FAA Approves Re-Designed Fire Suppression System For Eclipse Jet

"Fully Resolves" Leakage Problem Experienced By Original Design

The FAA has certified and approved the newly redesigned canister to be used with the PhostrEx fire suppression system on the Eclipse Twin-Engine Jet. The new canister, an all-welded design, stores contents at a lower pressure, fully resolving leakage problems experienced by the original design. The improved PhostrEx canister was extensively tested and consistently met all design specifications.

The new canister has the same electrical requirements, geometry, and mounting features as the original design and can be conveniently upgraded into existing aircraft.

“The environmentally friendly PhostrEx system is nothing short of remarkable. With it’s low weight, low cost, and maintenance-free design, PhostrEx will quickly become the Halon alternative of choice not only for aviation but for many other industry applications” stated Mason Holland, CEO and Chairman of Eclipse Aerospace Thursday.

Eclipse Aerospace has placed a production order for the new canisters, which are expected to be available for purchase beginning August, 2011.

PhostrEx was approved by the EPA and the FAA as a replacement for Halon on aircraft engines and is the only approved fire suppression system that meets the ecological standards of the Montreal Protocol.
