“Forbes Magazine reports: A Spirit Airlines flight from Dallas to Orlando was diverted to Jacksonville suffers a lithium battery in a personal device caught fire in an overhead bin”.
Everyone understands the issues of Fire onboard an Aircraft.
In Australia, regardless of whether the regulations require a Fire Extinguisher or not, CASA (Civil Aviation Safety Authority) recommends at least one Fire Extinguisher be fitted to an aircraft and that it will be accessible to a pilot.
The fire extinguisher mainly sold for aviation use is a Vaporising Liquid fire extinguishing agent known as Halotron as a Portable Fire Extinguisher: Halotron Brx.
Fire rating requirement: An Australian 1B:E (or a US rating 1B:C) rating should be considered as the minimum extinguishing rating. If the cabin area is larger than 5.6 m3 (200ft3), a 5B:E rating is required.
Real Pilot Story: Fire In The Cockpit
The Lith-Ex Aviation Aircraft Lithium Battery Fire extinguisher is designed to combat lithium-ion battery fires.
A unique solution to an otherwise unsolved problem. Adequate lithium-ion battery fire protection designed and tested to tackle the dangers of battery fires across various applications.
The revolutionary extinguishing agent AVD is designed to cool excessive heat and suppress flames in their infancy to help prevent re-ignition and shutdown of fully established fires.
AVD is specifically designed to solve the threat caused by lithium-ion battery fires. Defend against damage and safely control the flames with Lith-Ex AVD, the first lithium-ion battery fire protection choice.
Lith-Ex AVD is a pioneering fire extinguishing agent that has been tried and tested as an adequate lithium-ion battery fire protection.
Lith-Ex AVD fire suppression technology is suitable for use in factories, offices, and other locations with significant lithium-ion battery devices.
Aqueous Vermiculite Dispersion (AVD) – a revolutionary and non-toxic extinguishing agent, is deployed as a mist, which then creates a film over the surface that instantly dries to prevent re-ignition, creates an oxygen barrier, and cools down the flames. The Lith-Ex AVD fire extinguisher works where a powder extinguisher can’t.
The manufacturer has successfully type-tested AVD fire extinguishing agent on a 6.8 kWh battery module.
This equates to a small, domestic solar battery storage system or small hybrid Electric Vehicle with significantly more energy than lithium-ion power tools and electric bicycles.
