Aviation CO2/Nitrogen Gravimetric Cylinder Filling

Aviation  CO2/Nitrogen Gravimetric Cylinder Filling

Our client, a major International Airline wished to take control of their Aviation CO2/Nitrogen Gravimetric Cylinder Filling requirements which are required within their Emergency Evacuation Slide Inflation Systems.

Whilst the client had extensive experience in the airline technology requirements, they had limited knowledge / experience in the area of filling gas cylinders.

The technology adopted was automatic cylinder filling utilising Gravimetric filling technique including proportional valve control (“fine fill”) to ensure accurate, repeatable fills and reduced heat of compression, along with minimal operator involvement.

In addition, high levels of safety, quality, reliability and productivity were key drivers within the project scope.

We, the IGPH Group delivered a full turnkey solution comprising, mechanical, electrical and process design and engineering, HAZOP safety studies, project management, installation, commissioning and training.

The equipment included within the project comprised; fully integrated, automatic, gravimetric CO2/ Nitrogen Cylinder Filling module, complete with SCADA for remote support.
