1481353 Destructive distillation of tyres W SCHAFER 6 Feb 1975 [25 Feb 1974] Divided out of 1481352 49031/76 Heading C5E Tyres are thermally decomposed in the absence of oxygen and steam or carbon dioxide is passed through the hot carbon formed to produce water gas or reducer gas. The Figure illustrates an apparatus as claimed in Parent Specification in which tyres 13 are charged through an oil-bath 8 into a steel tube 1 and indirectly heated by a hot gas from a blower 24 which passes through the annular space between the tube and the insulating jacket 2. The heating gas leaves through a flue 4 and the gaseous and other volatile products of the process are removed through conduits 14 and 14a and passed to a condensation, rectification and distillation system 15, 16.; Oxygen-containing gas can be supplied from nozzles 22 to partially burn the carbon product and residual volatiles to produce heat, which heats the carbonizationmelting zone by radiation and conduction, and hot gas which indirectly heats the carbonization tube 1. Steam or carbon dioxide is introduced through nozzles 23 to react with the hot carbon which can be at above 1000 C.
