Pyro equals heat, lysis equals breakdown into parts. Pyrolysis is chemical reaction that large molecules are broken down into smaller molecules. The simplest example of pyrolysis: cooking is a pyrolysis process that complex food molecules are broken down into smaller and easily digestible molecules.
Waste plastic and tire are long chain molecules or polymer hydrocarbons. Pyrolysis technology is the chemical process of breaking down large molecules of waste plastic/tire into smaller molecules of oil, gas and carbon black. Pyrolysis of waste plastic or tire takes place in absence of oxygen, at about 230-280 and the reaction time is about 15-45 minutes.
We have proven technology for pyrolysis of waste plastic and tires. At Huayin Systems, our engineers dedicate constant efforts to improve machinery design and technology for pyrolysis of waste plastic and tire.
