DESICCANT DEHYDRATORS

DESICCANT DEHYDRATORS

ALPHA TECHNOLOGY performs the design and fabrication of Solid Desiccant dehydrators as per Customer’s requirements, needs and specifications and we make sure that the solution we propose will be economically and environmentally beneficial for the customer.
FEATURES

Produced gas is generally dehydrated using dewatering agents such as triethylene glycol (TEG) and other similar products. Solid desiccant dehydration is an alternative technology for gas dehydration by using moisture-absorbing salts to remove water from the gas, such as CaCl2.

Process Description

Wet gas enters the bottom of CaCl2 dehydrator, below the desiccant bed. it flows up throught the solid CaCl2 bed and gets in contact with the surface of the desiccant pellets which removes water vapor from the gas.

Desiccants

Other Desiccants can be used such as potassium and lithium chlorides. These salts naturally attract and absorb moisture and gradually dissolving to form a brine solution.

Cost Effective

Several process and economical analysis have shown that dehydration using the desiccant dehydrators is cost effective than using glycol dehydration especially in low gas flow rates (less than 1~2 MMSCFD).
Benefits of using desiccant dehydration process doesn’t deal only with CAPEX but also with OPEX as it doesn’t require fuel gas for regeneration and maintenance, and operation costs are very low.

Environmental Benefits

Unlike the glycol dehydration, use of desiccant dehydration has more advantage regarding the conservation of the environment as there is no continuous emission of vent gas to the atmosphere like in glycol regeneration.
