A gas generating system comprises an air separation module (ASM) in fluid communication with a nitrogen enriched air (NEA) line and an oxygen enriched air (OEA) line. A valve is positioned in the OEA line and an oxygen sensor is positioned in the NEA line. The valve can be modulated in response to the oxygen sensor to create a backpressure forcing more airflow into the NEA line. The OEA line can be backpressured until a predetermined NEA oxygen concentration is reached.
We claim: 1. A gas generating system comprising: at least one air separation module; a nitrogen enriched air line in flow communication with said air separation module; an oxygen enriched air line in flow communication with said air separation module; a modulating valve positioned in said oxygen enriched air line; at least one sensor operationally connected to said modulating valve; and a fuel tank in fluid communication with said nitrogen enriched air line; wherein the at least one sensor comprises an oxygen sensor positioned in said fuel tank. 2.
