5 facts about molten technology

2 minutes for read

Our technology is unique in the pyrolysis industry as we’re the sole company employing molten salt as a heat transfer agent. To gain further insight into our technology, here are five key pieces of information.

1. Molten technology is an innovation on a global scale.

Pyrolysis is a well-known technology, but Molten Technology offers a novel approach to solving the waste tire problem through the use of pyrolysis. Read about Contec’s pyrolysis process.

2. Molten salts are used as a good heat transfer system.

There are five kinds of heat systems for pyrolysis:

  1. Electricity
  2. Flue gases
  3. Microwaves
  4. Molten Metal
  5. Molten Salt

Each technology has unique features and is best suited for specific situations. Molten salt is an effective solution for pyrolysis because it’s sustainable, doesn’t harm the environment, has no risk of fire or pressure build-up, and has a high heat efficiency.

3. Molten salt usage significantly improves the heat transfer parameters.

Molten salt offers better control, which helps to maintain optimal process parameters. This makes it easier to achieve consistent quality and higher safety compared to conventional solutions. Additionally, the system experiences less thermal stress.

4. There are 3 methods of using molten salts.

The three types of molten salt systems. They’re salt baths, direct heating, and circulating molten salts. In salt baths, molten salts are in an open vessel, and heat transfer occurs through natural convection.

Direct heating uses metal assemblies with molten salts for direct heating. In circulating molten salts, the salts are kept in circulation as a heat medium for process heating or heat exchange.

5. Molten salts are environmentally friendly.

The process has a low environmental impact. According to a Climate Solutions report, the recovered Carbon Black produced by Contec is a sustainable alternative to certain grades of virgin Carbon Black and has a carbon footprint that is less than 80%.
