Porvair Filtration Group has signed a long-term agreement with Parker Aerospace to provide filtration systems for the company?s on-board aircraft fuel tank inerting systems.

Porvair Filtration Group has signed a long-term agreement with Parker Aerospace to provide filtration systems for the company’s on-board aircraft fuel tank inerting systems.

The lightweight system removes oxygen from a source of engine bleed air with an air separation module (ASM) before delivering nitrogen-enriched air into the aircraft fuel tanks. Porvair’s filtration systems will protect these ASM modules that are particularly sensitive to contamination thus increasing safety and reducing the risk of fuel tank flammability. The systems are used in passenger aircraft such as those manufactured by Boeing and Airbus.

Tom Liddell, managing director of Porvair Filtration Group stated, “This agreement is the successful result of many years of investment in the development of the inerting solution. We are delighted to be working with Parker on existing and future projects.”

Scott Pearson, business unit manager of fuel and inerting at Parker Aerospace Fluid Systems Division added, “Our alignment with Porvair as supplier of this critical filtration equipment is a testament to their technical capability and delivery performance to date. Their products ensure our inerting systems remain at the forefront of the technology.”
