Natural Gas Dewpoint / Dryout Heating

Process Heating Solutions

Natural GasOur Natural Gas Dewpoint Heating solution is designed to help combined cycle power generation facilities that use fuel (natural) gas as the energy source for their turbines. A common problem is that natural gas as a fuel can contain moisture and contaminants, so the process needs some kind of conditioning system capable of delivering clean gas to the turbine as fuel.

A fuel gas conditioning system typically contains an electric process heater, pressure regulation, coalescing filters, and other instrumentation. The coalescing filters strip out the contaminants to deliver cleaned gas, while the pressure regulator ensures a constant supply pressures to the turbine. The electric process heater elevates the gas temperature to ensure two things: 1) to prevent the formation of hydrates and moisture from reaching the turbine, and 2) to ensure that the superheated gas reaches the turbine at the correct temperature.
