DIY Plastic to Oil
Hi!It could be possible that the feedstock is too little and the kind of plastic may not be right. You should ideally use polyethylene or polypropylene. Also if the condenser doesn't cool the fume sufficiently, you will not get the oil.

You're most welcome! I hope this device is available in your area soon
What a great idea! Thank you. As a person living in Texas constantly under threat of yellow fever, west nile virus, dengue fever, all sorts of encephalitis, and now zika WE in the non-developed world appreciate your work . When west nile first hit, the blue jays were hit very hard so it's not always people who may be vaccinated, the fauna are also effected . Thanks again !
Is there any explosion or burning issues ?
sir i do this process at home but i only get solid product not any type of liquid so what can i do to get plastic oil (thanks)
And how about the vacuum? I've read that you need to have a vacuum environment inside the "reactor" to succeed when boiling the plastic which for me is a pyrolysis process. Are you just heating the reactor despite there is air inside?
How did you make it to work only when in contact with water?
Hey there, just one simple question, are you recirculating the water after the cooling process? or you're just sending the water through it using gravity? Thanks for the response
amazing project,will try it soon...
hi! how to know if the process is over?
The forests, swallows geological formations and plants design becomes tiny ponds during dew or rain and this is the most moquito breending places, like bromeliae species per example.
