To determine the infiltration rate of Halon1301 into a standard LD3 ULD.
“Quick Look”, more rigorous tests to follow
Halon 1301 has been shown to be effective in suppressing the electrolyte fire associated with lithium-ion cells in thermal runaway.
Halon 1301 has been shown to be an effective explosion suppressant.
The effectiveness of the agent is predicated on the agent concentration and proximity to the fire.
Lithium-ion battery fires originating in ULD’s may not be exposed to the full concentration of Halon 1301.
Potential for the explosive build up of unburned electrolyte gases.
