A pyrotechnic air bag inflator utilizing non-azide gas generating material such as mixtures of copper oxide and amino tetrazol includes a unitary, rigid, drop-in type, filter for cooling and filtering high temperature, high pressure corrosive gas generated when the air bag inflator is activated to inflate an associated air bag. The filter comprises a reticulated structure formed of strong, porous, metal, metal alloy or ceramic material having a high thermal diffusivity and surface area for absorbing heat from the gas and defining a plurality of tortuous ...
An air bag inflator comprising: a housing for containing gas generator means, said housing including a plurality of diffuser ports in an outer wall for directing gas to inflate an air bag; and a unitary, filter element mounted in said housing for entrapping contaminants from generated gas moving from said gas generator means toward said diffuser ports; said filter element including a rigid, porous body of ceramic foam, having a reticulated structure forming a plurality of tortuous paths for gas flow therethrough for entrapment of contaminants from said g...
