waste oil to diesel

What is crude oil distillation?

The crude oil obtained by mining is a dark viscous liquid, which contains a large amount of impurities such as sand and salt water in addition to sulfides. Since crude oil is a hydrocarbon, it cannot be used directly as a fuel or as a base compound for the production of other useful substances. However, the crude oil can be distilled at high temperature to separate the impurities in the crude oil, thereby obtaining clean and transparent non-standard diesel oil.

The specific process of crude oil distillation is as follows:

distillation working process
Crude oil distillation working process

1. Pour the crude oil into the reactor and heat it at high temperature to distill out the impurities in the crude oil and light oil and gas.
2. Light oil, oil and gas under the effect of high and low pressure, into the condensing system, liquefied into light oil falls into the tank.
3. The desulfurization of the light oil obtained is finally diesel oil.
4. Remove the asphalt separated by distillation.

Take 10T's equipment as an example,through this process, we can get 80-85% of diesel and 15-20% of bitumen. We will use the following input and output to conduct a profit analysis.
Operating costs.

Waste oil: 10 tons X288 USD/ton = 2868USD
Heating the fuel can use any of the following:
1) Coal: 0.4 tons X 64 dollars/ton = 25 dollars
2) Fuel: 0.6 tons x 478 dollars/ton = 287 dollars
3) Diesel: 0.5 tons X 765USD/ton = 382 dollars
4) Natural gas: 200m23 X 0.36USD / m3 = 72USD
Power consumption: 25KW / h X O.16USD X 20h = 80h
Water consumption: water reuse, almost no consumption
Workers: 1-2 people X 16USD = 32 dollars
Fuel: 8 tons X 765 dollars/ton = 6118 dollars
Asphalt: 1.5 tons X 175USD/ton = 263 dollars
Profit/day (calculated on fuel diesel) $3017.

Moreover, DoingGroup's crude oil distillation equipment has two alternative systems:

Rapid heating system:
The rapid heating system of the refining equipment uses a circulating heating medium, which on the one hand can save fuel and on the other hand it can speed up the distillation speed.

Diesel purification system:
The diesel oil refined by the standard refining system is brownish yellow. If you want to get better color diesel, we can also provide a deep purification system, and you can always get a pale yellow diesel product.

The main advantages of DoingGroup's crude oil distillation equipment:

1. Double heating system, short heating time, rapid heating, improve equipment operation efficiency.
2. Vertical design, automatic slagging, saving manpower.
3. Semi-continuous equipment, moderate investment, and the operation is simple compared to intermittent equipment.
4. Cooling type is circulating water cooling, with almost no consumption.
5. Customers can customize small model trial production equipment according to their own needs and budget.

The principle of crude oil distillation is simple, but it is possible to use this principle to obtain the maximum oil yield, and there are not many technologies that will not cause environmental pollution. DoingGroup's crude oil distillation equipment has the above advantages. Any equipment problems, please feel free to contact us! !
