Impulse Powder System

Impulse Powder System Banner

Muster Impulse Powder System (IPS) are a self-generating Fire Suppression device containing a special dry chemical powder which when electrically or thermally activated produces gases which increase the pressure within the canister. The pressure then causes the powder to fluidise and when it reaches a certain pressure a membrane will rupture and allow the powder to expel from the canister. IPS canisters are available in multiple sizes and can be mounted directly within the risk area to be protected.

Alternatively, the powder can be discharged through a pre-designed pipe network with multiple nozzles to the identified protected risk area. The powders suppressing action is achieved via the dilution of the flame zone with a powder-gas cloud and by creating a powder particle fire blanket on the surface of the burning material. IPS units are environmentally safe and do not contribute to global atmospheric warming or ozone depletion.

They can be configured as a standalone Fire Suppression system or in conjunction with SAG or Foam as a dual agent system.

  • Rapid discharge dry chemical powder for fast knockdown effect.
  • Self-generating, non-pressurised canisters.
  • Suitable for local area applications.
  • Resistant to vibration, corrosion & moisture ingress.
  • 7-10 year operational life.

Key Components

Alarm Panel

The heart of every electronic Muster Fire Suppression System is our exclusive alarm panel. The Muster Alarm Panel is an advanced integrated device that provides a complete solution which incorporates control, monitoring, and activation of our Muster Fire Suppression Systems. Depending on the requirements of the installation or the customer, the Alarm Panel is configured to support either LHD or LOP fire detection.

Remote Actuators

Available in either push-button or a lever design, Muster Remote Actuators are manufactured from the same high quality stainless steel used throughout the Muster range. Available in both electronic LHD and pneumatic LOP versions, Remote Actuators enable the operator to trigger activation of the fire suppression system manually at the first sign of a potential fire.


MusterWire is the detection method used in our electronic (LHD) fire suppression systems and is available in various temperature ratings to suit any application. MusterWire has a high-performance fluoro jacket giving it superior protection from abrasion, chemical permeation, weather and direct sunlight. The core of the wire consists of two strands of conductive wire that are separated by a heat sensitive polymer. When the wiring is exposed to the rated temperature, the polymer melts and the twin strands arc and send a signal to the Muster Alarm Panel which the actuates the fire Suppression System.

Integration Module

The advanced Muster Integration module can accommodate up to 8 SAG canisters per installation. It provides the communication link for system monitoring and activation between the Muster Alarm panel and the SAG canister.

Diagnostics Module

The Muster Diagnostics Module allows technicians to leverage all of the innovations built into the Muster Alarm Panel. The multiple screen display shows real time information relating to alarm panel parameters, system pressure, battery status, software updates and other information required to comprehensively maintain your fire suppression system.  Further information is available by downloading the data logs from the diagnostics module onto a PC using the Muster Diagnostics Application.
