Waste Oil Treatment

By processing waste oils as a high-quality resource, existing petrofuels can be substituted.

The Process

The waste oil is filtered and fed into a reactor where it is pyrolytically distilled. The target product of pyrolytic distillation is diesel-like fuels.

The Problem

The flowability of waste oil decreases with storage time.

The Solution

The introduction of the Ultraschall-Akustik-Durchfluss-Aggregat (UADA) upstream of the reactor leads to a better homogenisation of the waste oil and an increase in its flowability. The schematic is as shown below:

The Advantage

The RAPTECH technology breaks down the oil molecules into lighter compounds and thus supports petrochemical distillation.
