Description / Abstract:

This section of IEC 1241-2 specifies two test methods for determining the minimum ignition temperatures of dust.

The methods are not suitable for use with substances having explosive properties.

Method A (clause 4) is applicable to the determination of the minimum temperature of a prescribed hot surface which will result in the decomposition and/or ignition of a layer of dust of a specified thickness deposited on it. The method is particularly relevant to industrial equipment with which dust is present on hot surfaces in thin layers exposed to the atmosphere.

Method B (clause 5) is applicable to the determination of the minimum temperature of a prescribed hot surface which will result in the ignition of a cloud of a given sample of dust or other particulate solid. The test is intended to be carried out as a complementary test after determining the minimum ignition temperature of a dust layer by method A of this standard.

NOTES concerning method B

1 Because the method of operation of the furnace gives short residence times for dust particles within it, this method of test is applicable to industrial equipment where dust is present as a cloud for a short time. This method of test is of small scale and the results are not necessarily representative of all industrial conditions.

2 The method is not applicable to dusts which may, over a longer period of time than provided for in the test method, produce from deposits gases generated during pyrolysis or smouldering.
