Aircraft fire extinguishing systems are a crucial part of any private aircraft, putting out onboard fires before they can harm passengers or equipment. Aviation fire extinguisher cartridges, also called squibs, play a crucial role in your fire suppressant system’s performance. These components act as the force that drives the extinguishing agent out of the aircraft storage bottles.
Squibs are miniature explosives found in the discharge valves of your private plane’s extinguishing agent containers. These devices rupture the storage bottle to release the fire suppressant and put out the flames.
