Instrument Gas Dryers: Solutions for Removing Water Vapor from Natural Gas
Instrument gas is used to operate surface equipment and pneumatic controls near the wellhead and other locations along the transmission system, usually where a source of instrument air and electric power are not available. Instrument gas dryers are used to remove water vapor from natural gas (instrument gas) to prevent liquid water and/or ice from forming in the gas lines.
These Instrument Gas dryers (Dehydrators) are very effective in the Natural Gas Fields and recently in the Shale Gas fields. They have been very effective on separator pads controlling valves and on compressor station instrumentation. These remote applications are ideal for Instrument Gas dryers.
