What happens if plant is stopped midway?
In case the plant operation stops for any reason the molten Waste Plastic or Used Tyre particles inside the reactor solidifies. No sooner the plant is restarted with proper utilities (Mainly Electricity) the Reactor is again heated to melt the Waste Plastic or Used Tyre setting the whole plant under restart. Pyrocrat Systems LLP recommends installing a full load Standby Diesel Generator.

Pyrocrat Systems LLP uses an easy to acquire Catalyst. It is an environment friendly chemical to increase the rate of reaction with a usage of 0.1% to 0.5% of the raw material weight feed to the plant.
What is the distillation process? And what is the use in Pyrolysis Plant?
Distillation is a method of separating mixtures based on differences in volatilities of components in a boiling liquid mixture. Distillation is a unit operation, or a physical separation process, and not a chemical reaction. Pyrolysis Oil (PO) is the mixture of Diesel + Kerosene + Petrol like fractions approximately: 30 to 35% of each. Diesel, petrol and Kerosene like fraction cane be separated by using fractional distillation.
