Automatic Fire Extinguisher for Trash Receptacles
This document covers the halon-replacement automatic fire extinguisher fitted in aircraft trash receptacles. The purpose is to establish minimum requirements for the automatic fire extinguisher that employs extinguishing agents suitable for replacement of halon.
This Aerospace Standard (AS) is being created in response to a request by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) to craft the technical basis for a ETSO that addresses International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Assembly Resolution A36-12, regarding the replacement of halon in automatic fire extinguishers fitted in aircraft trash receptacles. It is intended to capture requirements selected from fire extinguisher specifications existing within the industry, with the goal of establishing a single set of requirements specifically applicable to aircraft automatic fire extinguishers.
