Environmental concerns are on the rise with scientists, environmental advocates and some quotas in the political world calling for better environmental protection steps to be taken. To this end, there are calls to improve the efficiency of how humans use the resources they have at their disposal. One of the most favored methods of reducing pollution is recycling resources to produce new resources that can be used as substitutes for new resources extracted from the environment. This will reduce the load on the environment to provide man with resources for his development and survival.
Waste tyre pyrolysis plants play a very crucial role in recycling already existing resources. They use worn out tyres to produce resources such as pyrolysis oil which is usually used as a furnace oil substitute, carbon black, steel wire scrap which can be recycled and used in the steel industry and pyrolysis gas. The pyrolysis oil from tire can be also further refined to diesel oil or gasoline, which can be applied in more areas.
Recycling of waste tyres reduces the pressure on the environment to recycle human waste, as well as reduce the need to purchase furnace oil which increases the need for oil extraction. However, the environment should not be the sole beneficiary of oil extraction. The entrepreneurs who own and run such plants should also gain financially from recycling tyres.
One of the main determiners of whether recycling businesses are profitable is the cost of the plant. There are very many types of machines that give the entrepreneurs choices and variety. Herein, we look at the various factors that influence the waste tyre recycling plant price to help you determine which type of machine best suited for you.
The Level Of Automation
With regards to the level of automation, there are two different types of waste tyre pyrolysis machines:
1. The continuous pyrolysis plant? This type of plant performs both the feeding and discharge of output automatically. It can also perform its function for a while without the need for some down time to cool the plant. It does, however, need the plant to have a cutting machine to reduce the size of the tyres being fed.
2. The intermittent pyrolysis plant? This type plant operates every aspect of the feeding and collecting the output sludge manually. It also does necessitate some down time for cooling.
In comparison, the continuous pyrolysis plant does have complex systems making it considerably more expensive than the intermittent plant. It does offer more operational efficiency and more run time, processing more tyres.
The Tonnage Output
The tonnage processing capability of the waste tyre pyrolysis is another factor that influences the price. The higher the capacity of the plant to recycle waste tyres the higher the cost. Typically, a 5t plant can cost anything from 25,000 to 90,000 depending on other factors.
Closely related to this is the amount of pyrolysis oil the plant can extract from the waste tyres. The higher the value of extraction (usually ranging between 30% to 50%), the more costly the waste tyre pyrolysis plant will be.
