Our fire extinguishing (or suppression) systems are designed for immediate fire suppression and long-term sustained protection during flight diversions.
The high-rate, multi-shot extinguishing bottles put out fires (engine, APU and cargo) within seconds using directional valves and distribution tubing solutions for total flooding.
The low-rate bottles use a unique metering design that allows the flow of the suppression agent, whether in gas or liquid state, to be metered across a wide range of temperatures.
Aircraft fire protection reliability and safety is improved by our patented temperature-compensated pressure switch which determines whether the fire extinguisher is fully charged, regardless of ambient temperature.
Bottles can be sized anywhere from 164cm3 to 0.04m3 (10 to 2,500in3) and can be made from steel or titanium, depending on weight requirements.
