A system for generating an inert gas. An embodiment of the system comprises a turbine engine, a compressor and a blower. Additional elements may be provided to condition the air so that it is satisfactory for use in the fuel tank. Such elements include filters, catalytic converters, air pressure regulators, and heat exchangers, as well as elements to monitor the oxygen content and temperature of the air flow. An embodiment of a method for generating an inert gas is also provided. The method comprises combusting fuel to generate engine exhaust, compressin...


1. A method of inerting a fuel tank in an aircraft having a main thrust generating engine and an auxiliary power unit, comprising the steps of: providing a dedicated turbine engine;combusting hydrocarbon fuel with oxygen in said dedicated turbine engine positioned in the aircraft, said dedicated turbine engine operating independent of the main thrust generating engine and said auxiliary power unit;operating said dedicated turbine engine at a stoichiometric ratio to generate engine exhaust comprising carbon dioxide and having an oxygen content below a pre...
