High Performance Gas Expansion System for Halon-Free Cargo Hold Fire Suppression System

Project description

A halon-free fire suppression system for safe aviation

A major concern of the aircraft industry is safety during operations. Aircraft fire suppression systems are essential for safe flights. However, since halons (gaseous fire extinguishing agents) are banned, nontoxic, reliable and ecologically friendly solutions are required. The EU-funded ECOSYSTEM project proposes to advance a halon-free cargo hold fire suppression system to a technology readiness level five (TRL 5). This innovative inert gas expansion system stores inactive gas over the temperature range -55° C to +85° C and discharges it over the temperature range -40° C to +70° C. The project will deal with safety issues that comprise all appropriate instruments to depict static and transient conditions during its operation.
