Cobham, with extensive capability in gas separation and high pressure gas management, has been developing and delivering nitrogen-based inerting systems and subsystems for 30 years. With this expertise, Cobham pioneered the development of On-Board Inert Gas Generating System (OBIGGS) for helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft utilising gas separation technology. Cobham has also used this skill to develop nitrogen inerting systems for enclosed electronics systems.
Fuel Tank Inerting Systems
Cobham, a technology leader in fuel tank inerting systems for all aerospace platform applications, has systems on more than 3,000 aircraft and over 5 million flight hours. Cobham possesses the unique technical ability to design an optimally sized and configured On-Board Inert Gas Generating System (OBIGGS) using either Hollow Fiber Membrane or Pressure Swing Adsorption technology. Cobham OBIGGS are designed for both military and commercial applications.
Enclosed Electronics Inerting
Cobham's systems are designed to inert a travelling waveguide or radome with dry nitrogen gas to prevent electrical arcing at low altitudes.
