High OAT Fire Bottle Thermal Discharge

Has anyone else experienced fire bottles thermally discharging due to high ambient temps? We've seen a few cargo bottles blow their thermal relief plugs over the past month due to high ambient temps.

RE: Regional Jet Fuel Consumption?

I forgot to add that the OAT will affect engine fuel flow rates quite a bit. I've seen idle ranges anywhere from 370 pph up to 430 pph. Of course the individual engine rigging etc. can also have a slight affect one way or another.

RE: Regional Jet Fuel Consumption?

The CRJ-200 CF34-3B1's each burn roughly 400 pph at idle. At takeoff power I think it's around 2400-2500 pph if I remember correctly. The APU burns around 120-150 pph depending mainly on bleed load, and to a much lesser extent, electrical load.
