Common problems and preventive measures for plastic to oil machine

Plastic to oil machine can process waste plastic to fuel oil and carbon black, both turning waste into treasure and reducing environmental pollution, which has been recognized by many countries and regions. During the equipment operation, there are many problems should be noticed. Here we summarized the common problems and the corresponding preventive measures for your reference.

1. The oil yield is too low

Under normal circumstances, the oil yielding rate of waste plastic can reach to 95%. However, if the temperature is not strictly controlled as required, the oil gas cannot be completely converted into oil, and the tail gas content is greatly increased at the same time, thereby causing waste of resources. Therefore, the operator must strictly control the temperature according to our operation manual.

2. The pyrolysis time is longer than expected

The normal pyrolysis time is about 8 hours, but if the water content of the plastic is too high, the pyrolysis time will reach 10 hours or more. Because the water needs to be evaporated in the early stage of pyrolysis, so it would be better if you can dry the raw material before feeding, which can effectively save time.

3. The smoke produced is too much

Our plastic to oil machine is equipped with dedusting system that can effectively dispose of 99.9% smoke. If there is a large amount of smoke in the pyrolysis process, you may check the condition of your furnace basement if it has a good sealing effect, the smoke does not completely enter the dust collector if your basement has any leakage. At this time, the basement should be modified according to the layout provided by the manufacturer. In addition, the draft fan should be opened before the pyrolysis, and it cannot be directly turned off after the pyrolysis is completed until the reactor is cooled.

4. The reactor is unstable when running

Under normal circumstances, this situation does not occur. Unless it is over loaded, overloading will lead the reactor to run unevenly. Therefore, the feed should be strictly in accordance with the requirements and cannot be overloaded.
