IPEX

IMPULSE POWDER EXTINGUISHING MODULES

Aggressive Environments    |    Reliable    |    No Pressure Cylinders

The IPEX module is a non-pressurised self-contained metal canister delivering a gas-powder extinguishing medium into a fire zone within seconds from activation.

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 outlet.

IPEX is highly versatile – it can be installed in small enclosure (with no piping) or large areas (with simple piping and 4-6 distribution nozzles). IPEX has no pressure gauges and no moving parts – therefore it is easy to install and maintain.

Due to its heavy-duty modules which can withstand up to 95°C temperature, high vibration and extreme humidity levels, IPEX is highly suitable for aggressive environments.
