Gaseous Pressured Vaporization unit (GPV)

Gaseous Pressured Vaporization unit (GPV)

High-pressure liquid to gas nitrogen or oxygen for aircraft ground support

GPV has been designed to meet the needs of air forces and civil aviation: • Fill-in nitrogen for ground use cylinders and source of cold on-board, • Fill-in oxygen for on-board converters and cylinders as source of breathable oxygen.

How does it work?

The GPV exists in nitrogen and oxygen distinct versions. The GPV is filled with liquefied gas from a stationary or mobile storage tank. Liquid gas is fed by high-pressure pump to a heater vaporizer and distributed in gaseous form to cylinders using a bench. The filling pressure can be adjusted from 250 to 325 bar. The filling end is announced by sound and light alarms, motor power is automatically turned off.
