Can rubber be turned into oil? What's the conversion process?

Rubber can be turned into oil. There is a machine on the market called pyrolysis machine, which can decompose waste rubber (such as waste tires, rubber cable sheath, rubber soles, rubber sheets, etc.) into fuel oil and carbon black at high temperature. Today we will take the DOING pyrolysis machine as an example to introduce the rubber into oil conversion pyrolysis process.

The first step is feeding. Our batch type waste rubber pyrolysis machine can directly process the whole waste rubber, while the continuous type requires processing it into rubber powder before feeding. The feeding method can be manual feeding or machine feeding.

If a grabbing machine is used in conjunction with an automatic feeding machine, the entire feeding process only requires two workers to operate, and the time is about 1.5 to 2 hours, which can fill a reactor with a daily processing capacity of 12 tons. There are many customers who choose auto feeders and save time and labor.

The second step is heating and pyrolysis. After the feeding is completed, the combustion burners need to be opened to heat the reactor.

1. By controlling the burners to maintain the temperature between 230-260degrees. This temperature range is the first oil output stage, which lasts about four hours.

2. Next is the constant temperature reaction stage, that is, the second oil output stage. Where the temperature will decrease and it needs to be controlled to gradually increase until the oil output decreases. At this time, the rubber in the reactor has basically completed pyrolysis.

3. Finally, heat it over high heat, ensuring that all the rubber can be converted into oil gas.

The third step is the condensation stage. And our condensation system is composed of two vertical condensers, one oil-water separator, two horizontal condensers, and two cooling towers. Through multiple condensation systems, it can ensure that all oil and gas can be condensed, ensuring a high oil rate. Besides, all condensers use circulating cooling water, achieving zero discharge of wastewater.

After all the oil gas is cooled into liquid oil, the oil from each sub oil tank can be pumped to the oil tank storage area. This liquid oil is rubber pyrolysis oil, which can be directly sold to the industrial plants as fuel for boiler heating, such as steel plants, cement plants, power plants, etc.
