Recycling used tires is not only environmentally friendly, but it can also help you earn cash. If you want to recycle tires for money as a business, there are several ways for your reference:
1. Sell Tires to the Recycling Center
It is convenient for the individual. However, due to it is difficult to dispose of and consumes a lot of space in landfills, you may have to pay for recycling tires. Some governments imposed a levy on new tires for recycling. It is expensive for someone who has lots of tires or rubber products, such as conveyor belts to process. While on the other hand, it means there are rich cheap raw materials, which makes the tyre recycling business more profitable.
2. Selling Tires for Retread
If there are no deep cracks or are worn flat, retread companies will pay up to $40 per tire based on the condition. However, most states won’t allow you to haul more than five tires unless you have a license.
3. Recycle Tires with a Shredder
Tyre shredding machine can cut tires into rubber materials, which will be then used to make everything from mulch, rubber mats, asphalt, etc. In addition, the shredded tires are also popular as a substitute for sand or clay in civil engineerings, such as road and landfill construction, landfill cover, septic tank fields, and many construction jobs. Of course, you can sell the shredded tires to the pyrolysis plant.
4. Use Pyrolysis Plant to Convert Tire to Oil
Pyrolysis means to heat the whole or shredded tires to produce oil under an oxygen-free atmosphere. It can also produce carbon black, steel wire, and combustible gas. Then you can sell these products for cash. Below are the applications of these end products.
|Pyrolysis oil||35-45%||1. Used as fuel to heat the pyrolysis reactor
2. Reprocessed into diesel or gasoline by oil distillation machine, which can be used in heavy industries such as steel, iron and boiler factories, ceramics, power, chemical industries.
|Carbon Black||30-35%||1. Used as construction material or low-grade fuel or as filler in the rubber industry, paints and coatings, ink production and other industrial applications
2. Making carbon brick by briquetting equipment and sell
|Steel Wire||8-15%||1. Sell directly
2. Making steel bloom by hydraulic press-packing
|Combustible Gas||8-15%||Alternative fuel to heat the reactor (self-sufficient pyrolysis process)|
How to Recycle Tires for Money with Pyrolysis?
Pyrolysis is a burgeoning way to recycle old tires for cash because it is good for the investors and the environment. Let’s review the tyre pyrolysis process in detail. You can also check Beston Youtube for some pyrolysis plant videos.
1. Pre-treatment System
If you employ a continuous pyrolysis unit or an automatic feeding system, you need to make sure the tires are smaller than 20 mm and the moisture content is less than 15%. Also, you can use a wire drawing machine to pull out the steel wire before pyrolysis. Of course, you can buy the shredded tires directly or you can buy shredders, dryers, etc. We will equip the auxiliary equipment if you need. You may find the pyrolysis plant cost varies with capacity, working method, the auxiliary equipment, etc. Beston suggests that choose the model fits you the best, which is the best solution for you to make money from tyre recycling.
2. Pyrolysis Process
After feeding the tires into the pyrolysis reactor, the inlet feeding door is tightly sealed to ensure there are no gas leakages to ensure safety. Then heat the reactor with wood, fuel gas, charcoal, or coal. When the temperature reaches 200℃, oil gas will be generated. And there will be a lot of oil gas when the temperature is between 300 and 350℃. Meanwhile, the oil gas will go through the condensing-system where it will become liquid oil. While the gas which cannot be liquefied will go back to the combustion-system as fuel after desulphurization. This design makes the tyre pyrolysis plant almost self-sufficient to lower your cost. The safety and energy-saving design will help you make money recycling tires maximally.
3. Discharging System
During the pyrolysis process, we can also get carbon black. In order to keep workers safe, the temperature should be below 40℃. You can wait to cool down or use a water cooling system. Beston pyrolysis plant is equipped with a fully-sealed discharging system with water cooling tubes to cool down quickly while stopping fly ash. By the way, discharging is an urgent problem for the most batch pyrolysis plant in India and other countries. In order to deal with it safely with less cost, we have designed batch to continuous solution. Welcome to contact us for details!
4. De-dusting System
De-dusting system is used to cool down and clean up the off gas. It usually includes water spray, ceramic ring adsorption, and activated carbon adsorption, etc. Anyway, we will make sure the pyrolysis plant is eco-friendly to meet your local emission standard. Below is the tyre pyrolysis equipment Beston offers.
|Working Method||Batch||Semi-Continuous||Fully Continuous|
|Raw Materials||Waste Tyre, Waste Plastic, Rubber, Oil Sludge, etc.|
|Pattern||Horizontal & Rotary|
|Heating Materials||Charcoal, Wood, Fuel Oil, Natural Gas, LPG, etc.|
|Floor Area (L*W*H)||30*10*8m||30*10*8m||40*10*8m||45*25*10m|
