Abstract:
(EN) A system for recovering products from a gas stream comprises a cooled chamber having an inlet that feeds the gas stream to a plurality of sequential conduit loops within the chamber. A critical orifice follows each loop, and each loop includes an output port. Based upon the physical characteristics of each loop, the sizing of the critical orifice following the loop, and the temperature within the chamber, different products are condensed from the gas stream through the output ports. The system may be configured to condense hydrocarbonaceous products such as ethane, propane, butane or methane, as well as fundamental products such as carbon dioxide, nitrogen or hydrogen. Gaseous products may be stored in gas or liquid form or vented to atmosphere depending upon amount, purity, and so forth.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système pour récupérer des produits d'un courant gazeux comprenant une chambre refroidie comportant une admission qui délivre le courant gazeux vers une pluralité de boucles de conduite séquentielles au sein de la chambre. Un orifice critique suit chaque boucle, et chaque boucle comporte un orifice de sortie. A partir des caractéristiques physiques de chaque boucle, le calibre de l'orifice critique suivant la boucle, et la température dans la chambre, différents produits sont condensés à partir du courant gazeux à travers les orifices de sortie. Le système peut être conçu pour condenser des produits hydrocarbonés tels que l'éthane, le propane, le butane ou le méthane, ainsi que des produits fondamentaux tels que le dioxyde de carbone, l'azote ou l'hydrogène. Des produits gazeux peuvent être stockés sous forme de gaz ou de liquide ou libérés vers l'atmosphère en fonction de la quantité, de la pureté, etc.
