Foam Based Fire Suppression System

Muster Foam based Fire Suppression Systems are the most suitable solution for the protection of assets where liquid hydrocarbon fuels pose a high fire risk. Water alone is ineffective and can even be dangerous. The introduction of foam amplifies the effectiveness of water by breaking down the surface tension, making the droplets smaller, and enhancing the cooling effect.

The role of the foam in the solution is to create a blanket sealing the vapours preventing ignition. The role of the water in the solution is to provide cooling. Foams are supplied in concentrates that are appropriately proportioned with water. They are then aspirated with nitrogen gas to produce the foam bubbles and discharged through a pre-engineered Fire Suppression System specifically designed to protect the risk areas. A Muster Foam System can be used as a standalone Fire Suppression system or in conjunction with IPS or SAG as a dual agent system.

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.

Cylinder Valves

Manufactured from a single piece of billet stainless steel, our cylinder valves are designed to provide the reliability and performance you expect from an engineered fire suppression system. Depending on the application and system configuration, Muster cylinder valves can be either electronic or pneumatically activated.

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.

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.

Benefits of Foam Fire Suppression System

Using a foam fire suppression system has many advantages.

Foam fire suppression systems are quite efficient in putting out fires. In order to put out a fire, foam agents produce a thick, insulating blanket that covers the burning fuel.

Fires of all classes (Class A, B, and C) can be put out with foam fire suppression systems, proving their adaptability. They have many potential applications, from commercial and industrial buildings to storage facilities and even private homes.

Foam fire suppression systems use a foam agent that requires less water to be effective than traditional water-based fire suppression systems. This can lessen the extent of water damage to the property and lessen the likelihood of further water damage.

Quick action is possible because foam fire suppression systems can be set up to automatically respond to fires or to require manual activation in the event of an emergency. A quicker response time increases the likelihood that the fire can be contained and that the fire won’t spread to other parts of the structure.

When compared to alternative fire prevention systems, such as sprinklers or clean agent systems, foam fire suppression systems may be the most cost-effective option. Because they use less water and can be tailored to protect individual sections of a structure, their installation and upkeep costs can be kept to a minimum.

Fires may be put out with minimal water damage, response times can be improved, and costs can be kept to a minimum with the help of a foam fire suppression system.
