Glycol dehydration is a liquid desiccant system for the removal of water from natural gas and natural gas liquids (NGL). It is the most common and economical means of water removal from these streams.
The purpose of a glycol dehydration unit is to remove water from natural gas and natural gas liquids. This water can cause several problems for downstream processes and equipment.
- Typical Sizes: 12” to 48” Diameter
- Pressure: 1440psi
- 8-10 Trays
- Split tower option for removal of trays available.
- Sweet and sour design.
- Reboiler BTU typically 125,000 to 375,000 BTU
- CSA B149.3 Burner Management system included on all reboilers.
- Custom designs available.
Dehydrators are a type of process equipment used in the oil and gas industry to remove water from the production process. Dehydrators are designed to reduce the moisture content of the fluid or gas stream, which is critical to the safe and efficient operation of the production process.
Dehydrators typically consist of a combination of mechanical and/or chemical processes to remove the water from the fluid or gas stream. They may be custom designed to meet the specific requirements of the oil and gas production process, and are made from materials that can withstand the harsh conditions of the oil and gas industry, including high temperatures and corrosive gases.
Dehydrators play a critical role in the oilfield process equipment industry, as they help to optimize production and ensure that the correct amount of water is removed from the fluid or gas stream. They also help to minimize downtime and increase efficiency by reducing the risk of equipment failure or process interruption.
Overall, dehydrators are a crucial component of the oilfield process equipment industry, and play an important role in ensuring the safe and efficient operation of the production process
