What pyrolysis is and how its result is influenced

Posted January 8, 2021 by pyrolyze

Pyrolysis is a thermo chemical treatment, which can be applied to any organic product.

It can be done on pure products as well as mixtures. In this treatment, material is exposed to high temperature, and in the absence of oxygen goes through chemical and physical separation into different molecules. The decomposition takes place to the limited thermal stability of chemical bonds of materials, which allows them to be disintegrated by using the heat.

Thermal decomposition leads to the formation of new molecules. This allows receiving products with a different, often more superior character than original residue. Thanks to this feature, pyrolysis waste car tires becomes increasingly important process for today industry – as it allows bringing far greater value to common materials and waste.

Below factors influences pyrolysis process results:

1. Treated material composition – each of the major constituents of biomass and waste feature different temperatures of thermal decomposition, which means they contribute to the results of process in different way. Due to high diversity of material compositions it is always recommended to perform pilot tests to forecast the pyrolysis process performance in most accurate way of transferring plastic to fuel.
2. Temperature of process – has a major influence to the treatment results. Higher temperatures of pyrolysis provide greater quantity of non-condensable gases (syngas, synthetic gas), while lower temperatures favor the production of high quality solid product.
3. Residence time of material in the pyrolysis chamber – influences the degree of thermal conversion of received solid product as well as the residence time of the vapor, which influences the composition of vapors.
4. Particle size and physical structure – influences the speed in which material is subjected to pyrolysis. In general, lower particle size materials are quicker affected by the thermal decomposition, which can result in greater quantities of pyrolysis oil than in case of larger particle size.

Pyrolysis is frequently associated with thermal treatment as per Pyrolyze Treatment System. But in contrary to combustion and gasification processes, which involve entire or partial oxidation of gassifier, pyrolysis bases on heating in the absence of air. This makes it mostly endothermic process that ensures high energy content in the products received.
