Abstract: front page image
(EN)A filter dehydrator for sensing and separating water from hydrocarbon fluid is disclosed. The filter dehydrator utilizes water insoluble cross-linked superabsorbent of a range of particle sizes to provide faster water absorption and swelling. This results in a filter dehydrator with better absorption of water that contains soluble substances typically present in field use.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un déshydrateur-filtre prévu pour capter et séparer l'eau contenue dans des fluides hydrocarbures. Le déshydrateur-filtre utilise un superabsorbant réticulé insoluble dans l'eau dont la granulométrie assure une absorption de l'eau et un gonflement plus rapides. Ceci produit un déshydrateur-filtre qui absorbe mieux l'eau contenant des substances solubles spécifiques présentes dans les applications pétrolières.
