The explosion risk is one of the major industrial risks, being present in all units which produce, use, handle, store or transport hazardous substances, products with flammable and explosive properties. Equipment designed for use in potentially explosive atmospheres must be manufactured so that the ignition of the surrounding explosive atmosphere is avoided. One of the ignition sources of an explosive atmosphere is represented by surface temperature. The paper presents the influence of surface
