Moisture content in natural gases has an effect on separation process where it will depend on the separator efficiency to do the separation in order to remove moisture from the natural gas. Current methods that already been used for dehydration of natural gas are Joule Thomson Expansion, Solid desiccant dehydration and Liquid desiccant dehydration. Therefore, this project initiated to test on centrifugal force for dehydration of natural gas. The objective of this project is to study the effect of moisture content in natural gas for separation process. A series of experiments will be carried out to study the effect of moisture on the separation process where the amount of moisture will be varied for each experiment. The prototype of the equipment is already been built. Therefore, the efficiency of the equipment will be tested and the results will be recorded. Then, the collected results will be analyzed to see what is the effect of the moisture content towards the efficiency of the equipment. Based on the results collected, the efficiency of the separation are determined which are based on the water collected from the water collection tank and it will be compared with the amount of water being supplied. The results shown as the water loading increases the separation efficiency of separation also increases.
