Development of a rotary kiln reactor for pyrolytic oil production from waste tire has been successfully fabricated and tested. The reactor has been designed with the diameter and length of 260 mm and 400 mm respectively. The reactor was equipped with the lifter which has a segment length of 28 mm. The pyrolysis experiments were conducted using a semi-batch rotary kiln reactor and carried out at the temperature of 300°C. The materials used in this experiment is waste tire collected from the local recycling company. This study aims to investigate the effect of rotational speed and lifter presence on the product distribution and oil characteristics including viscosity, density, and heating value. From the preliminary result of the experiment, it can be seen that the rotational speed and lifter affect the product distribution and oil characteristics. The experiment without lifter shows that at the rotational speed of 15 rpm produced highest liquid product. However, the liquid product produced in this experiment is still low in all condition. The use of lifter reduced the liquid and solid products while the gaseous product increases. The viscosity, density, and heating value of the oil still acceptable for using it in the engine.
