How It Works

IPEX – Impulse Powder Extinguishing Module


Construction of an Impulse IPEX-8 modules

1) Metal casing
Mounting flange
Electrically activated non-pressurised solid gas generator
Extinguishing agent/medium
Discharge nozzle

IPEX module is a non-pressurised self-contained metal canister delivering a gas-powder extinguishing medium into a fire zone within a few seconds from the commencement of the discharge.

The impulse discharge is achieved due to a special non-pressurised solid gas generator incorporated into the canister containing a special extinguishing powder. Upon activation of the system the gas generator operates releasing gases. The gases rapidly build up an internal pressure and aerate the extinguishing powder resulting in an impulse gas-powder delivery through a specially designed discharge outlet.
