Argus Ban List
We currently have 6 stickies containing info on individual manufacturers that are now banning the Argus. I thought it might be time to tidy them up. Here is the current list (as best as I can tell) UPDATED: 24 JUNE 2011
>Apparently Sunrise is not banning Argus for Wings containers.
That makes sense; the location of the cutter in the Wings container will not result in a locked container if the cutter fires but does not cut the loop. (True of Javelins as well.) However, it does not protect against a partially severed loop that breaks later during handling of the rig, so it's still important to inspect the AAD to see if that has happened.
Re: The ban for the Dolphin by Altico, I have just received a
CANCELLATION OF SERVICE BULLETIN #ASB 032411
It says in part:
"After further consideration, and review of additional information, Altico has reached the conclusion tht because of the location of the cutter on the Dolphin, it would not be possible for that scenario to occur on a Dolphin."
