Today the problem of burning batteries in aircraft is not solved, burning batteries are a topic putting the application and usage of batteries in aircraft in question.
Especially in cases when it is not possible to suppress the fire it is a big problem to handle the burning passenger devices during flight. Handling of burning batteries could be done with the implementation of a pressure sluice. The pressure sluice would be used in case of a burning device which needs be removed from the passenger cabin resp. from inside of the aircraft. In such an event the burning device is placed inside the fireproof sluice, and the process is started.
- Process start - Opening of inner door - Placing burning device in the sluice - Closing inner door - Device is shredded to assure that no big burning parts are going outside the plane, only small pieces are produced, which will not reach the ground level in burning condition - Outer door is opened, passenger device is pushed outwards the airplane - Outer door is closed - Process finalized
1. PRESSURE SLUICE WITH / WITHOUT SHREDDER IN DIFFERENT LOCATIONS
The technical field of the present idea relates to usage of batteries for electric flight Several plug-in electric vehicle fire incidents have taken place since the introduction of mass-production plug-in electric vehicles in 2010. Most of them have been thermal runaway incidents related to the lithium- ion batteries and have involved the Zotye M300 EV, Chevrolet Volt, Fisker Karma, Dodge Ram 1500 Plug- in Hybrid, Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid, Mitsubishi i-MiEV and Outlander P-HEV. Air travellers are being warned not to use their smartphones on planes after companies recalled the devices over complaints the batteries can catch fire: http://money.cnn.com/2016/09/08/technology/samsung-galaxy-note-7-airlines-battery-fires/ LITHIUM BATTERIES & LITHIUM BATTERY-POWERED DEVICES - As of 9/15/2016 FAA Office of Security and Hazardous Materials Safety – https://www.faa.gov/about/office_org/headquarters_offices/ash/ash_programs/hazmat/aircarrier_info/medi a/Battery_incident_chart.pdf Therefore, a solution is needed to manage incidents caused by thermal runaways of lithium-ion batteries used in Portable Electronic Devices (PED) throughout the aircraft.
