An oxygen exchange manifold converts oxygenate air into an oxygen depleted air stream for use in inerting an otherwise flammable environment. A system including the oxygen exchange manifold may be utilized to inert fuel tanks of an aircraft or another environment. Methods of inerting such environments are also disclosed.
What is claimed is: 1. An oxygen exchange manifold for inerting a volatile environment, the oxygen exchange manifold comprising: a body defining an oxygen exchange chamber; and a selectively permeable gas membrane situated in the oxygen exchange chamber, wherein the body and the selectively permeable gas membrane collectively define an oxygenated airflow passage and a deoxygenated airflow passage separated by the selectively gas permeable gas membrane, the deoxygenated airflow passage in fluid communication with a combustion exhaust; wherein only select...
