This study was performed in Hartmann type dust explosion apparatus in order to research the dust explosion characteristics of hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose(HPMC): minimum explosive limit, minimum ignition energy, limiting oxygen concentration, maximum explosion pressure, rate of pressure rise, etc. The samples of HPMC dust were distributed into 120-140 mesh, 170-230 mesh and 325 under, and the gap distance of the discharge electrode was setted up at 5mm. The experimental results were obtained as follows: (1) The minimum explosive limit for HPMC dust was founded at 180g/㎥. the minimum ignition energy at 9.8mJ and the limiting oxygen concentration at 12%. (2) The maximum explosion pressure of HPMC dust was $8.1kg/cm^2\;{\cdot}\;$abs at the concentration of $500g/m^3$ and the maximum rate of pressure rise was 203.98 bar/sec at the concentration of $480g/m^3$ for 325 under.
