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.
