BRIQUETTE MAKING OF CARBON BLACK FROM PYROLYSIS PROCESS OF SCRAP TYRE
Carbon black has higher calorific value, fixed carbon and low sulphur and ash content; it can be potentially used as high quality fuel either in briquettes. The briquette making of fine carbon (powder form) from scrap tyre pyrolysis plant is slightly more difficult than production of briquette from coal or charcoal. The oil content in the carbon powder is one of the factors. Normally oil content in the carbon powder should not be higher than 2-3%, otherwise binder will be required. In case that binder is required, the mixing of fine carbon powder and binder dispersion are the key to the success of briquette production.
The higher fixed carbon, calorific value and low sulphur and ash content of coarse fraction suggests that it can be used as high quality clean fuel briquettes.
