End-of-Life tires (EOLT) are waste that does not practically decompose in nature and because of this their sound treatment is needed for environment protection. One of the possible methods for such a treatment is pyrolysis process. Globally, around 23% of all EOLT are processed through pyrolysis, whereas in the Republic of Bulgaria only 5% are processed by pyrolysis. This shows that for Bulgaria this method pyrolysis still has a good potential for development and further research. In our previous paper , an adequate mathematical model of non-stationary heat transfer during pyrolysis used for the treatment of end-of-life tires has been developed. A numerical algorithm has been also developed in MATLAB to solve the respective mathematical initial and boundary value problems. In this study on the base of the previously developed model we examine the temperature regimes in the pyrolysis station with three cameras and their strong dependence upon the characteristics of the initial heating. Results for the temperature fields, temperature isolines and gradients for different kind of initial heating of the process are presented and commented.
