Fuel Inerting Ozone Converters

The air separation system for FTIS/ OBIGGS (Fuel Tank Inerting System / On-Board Inert Gas Generating System) is a safety feature for commercial aircraft mandated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

FTIS/OBIGGS use an Air Separation Module (ASM) to separate nitrogen from the air. The nitrogen is blanketed over the fuel in the tank to lower the risk of explosions. FTIS/OBIGGS require an ozone converter to protect the membrane inside the ASM from decomposition by ozone.

Commercial and military aircraft can be equipped or retrofitted with BASF’s Deoxo FTIS/OBIGGS catalytic ozone converter.
