Title (EN) NATURAL GAS LIQUID FRACTIONATION PLANT WASTE HEAT CONVERSION TO POTABLE WATER USING MODIFIED MULTI-EFFECT DISTILLATION SYSTEM
(FR) CONVERSION DE CHALEUR PERDUE D'UNE INSTALLATION DE FRACTIONNEMENT DE LIQUIDE DE GAZ NATUREL EN EAU POTABLE À L'AIDE D'UN SYSTÈME DE DISTILLATION À EFFET MULTIPLE MODIFIÉ
Abstract:
(EN) Certain aspects of a natural gas liquid fractionation plant waste heat conversion to potable water using modified multi-effect distillation system can be implemented as a system that includes a waste heat recovery heat exchanger network thermally coupled to multiple heat sources of a Natural Gas Liquid (NGL) fractionation plant. The heat exchanger network is configured to recover at least a portion of heat generated at the multiple heat sources. The system includes a sub-system thermally coupled to the waste heat recovery heat exchanger network to receive at least a portion of heat recovered by the heat exchanger network. The sub-system is configured to perform one or more operations using at least the portion of heat recovered by the heat exchanger network.
(FR) Selon l'invention, certains aspects d'une conversion de chaleur perdue d'une installation de fractionnement de liquide de gaz naturel en eau potable à l'aide d'un système de distillation à effet multiple modifié peuvent être mis en œuvre sous la forme d'un système qui comprend un réseau d'échangeurs de chaleur à récupération de chaleur perdue couplé thermiquement à de multiples sources de chaleur d'une installation de fractionnement de liquide de gaz naturel (NGL). Le réseau d'échangeurs de chaleur est conçu pour récupérer au moins une partie de la chaleur générée au niveau des multiples sources de chaleur. Le système comprend un sous-système couplé thermiquement au réseau d'échangeurs de chaleur à récupération de chaleur perdue pour recevoir au moins une partie de la chaleur récupérée par le réseau d'échangeurs de chaleur. Le sous-système est conçu pour effectuer une ou plusieurs opérations à l'aide d'au moins la partie de la chaleur récupérée par le réseau d'échangeurs de chaleur.
