GENTECŪ Nitrogen aircraft tire inflation systems allow for easy, cost effective filling of General Aviation aircraft tires with pure Nitrogen.

Due to the complex nature of construction and the severe operating conditions of aircraft tires, Michelin and other leading tire manufacturers recommend the use of Nitrogen as does the FAA.

Nitrogen is a totally inert gas that will not support corrosion or oxidation within aircraft wheels and tires.

Compressed Nitrogen has a larger gas molecule than compressed air, so low tire pressure due to allowable leakage is minimized. Gentec Nitrogen aircraft tire inflation systems are available in two versions.

The GKNAT40-TC 12-01587 is a 40 cubic foot high pressure nitrogen tank (empty) with stand, ten foot hose; pressure reducing single stage regulator and tire inflator with resetable dial pressure gauge.
