Yup, it may sound like an inocent question to many of you; but a very good friend of mine is completely baffled in his research about lattices of inflators on a frame. He asked me very kindly to post this on his behalf and here it is. Any fresh ideas or (counter)examples would definitely help him. Thanks a lot!

I think the answer is `yes'. Let $F$ be a frame and $I(F)$ its set of inflators ordered by the pointwise ordering. I claim that joins and meets are taken pointwise. It suffices to show that if $\lbrace d_a\rbrace_{a\in A}$ is a family of inflators, then so is their pointwise join $d$ and their pointwise meet $m$. Let's do $d$ first. If $f\in F$, then $f\leq d_a(f)\leq d(f)$ for any $a\in A$. Order preserving is also clear: if $f\leq f'$ then $d_a(f)\leq d_a(f')\leq d(f')$ for all $a\in A$ and hence $d(f)\leq d(f')$. Thus $d\in I(F)$ For meets, $f\leq d_a(f)$ for all $a\in A$ and so $f\leq m(f)$. If $f\leq f'$, then $m(f)\leq d_a(f)\leq d_a(f')$ for all $a\in A$ and so $m(f)\leq m(f')$. Now it is clear that $I(F)$ is a frame. If $\lbrace d_a\rbrace_{a\in A}\subseteq I(F)$ and $c\in I(F)$, then
and so $c\wedge \bigvee_{a\in A}d_a=\bigvee_{a\in A}(c\wedge d_a)$. Thus $I(F)$ is a frame.
