Characterization of Bio-Oil and Upgradation to Transformer Oil

Behera, Saroj Kumar (2015) Characterization of Bio-Oil and Upgradation to Transformer Oil. BTech thesis.



By distillation of crude oil the transformer oil is manufacture. The demand and price increase of crude oil day by day. So we need a renewable source for its generation. Thermal pyrolysis is one of the methodologies which is a renewable technology where waste tire were pyrolysed to obtain fuel oil. It reduces pollution as well as it also cover the daily demand of the energy. In this paper, with in the temperature range of 4500C to 8000C, pyrolysis of the waste tire samples were carried out in a semi batch reactor made up of stainless steel. 48.3%was obtained as the optimum output. Physical properties of the oil obtained were determined through using standard test methods and the chemical compositions were analyzed by using GC-MS, FT-IR analyzer. The properties of transformer oil (Properties like PH, viscosity, water content, flash point, pour point) were studied. Then upgradation is made in some properties of tire oil to conclude or prepare the transformer oil.
