This article focuses on determination of the minimum ignition energy of dust. For the measurement of the minimum ignition energy of dust are available device from different manufacturers. In this article, the comparison device from three manufacturers - Chilworth, Kühner and Anko are executed. For the experimental measurement of the minimum minimum ignition energy was chosen 5 dust samples so that they are represented sample of organic dust, synthetic organic dust and coal dust. The article briefly introduces each apparatus for determining the minimum ignition energy and there is a comparison of the results obtained with individual devices. Finally, it is an assessment the results obtained and used test equipment.
