3.1 combustible dust finely divided solid particles,500 um or less in nominal size,which may form explosivemixtures with air at standard atmospheric pressure and temperatures.
Note 1 to entry: This includes dust and grit as defined in ISo 4225.
Note 2 to entry: The term solid particles is intended to address particles in the solid phase and not the gaseous orliquid phase, but does not preclude a hollow particle.
3.2 explosive dust atmosphere mixture with air,under atmospheric conditions,of flammable substances in the form of dust,fibres or flyings which,after ignition, permits self-sustaining propagation.
Note 1 to entry: Minimum ignition energy values for common dusts can be found in IEC 60335-2-69.
