Atmosphere Processor | Weyland Industries Featured Products


This proprietary system creates a localised environment in the lowest atmospheric strata by mining the surrounding air and delivering electrostatic charge to correct the chemical composition of the planetary atmosphere.
The system does this by converting toxic compounds into a breathable air ratio of approximately 1:3.1 oxygen to nitrogen ratio, depending on a colony’s oxygen needs.
Once stable equilibrium is achieved, the AP continually monitors environmental gas compositions and corrects imbalances.
By-products can often be isolated and condensed for use as fuel sources, industrial cleaning supplies or raw materials for manufacturing.

The atmospheric processor was designed by Ron Cobb for Aliens (1986)
