3 factors affecting the oil yield of pyrolysis of scrap tyre

The oil yield of waste tyre is between 40%-50% depending on type of tyre, pyrolysis temperature and cooling effect..

1. Type of tire

There are different kinds of scrap tyres, and the amount of rubber contained is one of the factors affecting the oil output of scrap tyres. For example, the output of large car tires, truck tires, engineering tires, cars, motorcycles, and bicycle tires is somewhat different. In general, the oil yield of scrap tyres is about 40%-45%. 0.4 ton - 0.45 ton tyre pyrolysis oil, that is about 4000-4500liters of tyre oil can be got from 1ton waste tyre. According to the feedback from our customers who already installed our waste tyre pyrolysis plant, the relatively large waste tires will have a higher oil yield, and the smaller scrap tyres will have a lower oil output.

2. Pyrolysis temperature

A good pyrolysis temperature control is very important for good tyre oil yield. If temperature too low, the tyre cannot fully pyrolyzed, to say nothing of high oil output. Similarly, if temperature too high, oil gas will run out of cooling system as the tail gas, then oil output will also has discount.

3. Cooling effect

Cooling effect of the continuous waste tyre pyrolysis plant also greatly influence the tyre oil yield. Cooling effect is decided by the heating exchanging area, a strong cooling system always have bigger cooling area. Good cooling effect can ensure all of the oil gas is condensed into oil and then get more oil from waste tyre.

So there are many factors that can affect the oil yield of pyrolysis of scrap tyre. For same tyre, if you wanna get more oil, please do not feel hesitated to inquire us.
