triethylene glycol (TEG) dehydration units offer an effective, reliable solution for removing water vapor, BTEX (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylene) and other VOCs from the natural gas stream to produce high quality gas that meets the specifications set by pipeline operators, producers, shippers, refineries, and chemical plant owner operators—while averting the need for additional midstream processing.
Our Glycol-based Dehydration Unit mixes lean, water-free glycol with wet natural gas in the top of an absorber (glycol contactor),to dry the gas by physical absorption. This drying process occurs on the surface of structured packing, towards the bottom of the column. The dry natural gas then leaves the top of the contactor column ready for use. The wet glycol, often referred to as “rich glycol”, is drawn off from the bottom.
