    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies a method of test to determine the minimum ignition energy of a dust/air mixture by an electrically generated high-voltage d.c. spark. This test method is intended to develop data to be used in deciding whether or not combustible dust/air mixtures are considered to be ignitable with respect to electrical discharge.
