A fuel tank inerting system uses two “half systems” for providing inerting gas for the fuel tanks. Each inerting system may be composed of a temperature control and air pressurization unit (TCPU) and an air separation unit (ASU). A cross-ship duct and valve allows using one TCPU (sized for about half capacity or more, but less than full system capacity) connected to two ASUs. The inerting system may provide for redundancy in the TCPU section.
1. A fuel tank inerting system comprising: a first temperature control and air pressurization unit (TCPU);a first air separation unit (ASU) having a first fluid connection for fluidly connecting the first TCPU with the first ASU;a second TCPU;a second ASU having a second fluid connection for fluidly connecting the second TCPU with the second ASU; anda cross ship valve isolating flow between the first fluid connection and the second fluid connection. 2. The fuel tank inerting system of claim 1, wherein the first TCPU and the second TCPU are sized to provi...
