The paper describes the impact of adding fire extinguishing powders acting based on oxygen or flame on values of minimum ignition temperatures of the layer and cloud of pellet dust, and as a consequence the impact or lack of impact on values of maximum admissible temperature on external surfaces of electrical appliances working in their atmospheres. Tests were conducted of the minimum ignition temperature of layer and cloud of the agro armakow pellet dust and the agro jesień pellet dust, with and without additives of fire extinguishing powders BC Jet, BC LB2, ABC 90 and Ogniotex 103 at concentrations ranging from 5 to 70% by weight of powder contents in the mixture. Based on obtained test results it has been ascertained that type ABC powders appear to be much more effective than those type BC, because they have a much bigger impact on increasing the minimum ignition temperature of the layer and the cloud of analysed dust types. Adding only 15% of ABC 90 extinguishing powder to the agro jesień pellet has caused an increase in the minimum ignition temperature of dust layer by 80°C. The BC LB2 powder with agro armakow pellet dust has not been found to cause any changes, even at its concentration as high as 70%. The most optimum additive of powder to the biomass dust was 10% by weight of ABC powder in the mixture. At this concentration the highest increase was recorded in the maximum admissible temperature on the outer surface of electrical appliances from 235°C to 273°C.
