Successful Lithium Battery Test Conducted

Fire Containment Cover-networkAmSafe Bridport says it has successfully conducted a full scale test withstanding a lithium-ion battery fire, within its certified fire containment cover (FCC) system and its new fire containment bag (FCB).
The UK company announced its FCC suppressed a lithium battery fire for more than six hours.
Its fire containment range is designed for the protection of undeclared dangerous goods, with lithium batteries posing the biggest risk to air transport. Dangerous goods, including lithium batteries continue to be packed incorrectly, with a large number of accidents and near misses directly attributed to fire from these types of batteries.
