Pyrolysis Plant Cost

When planning to start a pyrolysis project, the pyrolysis plant cost is a major concern for many investors. The cost of setting up the entire project comprises several parts. In addition, some factors will affect the profitability of the plant after it is put into operation. Therefore, the evaluation of the cost of a pyrolysis plant is important. If you want to know how to make the most of your investment budget, please continue reading.

Factors Affecting Pyrolysis Machine Price

The pyrolysis machine cost accounts for a large portion of the initial investment. Therefore, it is essential to understand the factors that affect the price of the machine. Beston’s machine prices start at $45,000. By choosing a suitable machine, investors can lay a solid foundation for later project construction. The following are some key factors.

Operation Mode

  • Skid-Mounted: Such a mobile pyrolysis unit adopts a modular design. It can only process raw materials on a small scale. In addition, the accessories are simple to make up. Therefore, it has the lowest price.
  • Batch: This machine uses intermittent feeding and discharging. It does not have high requirements on the feed size. Therefore, it saves the cost of raw material pretreatment equipment.
  • Semi-Continuous: This type of machine uses an automatic feeding screw and three water-cooled slag discharges on a batch type. Therefore, its price also increases with the upgrade of configuration.
  • Fully Continuous: This machine can process raw materials on a large scale. Due to its higher automation and advanced pyrolysis technology, this kind of machine is typically more expensive.

Input Capacity

The input capacity of the continuous pyrolysis plant is a significant determinant of its price. The larger the machine capacity, the higher the requirements for the process plan. Therefore, higher-capacity machines generally cost more than smaller machines. Beston Group can provide machines with capacity from 3 t/d to 35 t/d.

Main Furnace Material

The main furnace usually uses stainless steel materials such as 304 and 310S. However, 310S material has stronger heat resistance and corrosion resistance. Therefore, a main furnace made of 310S is usually more expensive than 304 stainless steel. Usually, when it comes to plastic pyrolysis, 310S is the first choice.

Optional Configuration

The inclusion of optional equipment can significantly affect the price. For pyrolysis plants, configuration options include tyre pretreatment machine, catalysis equipment, condensation system, exhaust gas treatment system, and oil distillation equipment. All in all, the more complex and advanced the options, the higher the price.

Why Choose Beston Group as Pyrolysis Plant Manufacturer?

Advanced Pyrolysis Technology Brings Considerable Return

Full Utilization of Resources: Beston’s pyrolysis technology can make the best use of resources. In the flue gas recovery system, high-temperature syngas is purified. The combustible gas then continues to provide heat to the main furnace. In addition, the heavy oil in the residue tank can be directly re-entered into the main furnace for re-pyrolysis or directly mixed into the cracked oil after stratification.
High-Quality Pyrolysis Oil: The high-quality pyrolysis oil produced by the Beston pyrolysis reactor can be profited in many ways. It can be sold directly as fuel oil. In addition, pyrolysis oil can also be distilled to obtain heavy oil components for use in heavy oil generator sets for power generation.  Distillation equipment can process pyrolysis oil into non-standard diesel. It can be sold for a better price.
