Abstract

Quartz and stainless steel are widely used as materials for the construction of bench-scale coal pyrolysis reactors. Similarly, silica and zircon sands are often used as fluidized heating media in benchscale fluidized-bed reactors. In a study, it is found that quartz, zircon and sand and stainless steel can reduce significantly gas phase concentrations of NH 3 at temperatures about 700°C. Alternatively, the interactions between NH 3 and surfaces need to be evaluated under relevant conditions.
