Heat, dirt and clutter - all of these elements combine to make engine compartment fire suppression difficult for most systems.
Firetrace Aerospace pneumatically activated systems are up to the challenge, requiring no power while providing accurate, failsafe detection and fast suppression that remains unaffected by the elements. The passive nature of the FA engine fire suppression systems allow the end user to avoid the complexities associated with thermal wires and optical systems which can be affected by other electrical systems and dirt.
Whether a fire event occurs during normal vehicle operation or when electrical power is cut off due to encounters in theater; FA’s non-electric systems are always operational. The engine systems can also be tied into other systems such as the tire fire suppression system without the need for advanced or overly complicated electrical circuits and controllers that drive up the cost of other fire suppression systems.
