Hydrate Separator

Hydrate Separator

hydrate separator The Hydrate Separator can be used to separate hydrates and liquids from natural gas without using chemicals. Hydrates are melted using heating coils. Cyclonic separation ensures a compact and low weight design with a high separating efficiency. Further benefits include the elimination of chemical logistics, storage, regeneration and environmental emission recovery systems.

Applications

The Hydrate Separator can be used in combination with the innovative Twister Supersonic Gas Conditioning technology to condense and separate water and heavy hydrocarbons from natural gas. Principal applications include any combination of the following:

  • Gas dehydration
  • Hydrocarbon dewpointing
  • Natural Gas Liquids (NGL) extraction

The Hydrate Separator can also be applied to manage hydrates downstream of a pressure let-down valve.

Benefits

Model of Hydrate SearatorA Hydrate Separator in combination with Twister offers a unique combination of benefits for natural gas processing applications. Cyclonic separation ensures a compact and low weight design with a high separating efficiency. Further benefits include the elimination of chemical logistics, storage, regeneration and environmental emission (BTX) recovery systems.

The simplicity and reliability of a static device, with no rotating parts, operating without chemicals, ensures a simple facility with a high availability, suitable for unmanned operation. These benefits result in significant capital and operating cost savings as well as safety and environmental performance improvements, particularly for offshore applications.
