4.5.1 Water-Based and Combination Agents.

Water, water/surfactant (e.g., Surfactant Blend A), Dry Chemical/Water Mixtures, and combination agents meet all the above requirements. Water is the most common fire- method (sprinkler, mist). Loaded stream or surfactant blends could improve surface wetting of Class A materials. These are all likely to be more effective on Class A materials than halocarbons. Pacific Scientific is commercializing a lavatory fire extinguisher containing Envirogel

4.5.4 Boeing Commercial Airplane Status

In 2006, Boeing replaced all Halon 1301 bottles used in production lavatory waste compartments with FM-200. Boeing is currently working with the FAA to gain approval to allow the use of FM-200 extinguishers for all models of in-service airplanes.

Summary

  • Request other airframe manufactures support the revision by providing a similar status for their airplanes. Information should address the following:
      • Have you switched to a Halon replacement in production?
      • When did or will the new potty bottles be installed in production airplanes?
      • What agent is used?
      • Retrofit/spares engineering status? Has it been completed, if so when?
  • Please E-mail mike.r.madden@boeing.com with the information, in time to support Louise's schedule
