Abstract Oxidative thermal treatment of oil sludge with different oxygen concentrations of air by using a dynamic thermogravimetric (TG) reaction system is investigated. The experimental conditions employed are: gas flow rate of 50 cm3/min (value at 298 K) for 300 mg dry waste, a constant heating rate of 5.2 K/min, the oxygen concentrations in air of 1.09, 8.62 and 20.95 vol. \% O2, and the temperature (T) range of 378-873 K. From the experimental results, the residual mass fractions (M) are about 78.95, 28.49, 8.77 and 4.13 wt. \% at the oxidative T of 563, 713, 763 and 873 K for the case with 20.95 vol. \% O2, respectively. The values of M with 8.62 and 1.09 vol. \% O2 at T of 873 K are 4.87 and 9.44 wt. \%, respectively. The distillation characteristics of the oil portion of liquid products (condensates of gas at 298 K) from the oxidative thermal treatment of oil sludge with 20.95 vol. \% O2 at T of 378-873 K is close to those of commercial gasoline. Nevertheless, the liquid product contains a large amount of water. The distillation characteristics of the oil portions of liquid products with 8.62 and 1.09 vol. \% O2 at T of 378-873 K are close to those of diesel and fuel oils, respectively. The oil quality with 8.62 vol. \% O2 is better than that with 1.09 vol. \% O2. However, the liquid product with 8.62 vol. \% O2 still contains a large amount of water; nonetheless, that with 1.09 vol. \% O2 is with negligible water. Compared with the oil product of nitrogen pyrolysis, the oil quality with 1.09 vol. \% O2 is better. Certainly, low oxygen conditions (i.e. 1.09 vol. \% O2) not only accelerate the thermal reaction of oil sludge, but also at the same time avoid or reduce the production of water. Further, from the analysis of benzene (B), ethylbenzene (E), toluene (T) and iso-xylene (X) concentrations of the oil portion of liquid products, the BETX concentrations of oil with 20.95 vol. \% O2 are higher than those with 8.62 and 1.09 vol. \% O2. The yields of liquid products with 20.95, 8.62 and 1.09 vol. \% O2 at T of 378-873 K are 31.96, 34.42 and 37.3 wt. \%, respectively. From the experimental results, the improvement effects of oxygen on the qualities of the oil portion of liquid products are obvious. The above technique not only formats good quality gasoline and diesel oils but also reduces large amount of oil sludge. If the oil exists with water, it may be obtained by further separation or collected by fractional condensation.
