Deoxo Fuel Tank Inerting System / On-Board Inert Gas Generating System
(FTIS/OBIGGS) Catalytic Ozone Converter
The air separation system for FTIS/ OBIGGS is a safety feature for commercial aircraft mandated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
FTIS/OBIGGS use an Air Separation Module (ASM) to separate nitrogen from the air. The nitrogen is blanketed over the fuel in the tank to lower the risk of explosions. FTIS/OBIGGS require an ozone converter to protect the membrane inside the ASM from decomposition by ozone.
Commercial and military aircraft can be equipped or retrofitted with BASF’s Deoxo™ FTIS/OBIGGS catalytic ozone converter.
- The highest protection for air separation membranes inside the FTIS/OBIGGS.
- Low weight and pressure drop.
- Easy installation and removal.
- Cost-effective maintenance.
