Oil Sludge Pyrolysis Plant

Where Does Oil Sludge Come from?

The petroleum industry is one of the primary sectors of economic activity, but it is also one of the areas with significant negative environmental impacts. In the petroleum industry, a substantial amount of oil waste, commonly referred to as oil sludge, is generated. Oil sludge is typically produced during various processes, such as oil well construction, petroleum refining, and equipment cleaning. It contains combustible components with a high calorific value, making it highly valuable for recovery.

Why Choose Pyrolysis Technology for Oil Sludge Treatment?

Compared to traditional methods for handling oil sludge, pyrolysis technology offers significant advantages. It boasts high efficiency, low pollution, and resource recovery, addressing the shortcomings of environmental pollution and energy wastage in traditional processes. Pyrolysis technology involves the high-temperature decomposition of organic compounds in oil sludge, converting them into useful energy or chemicals. Moreover, it minimizes waste generation, potentially offering new possibilities for environmental protection and resource utilization.

High-temperature Pyrolysis of Oil Sludge

How Oil Sludge Pyrolysis Plant Convert Oil Sludge into Value?

Through high-temperature pyrolysis technology, valuable fuel oil, sand, and water can be obtained. Here’s a brief overview of this pyrolysis process:

1. Transport of oily sludge

Use an automatic screw feeder to feed oil sludge into the pyrolysis reactor.

2. Heat pyrolysis reactor

Start the combustion chamber to heat the main reactor.

3. Pyrolysis reaction

Under an oxygen-free, high-temperature(200℃-450℃), and sealed environment, the three main components of oil sludge, oil, sludge, and water, will be decomposed. It mainly produces three types of substances, namely crude oil, and non-condensable syngas.

4. Oil and gas condensation separation

The generated oil gas enters the condensation system through a manifold. Heavy particulates in the gas are liquefied into heavy oil and then collected in a sludge tank. Lighter particulates are liquefied into light oil, and collected in the oil storage tank. Non-condensable syngas return to the combustion system after water cooling, providing heat for the reactor.

5. Solid residue discharge

Solid sand residue produced during oil sludge pyrolysis is discharged after cooling and heat exchange.

6. Flue gas treatment

After desulfurization, dust removal, and cooling treatment, the flue gas generated in the combustion chamber meets the emission standards.

Oil Sludge Pyrolysis Process

Final Product of Oil Sludge Pyrolysis

The final products of oil sludge pyrolysis typically include pyrolysis oil, recovered sand, and water. Pyrolysis oil and water each account for about 12.5%, while the remaining 72.5% is sand. This is a general estimate. These proportions can vary based on the specific composition of the oil sludge and the pyrolysis conditions.

Possible Profit Sources from Oil Sludge Pyrolysis

Profit from regenerated pyrolysis oil

After processing the oil sludge, the resulting regenerated oil, when blended, can be sold to fuel distributors or refineries. This product is well-received in the market, leading to significant economic benefits.

Profit from sand

The solid sand waste generated from oil sludge processing can either be used for landfill or sold to brick factories for brick production. Alternatively, it can also be sold to oil field companies as a wellbore stabilizer.

Economic support from petroleum sector’s subsidies

Due to the significant hazards and environmental pollution associated with oil sludge, the petroleum sector provides substantial financial support for the thermal cracking treatment of oil sludge. Once the industrial park obtains the necessary environmental qualifications from government agencies, for each ton of oil sludge processed, the petroleum sector will offer a specific subsidy, which is determined based on the current conditions.

Oil Sludge Pyrolysis Plant Environmental Benefits

Oil sludge pyrolysis plants not only offer potential profit opportunities but also provide significant environmental benefits. It is a more sustainable and eco-friendly option compared to traditional treatment methods. Here are some of the key environmental benefits of using pyrolysis technology in oil sludge treatment:

Reduction of Waste

Pyrolysis technology can significantly reduce the volume of oil sludge by breaking down organic materials into valuable products such as oil, gas, and char. This reduces the amount of waste that needs to be disposed of in landfills or incinerated, ultimately decreasing the environmental impact.

Soil and Water Contamination Prevention

Traditional methods of oil sludge disposal can result in soil and water contamination due to leakage and improper handling. Pyrolysis technology minimizes the risk of contamination by efficiently processing the sludge and recovering valuable components.

Resource Recovery

he plant converts oil sludge, a waste product, into valuable resources, including crude oil and natural gas. This minimizes the need for extracting new fossil fuels, leading to a reduced environmental impact associated with drilling and extraction.

Optional Auxiliary Equipment – Waste Oil Distillation Plant

In order to obtain fuel oil with higher market value, it is recommended to use oil distillation equipment for oil processing. By this, you can get refined oil of higher quality and better price.
