The pyrolysis process
The pyrolysis process involves thermally decomposing feeds in an oxygen-free environment. During pyrolysis, molecules break down, forming new molecules. The new molecules become pyrolytic oil. Pyrolytic oil results from heating waste plastic and tires at high temperatures. Alfa Laval Spiral and Compabloc heat exchangers heat and cool the oil. Our mechanical centrifugal separators and decanters filter solids and water from the oil. The recovered oil is then used to make more plastics, tires and biofuels.
Spiral heat exchangers
Superior heat transfer for heavily-fouling, viscous liquid-to-liquid and two-phase fluids.
Compabloc heat exchangers
Compact, energy-saving heat recovery, condensing and reboiling, for fuel and chemical production.
Reliable, high-speed separation removes fine-solids and maximizes product recovery.
Zero liquid discharge (ZLD)
Robust, compact solutions ensure absolute minimal liquid discharge for an array of applications.
