Improvements in oxygen generators and inert gas generators in aircraft. Separate gas generators are inefficient and thus present the problems of excess weight and heavy space and bleed air requirements. This invention provides an integrated system of generating oxygen and inert gas to pre-enrich the supply gas and increase overall efficiency. Bleed air is supplied to a first module (14) that separates it into a nitrogen enriched product gas and an oxygen enriched waste gas. The waste gas is fed into a second module (26) which separates it into an oxygen ...
In an aircraft, a method of generating oxygen enriched gas and combustibly inert gas from bleed air, comprising: providing first and second gas separation modules; supplying bleed air having an oxygen component and a nitrogen component to the first module; in the first module, separating said bleed air into a first product gas enriched in one of said components, and a first waste gas enriched in the other of said components; transporting the first waste gas from the first module to the second module; boosting the pressure of the first waste gas, after it...
