FTIS/NGS Protection and Enhancement

Fully protect the Air Separation Module (ASM) in your Nitrogen Generating System (NGS) or Fuel Tank Inerting System (FTIS) with an optimised 4-stage filtration process designed to remove Ozone, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), particulate, oil and water mist contamination from engine bleed air.

Rigorous new fuel-tank safety standards issued in 2008 by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) led to an industry wide adoption of Nitrogen Generating Systems (NGS) or Fuel Tank Inerting Systems (FTIS) as a measure to reduce the flammability levels of fuel tank vapours both on the ground and in the air.

 

The new regulations impacting all fixed-wing aircraft designs with passenger capacity greater than 30 have prompted the delivery of production aircraft fitted with NGS starting in 2011 with all US aircraft required to have an NGS system fitted by end of 2017.

 

The ASM is a critical component of NGS or FTIS that provides Nitrogen enriched air to fill the empty space in fuel tanks. Used for many years in various industrial applications, ASMs offer a high level of reliability and studies show that when protected by the correct level of pre- filtration, can demonstrate service lives often exceeding 10 years.

 

In contrast, the high cost ASMs used in aircraft applications are only achieving between 30% and 50% of their expected service life. Known to degrade from exposure to Ozone and VOCs that are either not present on the industrial applications or are filtered out by effective pre-filtration, ASMs are generating a significant cost burden for Airlines and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) alike.

 

Current available solutions that look to protect the FTIS/NGS Air Separation Module (ASM), only provide a 2-stage filtration process that removes particulate, oil and water mist contamination from engine bleed air but leaves the ASM exposed to ozone and VOCs.

 

Our commercial airline filtration and separation solutions ensure our commercial partners maintain the highest possible level of efficiency in their operations and maintenance programs.

PV200 NGS Life Extension Filter

Application: Commercial Fixed Wing

The PV200 NGS Life Extension Filter specifically engineered for Boeing 737 aircrafts, provides equivalent levels of oil and water mist removal and particulate contamination removal while ensuring additional NGS ASM protection through the removal of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and elimination of Ozone from engine bleed air.

PV300 FTIS Life Extension Filter

Application: Commercial Fixed Wing

The PV300 FTIS Life Extension Filter specifically designed for Airbus A320 family aircraft, provides equivalent levels of oil and water mist removal and particulate contamination removal while ensuring additional NGS ASM protection through the removal of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and elimination of Ozone from engine bleed air.

OBIGGS Filter

Application: Military Fixed Wing

OBIGGS stands for “On Board Inert Gas Generation System”. Any contamination present in the air will degrade the performance of the Air Separation Module (ASM) within the OBIGGS. The Pall OBIGGS filtration system removes particulate contamination, moisture and ozone from the air entering the ASM.
