The elimination of flammable fuel vapours in helicopter fuel tanks, commercial and military aircraft is a major priority in both the US and Europe. Lightweight, onboard aircraft fuel tank inerting systems address this issue and can be easily fitted within existing aircraft designs. The system removes oxygen from its source of engine bleed air, delivering nitrogen-enriched air into the aircraft fuel tanks thereby reducing the risk of fuel tank flammability.
Porvair Filtration Group has developed a range of filtration systems that ensures the source of engine bleed air is free from both particulate and liquid contamination protecting the sensitive air separation module and ensuring long service life testing.
