This project is executed to study the effect of inlet gas velocity to separation efficiency of removing moisture (free water) from natural gas. This experimental work had been executed at test rig specially build for this work and using high centrifugal compact separator. The project needs to prove that certain centrifugal equipment able to remove 99.9% moisture from natural gases. However this claim is made by hypothesis outcome from experimental work using solid particles of< 10 microns and SF6 as the carrier gas. There are no theoretical studies and prove regarding this matter. This project varies the inlet gas velocity of the centrifugal separator at fixed temperature which is 35°C and water loading 20%. The experimental work required specially fabricated compressor that allow set up pressure range from 10 bar to 70 bar. The gas flow with desired pressure and compressor speed (%) enters spraying system that injected fine water droplets (< 10 microns) to the gas line. Wet natural gases flow into the centrifugal compact separators to separate free water from natural gases. Water collection will determine the separation efficiency of the equipment based on the operating conditions. Higher pressure will generate higher inlet velocity of gas and this willproduce higher force into the separator. This force helps creating higher centrifugal force which improves water separation from natural gases.
