We manufacture pyrolysis plants FORTAN developed by our company TT GROUP for waste recycling. FORTAN pyrolysis plants are multi-purpose (for different wastes), stable in operation at any weather and ecologically safe.

FORTAN capacity 5,2 m3/24hrs (up to 4 tons)

FORTAN pyrolysis plants are multipurpose and intended for recycling of any carbon-containing wastes such as: MSW, rubber wastes, waste plastics, used tires, wood waste, soil contaminated by oil sludge, oil sludge, medical wastes, E-wastes, etc. For 19 years FORTAN plants successfully work in 24+ countries all over the world.

Brief description of FORTAN plant

FORTAN plant is supplied with two retorts, made of heat-resistant stainless steel. The pyrolysis module is lined with high-temperature thermal insulation based on ceramic fiber and refractory concrete. During operation, the temperature of the module outer wall is safe for maintenance staff. The retort lid is manufactured with a lock with special design, which can provide a complete sealing of the space inside the retort and eliminate the possibility of smoke. FORTAN plants are provided with the necessary devices for control of process and control panel for adjusting the operation of the plant. Explosion-proof valve and gas emergency relief system ensure the safety of employees and equipment in case of a malfunction of the plant.

FORTAN plants are designed for mobile use: they have standard dimensions for transportation by any means of transport, a stand for transportation, flange connections in the whole structure, so the installation-dismantling process takes minimum time.

The raw material (waste) is loaded into a container made of heat-resistant material - retort. Retort is placed in the pyrolysis module. Raw material is heated by heat transfer through the retort walls and thermally decomposes (this process is called pyrolysis) forming a mixture of steam, gas and carbon residue. The pyrolysis module is lined with high-temperature thermal insulation based on ceramic fiber and refractory concrete, so that during operation the temperature of the outer wall of the module is safe for operators.

The operating temperature is 450-600 °C. Vapor and gas mixture exits the retort, goes to heat-exchanger, cooled and condensed. Liquid (pyrolysis oil) goes to storage tank. Gas (none-condensable) goes to gas-burner and partially or wholly is used to support pyrolysis process, or used to heat greenhouses, offices and so on. At the end of the pyrolysis process the retort with carbon residue is unloaded from the oven and the other retort with raw material is placed into it.

Pyrolysis products

Liquid fuel (pyrolysis oil) It is used as fuel. It can be distilled for obtaining oil fractions, such as petrol, diesel fractions and fuel oil.
Black carbon It is used as solid fuel, for briquettes, as sorbent in disposal facilities, for manufacturing of rubber products (tires, hoses, cable, etc.)
Gas It is used to maintain the pyrolysis process inside the plant and for heating.
Heat Thermal energy is accumulated in exhaust-heat boilers for water heating and central heating.

Material of pyrolysis / wastes Output of products (by mass)
Used tires Pyrolysis oil – 35-45%; Gas – 10-12%; Steel cord – 8-10%; Carbon black – 40%
Used engine oil Pyrolysis oil – 85-90%; Gas – 5-7%; Semicoke – 5-7%
Polymers (plastics) Pyrolysis oil – 60-80%; Gas – 10%; Carbon – 5-30%
Heavy fuel oil (sludge) Pyrolysis oil – 75-90%; Gas – 5-10%; Semicoke – 5-15%

*output of products depends on the composition of wastes

Advantages of pyrolysis plants FORTAN and PIROL

1. The retort is made of stainless heat-resistant steel.

2. Furnace is multi-fuel: it is possible to use any kind of solid fuel and gas and to set a burner for any type of liquid fuel.

3. Lining is made from the fire-resistant fiber protected with a layer of the strong fire-resistant concrete reinforced with stainless steel, has high resistance against mechanical and chemical influences, provides temperature of an external surface of the plant not higher than 60C that is safe for operators to maintain the plant during the whole process.

4. Simplicity of a design. The increased reliability. A possibility of modification of a design to local conditions.

5. Means of explosion protection. Explosion-proof valve and gas emergency relief system ensure the safety of operators and equipment in case of a malfunction of the plant.

6. Easily repaired equipment.

7. The plant is easy-to-work and service, it is not required vocational education for operators, our company makes trainings for operators.

8. Mobility of the plant. Plants are designed for mobile use: have standard dimensions for transportation by any type of transport, flange connections in the whole structure so the installation-dismantling process takes minimum time, fixed concrete lining so dismantling of it is not required.

9. Low electricity consumption (10-14 kW*hour per each ton) and low fuel consumption (30-40 kg of fuel oil per one process).

10. Best price for same characteristics of equipment of other manufacturers.
