In the herein paper the results of research carried out in the Institute of Thermal Machinery of Technical University of Czestochowa have been presented. They concern the process of combustion of coal particles in a fluidized bed combustor. The tests were carried out on a test stand which allows modelling of conditions around the fuel particle in a real object. On the basis of the registered mass loss of the particles of Polish hard and brown coal chosen, the impact of the mass flow rate of inert material with different particle size distribution and different collision velocity with burning coal particle on the rate and level of its burning out was evaluated. The obtained results enables the estimation of the influence of both parameters on the intensity of erosion and determination of its role in the generation of fine particles elutriated out of the combustion chamber. The results also facilitated the verification of the methodology  of calculation described in literature relating to the total mass loss of coal particles as a result of combustion and erosion. According to this methodology, the slip velocity between the char particle and the fine bed solid is the main parameter of the erosion process alongside the attrition rate constant ka.
