Minimum ignition temperature Test – KELVN Safety Services Pvt Ltd

The minimum ignition temperature (MIT) test determines the lowest temperature required to ignite a
dust cloud in air.
Hot surfaces capable of igniting dust clouds can exist in a number of situations in industry. Inside
furnaces, burners, and dryers of various kinds they constitute part of the process equipment itself.
Hot surfaces can also be generated by electrical heating and hot work, and by frictional overheating of
bearings and other mechanical parts.
