Core Component Design – Small Pyrolysis Reactor

The reactor is the core component of a small scale pyrolysis unit. The whole reactor system consists of several key parts: a driving device, base, reactor, and casing. Below is a detailed overview of each component:

Drive Device of Small Pyrolysis Reactor

Drive Device
  • Components: A driving motor, a reducer, and a spring base.
  • Function: Provides the necessary mechanical power to rotate the reactor, facilitating uniform heat distribution and efficient pyrolysis process.


Base of Small Plastic Pyrolysis Machine

  • Materials: Typically constructed from high-strength materials to withstand high temperatures and heavy loads.
  • Function: Engineered as a place where fuel burns and provides supporting and fixing the main furnace.

Small Pyrolysis Reactor

  • Material: Made from Q345R steel, known for its excellent high-temperature strength and resistance to corrosion.
  • Function: A core component where the pyrolysis process takes place and oil and gas is produced.


Casing of Small Pyrolysis Reactor

  • Material: High-quality insulating materials to minimize heat loss and ensure energy efficiency.
  • Function: Keep warm, and reduce the heat loss and fuel consumption in the heating process.

Key Advantages of Using a Small Plastic Pyrolysis Machine

Advanced technology

  • Innovative catalytic pyrolysis technology is adopted to recycle waste plastics. This solves the problem of wax oil clogging pipes. This reduces the sulfur content and density of pyrolysis oil and improves its flavor and color. This also reduces the number and cost of downtime for maintenance and cleaning of the machine.
  • An auxiliary distillation scheme can be attached to the small pyrolysis machine. It can further improve the quality of plastic pyrolysis oil.

Mature machine design & manufacturing

  • The small plastic to oil machine for sale is designed with multiple safety assurance (alarm for over temperature and pressure, auto pressure releasing system,  fire fighting device, etc.) and advanced dedusting system (dust chemical removing tank, ceramic ring filtering system, and alkali sprayers). This makes the plastic pyrolysis oil process safe and pollution-free.
  • The machine manufacturing process follows strict standard quality control procedures. It has passed ISO9001, ISO14001, and CE certificates.

Suitable for multiple materials recycling

The machine can process not only waste plastics but oil sludge, scrap tires and rubber. Raw materials can be tested to consider whether it is suitable for pyrolysis as long as having material samples.

Affordable cost

Small pyrolysis plant is generally more affordable compared to larger industrial-scale plants. This makes it more accessible to small businesses, or individuals interested in on-site waste management or small-scale production of pyrolysis oil.

End Products and Their Value from Small Plastic Pyrolysis

The machine can effectively turn plastic into fuel oil and other byproducts. These are useful resources and sold well in the market, which will surely bring benefits for customers.

Pyrolysis oil

  • Can be sold directly, and widely used as fuel in ceramic factories, cement factories, steel factories, etc.
  • Can be distilled to get heavy oil directly and then used in a heavy oil generator set for power generation.
  • Can be refined to be non-standard diesel.

Solid residues

  • Can be pressed into briquettes and used as fuel.
  • Can be used to produce rubber pads, rubber belts, soles, etc.
  • Can be further reprocessed to be of higher quality, and used as a fortifier and filler of the plastic and rubber industry or as a color master batch.

Combustible gas

  • Be recycled to the furnace for heating the reactor.

How Small Plastic Pyrolysis Machine Produces Valuable Products

  1. The feeder or manual work feeds plastic wastes into the pyrolysis reactor.
  2. The oil gas will be generated as the interior temperature of the pyrolysis reactor gets to 280-350℃ temperature after heating.
  3. The oil gas enters into the manifold, heavy particles of the oil gas will be liquefied into heavy oil and dropped into the heavy oil tank; the light oil gas will be liquefied into fuel oil by the condenser and reserved in the fuel oil tank. The remaining non-condensable gas will be desulfurated and cleansed in the hydro seal and then recycled in the burning room as the heating source.
  4. The smoke generated in the pyrolysis process will be cooled down in the flue condenser at first. After that, it will go to the de-dust system for water washing, spraying, and cleaning. Finally, it will be discharged safely, meeting the required emission standards.
