1) Dust Explosivity: Examines and analyzes explosive characteristics of the dust sample.
2) Minimum Ignition Energy, MIE: Identifies minimum energy required to ignite a dust cloud. (Examines sample sensitivity to ignition from electrostatic discharge.)
3) Minimum Autoignition Temperature, MAIT: Identifies the minimum temperature at which a dust cloud will autoignite.
4) Minimum Explosive Concentration, MEC: Identifies the minimum explosive concentration of a dust cloud.
5) Hot-Surface Ignition Temperature of Dust Layer: Identifies the minimum temperature at which a dust layer will ignite.
6) Limiting Oxygen Concentration: Identifies the minimum oxygen concentration at which a dust can explode.
7) Drop Impact: Identifies the impact force required to ignite a dust layer.
8) Friction Sensitivity: Identifies the frictional force required to ignite a dust layer.
9) Volume and Surface Resistivity: Measures the conductivity of a dust sample.
10) Dielectric Constant: Identifies AC loss characteristics and permittivity of dust sample.
11) Differential Scanning Calorimetry, DSC: Identifies the temperature range at which the dust sample undergoes exothermic decomposition or is susceptible to oxidation along with the specific heat of the sample.
12) Accelerating Rate Calorimetry: Identifies the dust samples onset temperature for exothermic activity.
