Q & A with Ray

Raymond Goyco, Jr. is CEO at Baker Aviation Services Group and co-founded HOT-STOP 'L' Fire Containment more than 17-years ago. His knowledge of lithium-ion battery containment in today's powerful portable devices is exceptional and his passion for safety goes above and beyond.

Why is it important to contain the lithium battery device without venting the gases?

One important difference in our HOT-STOP ‘L’ technology is that after the runaway device is securely placed into our vessel and sealed, there is no toxic smoke, or carcinogens allowed to vent into the aircraft cabin. Why is that important? Allow me to explain.

If you read the United Airlines incident story above, you will notice it was reported that the crew contained the fiery battery pack inside a containment bag. The injuries and precautionary hospital visits were related to the smoke inhalation emitted into the cabin before the device was secured inside the vessel. The excessive amounts of toxic smoke and gases from lithium battery fires are concerning and certainly a health hazard that should be avoided. [reference]. Therefore, HOT-STOP ‘L’ EVO containment kits are designed to contain and absorb 100% of all those toxic chemicals released from such a fire and without the need for venting the bag like other products do. In addition, the importance of quickly placing the runaway device into the bag is paramount to minimize the impact of these toxic gases. The quick and easy deployment of HOT-STOP is also by design and no aqueous liquids are required, they are only optional if this is part of your containment procedure. As a reminder water will assist in cooling but will not eliminate the threat from a lithium-ion battery runaway event, reference waterproof ratings IP67 and IP68.
