How to Distill Waste Engine Oil: Equipment Introduction and Operation Guide

In the context of industrialization and the widespread use of automobiles, the treatment of waste engine oil has become a global environmental challenge. Traditional methods of waste engine oil disposal oftenresult in significantenvironmental pollution. Therefore, finding an efficient and environmentally friendly treatment method is crucial. Distillation of waste engine oil is a widely applied method. Through distillation technology, impurities and contaminants in waste engine oil can be separated, resulting in clean base oil,which providesthe possibility for reuse.

1. Introduction to Waste Engine Oil

Waste engine oil, also known as used lubricating oil, refers to the waste generated when lubricating oil used in machinery and equipment (such as automobiles, generators, etc.) reaches the end of its service life. Waste engine oil typically contains metal particles from mechanical wear, combustion by-products, water, and other impurities, making it unsuitable for further lubrication. Direct discharge orbasictreatment canlead to significantenvironmental pollution.

2. Introduction to Waste Engine Oil Distillation Equipment

Waste engine oil distillation equipment is a specialized device used to efficiently convert waste engine oil into reusable base oil. The equipment typically includes the following main components:

Waste Engine Oil Distillation Equipment

2.1 Heating System

The heating system is responsible for heating the waste engine oil to the distillation temperature. Electric heaters or fuel heaters are commonly used to ensure that the waste engine oil reaches the appropriate temperature during distillation, facilitating the decomposition and evaporation of impurities.

2.2 Fractionation Tower

The fractionation tower is the core component of waste engine oil distillation equipment. It separates thevariouscomponents of waste engine oil under high vacuum conditions. Fractionation towers aretypicallydesigned with multiple stages toefficiently separatewaste engine oil into base oil productswith varyingviscosities.


2.3 Cooling System

The cooling system isutilizedtolower the temperature ofthe base oil distilled from the fractionation tower to therequired level, thereby convertingit into a liquid state. The cooling system typically includes a condenser and a cooling water circulation system to ensure that the base oil smoothly enters subsequent storage tanks and processing stages.

2.4 Filtration System

The filtration system is used to remove residual impurities from the base oil,enhancingthe purity and quality of the product. Common filtration methods include mechanical filtration and chemical adsorption filtration, which effectively remove residual solid particles and other impurities.

Operation Guide for Waste Engine Oil Distillation

3.1 Preparation

Before distilling waste engine oil, the equipment should undergo inspection and preparation. Ensure that the heating system, fractionation tower, cooling system, and filtration system are in normal working condition, and perform necessary cleaning and maintenance.

3.2 Heating of Waste Engine Oil

Add waste engine oil to the heating system and heat it to the distillation temperature using a heater. The distillation temperature typically depends on the nature and composition of the waste engine oil, generally ranging from 200°C to 400°C.

3.3 Fractionation Process

The heated waste engine oil enters the fractionation tower, where it undergoes fractionation under high vacuum conditions. During the fractionation process, componentswith varyingviscosities are separated,resulting inbase oil products of different grades.

3.4 Cooling and Filtration

The fractionated base oil is cooled to the appropriate temperature using the cooling system before entering the filtration system for further processing. By removing residual impurities, the purity and quality of the base oil areenhancedto meet specified standards.
