Development of advanced lightweight Trace Contaminant Control (TCC) filters plays an important role in removing contaminants—both those produced by crew metabolism and material/ equipment off-gassing into the space suit system—for future space and planetary systems.
Serionix Inc. has developed proprietary adsorptive coatings which can be applied on porous and nonporous substrates to yield functional composite media capable of rapid, efficient adsorption of trace ammonia and formaldehyde.
Successful implementation of our technology will increase efficiency while reducing mass, volume, and pressure drop of the TCC system to protect the crew in all mission environments and address a wide range of current and future NASA requirements.
The primary objective of Serionix Phase I work is to develop, design and test lightweight sorbent system that can absorb trace contaminants, especially ammonia and formaldehyde in next generation spacecraft missions.
