Title (EN) METHOD AND ABSORBER FOR REMOVAL OF WATER FROM NATURAL GAS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET ABSORBANT POUR L'ÉLIMINATION DE L'EAU DU GAZ NATUREL
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention relates to a continuous process for removal of water from a fluid stream, such as natural gas comprising mainly hydrocarbons, by means of a absorbent medium. Subsequently, the water is desorbed from the absorbent medium to allow the absorbent medium to be recirculated and the water is removed for storage or drying and processing. This process can be carried out continuously, as the absorption medium is re-used.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un procédé en continu d'élimination de l'eau à partir d'un courant de fluide, par exemple d'un gaz naturel comprenant principalement des hydrocarbures, par le biais d'un milieu absorbant. Ensuite, l'eau est désorbée du milieu absorbant pour permettre à ce dernier d'être remis en circulation, puis l'eau est écartée pour stockage ou séchage et transformation. Ce procédé peut être mis en œuvre en continu dans la mesure où le milieu d'absorption est réutilisé.
