Fire extinguishers

Recommended Posts

Hello C-130 people,

I am looking for information about fire extinguishers onboard C-130 from other countries (than Sweden)

- What sort of extinguishers are there on your C-130?

- How many are there and where are they placed?

For each type of extinguisher

- Who is the manufacturer?

- Weight of agent?

- Volume extinguisher?

- Pressure?

- What rating does it have?

- approved temperature interval?

I am happy to get information on all or some of the questions?

Regards

Johan

My USAF experience: 5 halon 1211 (BCF) fire extinguishers:1 on the flight deck (245 bulkhead) and 4 in the cargo compartment: one on aft 245 bulkhead, 2 on right side (aft of wing), and 1 forward of portside paratroop door.

125 +/-50 psi

Thanks a lot for the info. You wouldn´t happen to know how many pounds of halon there is in the extinguishers?

All the herks I've seen have 4.

Flight deck, back of 245, left wheel well, and right paratroop door.

Four, except on special mission birds. where there are 5, 6 or 7, depending on model. The four are at FS245 LH, FS617 RH and FS803, and one in cockpit.
