Pyrolysis Systems 
 

The pyrolysis process presents many challenges to engineers. High temperatures, critical environmental atmospheres and varying feedstock and discharge to name but a few. European Gate Valves have been able to provide workable solutions to these areas. 
 
Turnkey Continuous or Batch Pyroylsis Systems 
 
European Gate Valves Limited offer both Batch and Continuous Pyrolysis systems for whole tyres, chipped tyres and plastics. Mixed plastics that contain PVC are a particular challenge and we have solutions to handle the chlorine and other contaniments.  
 
 
Continuous Pyrolysis reactor for both tyre and plastic chips

Pyrolysis Conveyors
Whole or chipped tyre pyrolysis 
Debeading of tyres 
Shredding / screening 
Consistent temperature while cracking 
Condensation to PyroOil 
Steel and Carbon Black removal 
Overband magnet to remove Steel 
Carbon Black enhancement plant 
Fractal distillation of PyroOil into its various fractions (Gas, Diesel, Kerosine, LPG) 
De-sulphurisation plant to take sulphur down to below 0.1% content 
Reuse of LPG within the system or for resale 
Plastic pyrolysis 
Washing, Drying and Shredding 
Any steel removed upfront 
All types of plastic handled including PVC 
Chlorine removal 
Cracking temperature monitored and kept constant 
Dwell time of plastic consistent 
Char removal 
Condensation to PyroOil 
Fractal distillation of PyroOil into its Various fractions 
LPG used within the system or for resale 
At European Gate Valves we realise that not everyone wants continuous pyrolysis reactors so we offer a range of Batch Pyrolysis reactors so customers can start with a Batch system then progress to continuous as budget and demand require, to this end we design all of our systems to be modular with scalable.
