Phosphorus can react with alkali during combustion, forming low melting phosphates that glue the bed particles together, or form phosphates that react with the bed material. In this work, seven different phosphate compounds (KH2PO4, NaH2PO4, CaHPO4, NH4H2PO4, K3PO4, Na3PO4, Ca3(PO4)2) were tested. Experiments were performed in an electrically heated laboratory-scale fluidized bed reactor at 750, 800, 850 and 900 °C and the feeding of the phosphates continued until defluidization occurred or until 10 g of a phosphate-compound had been added.
