To prevent and eliminate damage that can be created from the formation of methane hydrates in gas processing equipment and the sales gas transmission pipeline, a dehydration process is required to sufficiently remove the water vapor. There are several methods to accomplish moisture removal including the use of direct cooling, liquid desiccants and dry bed desiccants.

In order to optimize efficiency and to prevent potential bottlenecks in the operation; temperature, pressure and sequencing control are crucial. Spartan provides industry leading measurement and Advanced Process Control solutions to monitor these variables and improve the ability of the unit to successfully dry the natural gas feedstock and increase throughput.
