TEG Dehydration

For gas streams with excess water vapor, Kinder Morgan Treating recommends the use of TEG (glycol) dehydration units for effective water removal.

Water vapor must be removed from natural gas to prevent pipeline corrosion and mechanical damage to downstream equipment. The most common method for this procedure involves use of triethylene Glycol (TEG) in a continuous process in which the water vapor is absorbed from the gas under conditions of high pressure and moderate temperature. Regenerator conditions of low pressure and high temperature cause the water to be released from the TEG and the cooled TEG is returned to the TEG absorber for removal of additional water vapor.

KMT/SouthTex typically provides a TEG regenerator unit with gas train in conjunction with amine treatment facilities, but is pleased to offer glycol dehydrators as a standalone product.

Kinder Morgan Treating operates equipment yards in Victoria, Odessa, and Tyler, Texas. For more information on Kinder Morgan Treating, please send us an inquiry form or contact us.
