By converting massive waste into pyrolysis oil, continuous pyrolysis plant represents a technological leap forward in waste recycling. This plant has uninterrupted operation mode and large-scale processing capacity. Therefore, it provides an efficient solution for processing of industrial and municipal waste. From the perspective of potential investment prospects, pyrolysis oil has a good market as an alternative energy source. The machine produces oil efficiently and has huge profit potential.

What is Continuous Pyrolysis Plant?

Fully continuous pyrolysis plant is a specialized industrial facility. It is designed to continuously convert large amounts of solid waste into valuable products through a pyrolysis process. The scope of waste treatment includes scrap tires, plastics, and oil sludge. Pyrolysis is the thermal desorption process of solid waste at high temperatures in the absence of oxygen. This process causes complex materials to break down into simpler compounds such as syngas, pyrolysis oil, and carbon black. In particular, the machine’s high degree of automation makes it the preferred solution for large-scale solid waste treatment.

  • Source of raw materials: Plastic recycling industry
  • Oil yield: 20%-90%
  • Feeding requirements: The length requirement for rigid plastics (thickness greater than 1mm) is 1-5mm. Soft plastics (thickness less than 1mm) need to be pressed into blocks. Diameter 3cm, length within 3cm;
  • Processing capacity: 0.83-1.04/h

oil sludge for continuous pyrolysis plant

Oil Sludge

Oil sludge is a complex mixture formed from the extraction, transportation or refining of crude oil. Pyrolysis treatment is a more environmentally friendly method for this solid waste.

  • Types of oil sludge: oil tank sediments, crude oil pipeline residues, crude oil mining contaminated soil, etc.;
  • Source of raw materials: Industrial hazardous waste treatment industry
  • Oil yield: 40%
  • Processing capacity: 1.87-2.08t/h


1. It is not recommended to handle multiple types of materials at the same time.
2. The oil yield of materials mixed with different components is variable. Therefore, sample testing is required.
3. Special materials require special analysis or sample testing to determine the process plan.

How Does Continuous Pyrolysis Plant Work?


It takes 3-4h to preheat the main furnace. Materials can be fed when the main furnace is preheated to 300-350°C. The preheating process requires a burner.
After the raw materials are pre-processed, the particle size reaches 1-5mm. The conveyor then transports the material to the sealed silo. The rubber powder in the sealed silo is added to the main furnace through the feeding screw.



The reaction starts when the pyrolysis reaction temperature reaches about 450°C. In a closed oxygen-poor state, the raw materials decompose into a mixture of oil gas. The main furnace uses hot air from the secondary combustion chamber for indirect heating. Not directly heating the main furnace makes the temperature rise more stable.
The oil gas passes through the three-stage oil passage condenser to obtain liquefied pyrolysis oil. Then, pyrolysis oil is stored in storage tanks. The condensation system uses a vacuum pump to increase the fluidity of the pyrolysis gas. Thus, the pressure in the furnace is maintained constant.


Combustible Gas&Carbon Black Collection

Combustible Gas: The reaction produces high-temperature combustible gas. Recycled to the secondary combustion chamber, the combustible gas is mixed with high-temperature hot air to heat the pyrolysis reactor.
Carbon Black: First, carbon black is extracted through the first slag discharge spiral. After passing through two water-cooled slag discharge spirals, it enters the carbon black temporary storage tank via a bucket elevator. Subsequently, it is cooled by circulating water in the carbon black temporary storage tank. Finally, when the temperature drops below 60℃, it is discharged from the carbon black temporary storage tank.


Flue Gas Treatment

The high-temperature flue gas first enters the air distribution heat exchanger. In this process, the flue gas temperature is used to preheat the air. The flue gas then enters the flue condenser. After it cools down, it absorbs impurities through activated carbon. Finally, the flue gas undergoes desulfurization and denitrification treatment. Our high-end exhaust gas treatment systems can meet EU emission standards.
