An inerting system (10) for an aircraft (12) includes one or more fuel tank circuits (15) associated with fuel tanks (16). An air source (17) supplies pressurized air. A heat exchanger (56) cools the pressurized air. An air separation module (46) is in fluid communication with the heat exchanger ( 56) and separates inerting gas from the pressurized air. A controller (40) controls flow of the inerting gas from the air separation module (46) to the fuel tanks (16).
What is claimed is: 1. An inerting system comprising: an air source supplying pressurized air; at least one fuel tank circuit associated with at least one fuel tank; a heat exchanger cooling said pressurized air; at least one air separation module in communication with said heat exchanger and separating inerting gas from said pressurized air; a controller controlling flow rate of said inerting gas; an ozone converter converting ozone contained within said pressurized air to oxygen; and a temperature sensor coupled to an air flow line and generating a ...
