Halon-alternative Halotron® 1 (HCFC Blend B) fire extinguisher Model 398 meets the FAA-approved minimum performance standards in report DOT/FAA/AR-01/37 and is accepted for use on-board aircraft.
Just like Halon 1211, Halotron® 1 expels as a rapidly evaporating liquid and leaves no residue. It effectively extinguishes Class A, B and C fires by cooling and smothering and it will not conduct electricity back to the operator.
Besides flight line and ramp applications, Model 398 is an ideal fire extinguisher for computer rooms, telecommunications facilities, clean rooms, data storage areas, offices (for protection of sensitive electronic equipment), and boats.
