Oil Sludge Pyrolysis Plant

In today’s world, oil sludge pyrolysis plant provides a solution for the management of industrial waste. As a kind of industrial waste, oil sludge pollutes soil and water resources if not handled properly. Therefore, it is very important to find a green solution. In recent years, the oil sludge treatment system has gradually become the key to solving sludge pollution. The machine converts oil sludge into pyrolysis oil through pyrolysis technology. In this way, not only pollution is reduced, but also more economic value can be created.

Factors Contributing to Oil Sludge Formation

Oil sludge from oil field

Oil Field

Oil sludge can accumulate in various parts of an oil field, such as storage tanks and pipelines. It is a byproduct of oil production and refining processes and is typically composed of oil, sand, clay, water, and other impurities.

Oil sludge from the oil tank

Oil Tank

Oil sludge can accumulate in oil tanks as a result of various factors, including the presence of water, sediment, and degraded oil. Over time, these materials can settle at the bottom of the tank, forming a thick, viscous sludge layer.

Oil sludge from the oil-contaminated soil

Oil-Contaminated Soil

Oil-contaminated soil refers to soil that has been polluted or contaminated by oil or petroleum products. When oil spills or leaks occur, the oil can seep into the soil, resulting in the formation of oil sludge.

Oily Sludge Treatment Process

The main technology we used to dispose of oily sludge is pyrolysis. Let’s see the specific process of working:

Oily Sludge Pyrolysis Process
Oily Sludge Pyrolysis Process

1. Collect all of the oil sludge together and then unload them at the workshop. Most of our oily sludge pyrolysis plants are installed in the open air. And then use our auto screw feeder to feed them into the pyrolysis furnace.

2. Under an oxygen-free, high-temperature, and sealed environment, the three main components of oil sludge, oil, sludge, and water, will be decomposed.

3. When the temperature rises to a certain degree, oil gas will come out. Thereinto, heavy particles in the gas will be liquefied into heavy oil and then dropped into the heavy oil tank; light particles in the gas will rise up and be liquefied into light oil in the horizontal tube condenser and then also be reserved in the oil tank.

4. The slag will be automatically collected during the process.

The flue gas, before safe emission, may contain carbon and cause global warming, so they need to be cooled down first and then go through de-dusting, washing, water spray, ceramic ring adsorption, and activated carbon adsorption to remove the harmful matters in it. Finally, it will be discharged safely.

Note: we strongly recommend you choose the continuous pyrolysis equipment because the oil sludge needs a pre-treatment before pyrolysis.

Beston promises that all the flue gas discharging has met the EU environmental protection and emission standards. Since there will be combustible gas and flue gas generated during the workflow of our oily sludge treatment system, we have specific ways to deal with them. In the hydra seal, the combustible gas will be desulfurated and cleaned and then reused as fuel to heat the pyrolysis reactor.

Introduction to the Components of Oil Sludge Pyrolysis Plant for Sale


Screw Feeder

Its function is to transport raw materials for the reactor. The selection of a screw feeder requires pretreatment of the sludge. This feeding method can improve reaction efficiency and save working hours and manpower.



The reaction kettle rotates under the work of the driving device. At first, the oil sludge absorbs heat in the reactor. Then, it reaches pyrolysis temperature. Ultimately, the sludge is pyrolyzed to produce oil and gas.



First of all, the manifold buffers the oil gas from the pyrolysis reactor, so that the oil gas can enter the oil gas condenser evenly. Secondly, it plays the role of gas-liquid separation, separating gas and heavy oil.


Vertical Condensor

The high-temperature oil gas is condensed into liquid through the oil passage condenser. This part is directly related to the oil yield of the cracking equipment. Under the action of gravity, the liquid oil formed by cooling flows to the oil tank for storage.


Water Seal

Under the action of the pressure generated by the reactor, the combustible gas that cannot be cooled enters the water seal. The function of the water seal is to prevent tempering. At the same time, it can also purify combustible gas.

Oil Gas Condensation Module of Oil Sludge Pyrolysis Plant

Oil Gas Condensation Module

It is a device with an integrated design of the oil gas condenser, oil storage tank, and water seal. It occupies less land and has more oil storage capacity. Not only that, the module is equipped with double water seals, which makes the anti-temper performance more reliable.

Flue Gas Condenser of Oil Sludge Pyrolysis Machine

Flue Gas Condenser

The water pump provides circulating cooling water to the flue condenser. After the high-temperature gas passes through the equipment, it undergoes heat exchange with the cooling water. This reduces the temperature of the hot air and provides protection for the bearings of the induced draft fan.


Dedusting Tower

The dedusting tower processes the flue gas through the spray system. In addition, the water tank provides the water source for the dust removal system. The chimney ensures a smooth discharge of gas into the air.

Discharger of Oil Sludge Pyrolysis Machine


At the end of the reaction, the temperature drops. At this time, the screw discharger discharges carbon black. Meanwhile, the water-cooled discharger can realize cooling of carbon black in a high-temperature environment.
