Pagination or Media Count:
This test program quantified the fire extinguishment performance of the candidate Halon 1211 replacement agents, perfluorohexane and Halotron I. Both of these agents were tested head-to-head with Halon 1211 for several typical aircraft fire scenarios. The following tests were conducted agent throw-range tests, dry-pool fire extinguishment tests, three-dimensional inclined plane running fuel fire tests, simulated engine-nacelle running-fuel fire tests, and simulated wheel-well fires involving hydraulic fluid. All tests except the wheel well fire used JP-4 as the fuel. Amerex Model 600 150-pound wheeled extinguishers were used to dispense the agent in each test. Halon 1211, Perfluorohexane, Halotron 1, Clean fire extinguishing agents.
