I am currently working on a report (more of technology review) for conventional and new technologies used in natural gas dehydration.


Dehydration using glycol absorption and solid bed adsorption are well known and used commercially for big natural gas plants. I came across a reference talking about calcium chloride CaCl2. Any other new technologies used these days? Any references I can refer to?

You can review the book: Gas Purification, by Kohl A., and Nielsel Richard, 5th ed., 1997.

Calcium Chloride is ancient technology - it is one of the first processes designed for water removal (since 1920's).


As for other technologies, you can consider:

1) Mechanical refrigeration with MeOH injection http://petrowiki.org...ate_suppression

2) Twister technology http://twisterbv.com...onic-separator/

Any other technologies Dejan?


My report currently has the widely used glycol systems and adsorption, as well as the mechanical refrigeration and twister.
