Natural gas dehydration units play a crucial role in the oil and gas industry by removing moisture from the gas, which can cause corrosion, reduce efficiency, and even lead to equipment failure.
This page provides a brief, accessible introduction to natural gas dehydration units for readers unfamiliar with their purpose and significance.
We will also highlight some natural gas dehydration units available at Air & Vacuum Process Inc.
What are Natural Gas Dehydration Units?
Natural gas dehydration units, also known as natural gas dryers, are used to remove moisture from natural gas to prevent corrosion, reduce efficiency, and avoid equipment failure. The units typically use one of two methods: absorption or adsorption.
How do Natural Gas Dehydration Units Work?
Natural gas dehydration units work by passing the gas through a desiccant, which removes the moisture from the gas.
In solid desiccant dryers, the gas is passed through a bed of desiccant, which absorbs the moisture. The desiccant is then regenerated by heating or by passing dry gas through it.
Liquid desiccant dryers work by sending the gas through a column of the material, which then draws the moisture out of the air. The liquid is then regenerated by heating or by passing dry gas through it.
Types of Natural Gas Dehydration Units
There are several types of natural gas dehydration units available, including:
