short time) in a coffee cup. The color is like a clear Suzuki's gsxr blue. One cant help but stare at it like a 4 year old.
Hydrogen is the most odd/crazy/terrifying. Its temperature is @ -415 degrees. If you send it through tubing, and its over your head, you can make it snow on a 100 degree day.
