 Aircraft Fire Protection Systems

To detect fires or overheat conditions, detectors are placed Fire Protection Systems in the various zones to be monitored. Fires are detected in reciprocating engine and small turboprop aircraft using one or more of the following:
1. Overheat detectors
2. Rate-of-temperature-rise detectors
3. Flame detectors
4. Observation by crewmembers
In addition to these methods, other types of detectors are Fire Protection Systems used in aircraft fire protection systems but are seldom used to detect engine fires. For example, smoke detectors are better suited to monitor areas where materials burn slowly Fire Protection Systems or smolder, such as cargo and baggage compartments.
Other types of detectors in this category include carbon monoxide detectors and chemical sampling equipment capable of detecting combustible mixtures that can lead to accumulations of explosive gases.
The complete aircraft fire protection systems of most large turbine-engine aircraft incorporate several of these different Fire Protection Systems detection methods.
1. Rate-of-temperature-rise detectors
2. Radiation sensing detectors
3. Smoke detectors
4. Overheat detectors
5. Carbon monoxide detectors
6. Combustible mixture detectors
7. Optical detectors
8. Observation of crew or passengers
