Principle of operation of industrial rubber recycling plant:


The construction is based on the method of pyrolysis with rotating drum. The permanent material rotation causes its uniform pyrolysis, process acceleration, carbon residue milling and metal cord separation by twisting it into a single bunch.

Materials are heated into a closed space without access for air. Organic compounds convert into synthesis gas and go into a condensation system. At this step the materials are thermally treated into reactor within 12 hours.

Detailed information about tyres recycling process

Loading device

Innovation loading device allows to load tyres inside the reactor continuously in the automatic mode, that increases process efficiency and safety. While this process there is no peak value for the condensation system at maximum gas output, as the reactor is loaded partially and a few tyres are being pirolyzed at the same time. Additional loading is made into “boiling” layer, that increases efficiency of material thermal destruction.

Condensation line

Gas discharged from the reactor into the condensation line goes without usage of smoke exhausters, because of occurrence of its own pressure during the pyrolysis process. That minimizes a discharge of carbon dust and its ingress into the pipelines. After cooling the most part of synthetic gas turns into a fuel oil. Fuel heavy fractions are separated in order to improve its liquidity and further using in diesel burners.

Uploading of carbon residue

Uploading of carbon residue occurs just after the pyrolysis cycle, hermetically to outer aunger, then it goes to storage capacitor for further cooling. Carbon residue uploading unit is made inside the reactor and does not have movable parts, what provides its safety and efficiency. Uploading process is dust-free because of unit hermiticity. It allows to upload the carbon residue into a separated “dirty” room for packing.

Uploading of metal cord

After long-time rotation of reactor the metal cord twists into a single compact bunch, easy for transportation. In order to avoid workshop dustiness during the unloading a screen is used. After the reactor the metal cord gets in pit and rolls down by angle subterranean base out of workshop, where it is washed by water from carbon dust and then it is ready for dispatch.

Production features

Features of tyres recycling technology:

Technology security

  • Important pipelines are duplicated in case of jamming or a situation when pressure release is required.
  • Line is equipped with monitoring sensors at all sections.
  • Operating pressure into the system is 0,1-0,3 Atm.
  • Partially rubber loading into the reactor minimizes one-time accumulation of combustible agents.
  • In case of increased pressure an alarm system goes off, as well as a pressure release system in automatic mode.
  • No sources of fire and oxygen by the reactor.
  • Uniform discharge of pirolyzed gas reduces the condensation line loading.
  • Permanently usage of our own plant allowed us to detect all weak points and eliminated it for a total security of construction.
