the field and scope of application: chemical industry ,  the field of waste disposal and comprehensive utilization

ġthe status of the application of technology and industrialization


   China is the largest waste rubber producer in the world. In 2014, the output of used tires was 320 million pieces and the weight was over 10 million tons. Traditionally ,  the main  treatment of China's waste rubber is incineration or preparation of recycled rubber with low resource utilization and serious pollution.China attaches great importance to the green sustainable development of waste tire recycling industry, in recent years it has issued a number of industrial policies to support, guide and standardize the development of tire recycling industry.Particle regenerated rubber prepared by this technology can be used instead of synthetic rubber, and it can replace 0.5 ton of synthetic rubber for every ton of granular regenerated rubber produced.At present,   Jiangsu, Beijing and  Hebei have established respectively 10,000 tons of recycled rubber production lines with the technology,compared with the desulphurization technology such as tandem cooling, single / double helix, single screw, etc., it achieved the closed and continuous process of preparing the whole process from the crumb rubber to the regenerated rubber,completely eliminated the traditional open-type refiner, solved the problem caused by open refiner unorganized gas emissions, the production process was of environmental protection, energy saving, safe, efficient with  obvious emission reduction effect , and great potential for development.


Technical content

      1.technical principle

According to the different technical principles of the desulfurization process and the refining process in the process of preparing the reclaimed rubber from the waste rubber powder, the technology selects the screw extruder with different functions as the desulfurization equipment and the refining equipment respectively.in the desulfurization process, the waste rubber powder with the regenerated agent destroys the crosslinked network of the rubbers selectively under the shearing action of  high-temperature in the desulfurization twin-screw extruder to prepare the desulfurized rubber powder with excellent mechanical properties;in the refining process, the desulfurized rubber powder further interrupts the cross-linking bond under the action of low temperature and high shear in the screw refining extruder to improve the processing performance and obtain the final product.The prepared particle recycled rubber can be used as an alternative to synthetic rubber to reduce the oil consumption of the production of rubber while avoiding the carbon dioxide emissions from incineration of traditional waste tires.
