Glycol dehydration is the process of removing water vapor from natural gas to minimize hydrates, reduce pipeline corrosion, and ensure integrity of downstream equipment. Bold’s Modular Glycol Dehydration Units are packaged with inlet filtration, absorber, regeneration system with redundant pumps, BTEX, and telemetry all encompassed on a single skid.
How it Works
Saturated gas enters the glycol dehydration unit at the filter separator to remove particulates that could contaminate the glycol system. The saturated gas flows from the filter separator to the inlet scrubber of the glycol absorber tower where it ascends through the tower’s packing or bubble cap trays as glycol descends in a counter current flow to aid in the absorption process. Dry gas exits the top of the tower and passes through the glycol/gas heat exchanger to the gas outlet. The rich glycol is passed through a regeneration cycle, where it is conditioned back to a lean state for recirculation.
