Natural Gas Purification
Overview of Natural Gas Purification
Hengye Inc. manufactures various adsorbents for the natural gas industry to remove contaminants and create high value products. Depending on the composition of your feed stream and the demands for your final product, Hengye will assist in your selection for the ideal adsorbent to give heightened results. Our WateRyd products will dehydrate natural gas to fit specifications for: pipeline transportation, compression, liquefaction, cryogenic separation, and more. If the natural gas stream is heavily sour, Hengye’s specialized sulfur removing adsorbents can be used to remove mercaptans and sulfides to allow the product stream to meet environmental requirements and customer specifications. When mercury is present, Hengye offers impregnated adsorbents, which can amalgamate with the mercury and remove it from the stream to meet environmental requirements and prevent the corrosion of downstream equipment.
Products for Natural Gas Purification
WateRyd – molecular sieves, activated aluminas, and specialty silicas
WateRyd products come in a variety of options to meet the vast needs of natural gas dehydration processes including:
• general dehydration and pipeline transportation
• peak shaving
• hydrocarbon dew pointing
SulfuRyd – molecular sieves and activated aluminas
When sulfurous compounds are present, we will help pick the ideal SulfuRyd product to meet the unique requirements of the feed and product streams.
MercuRyd – molecular sieves and activated aluminas
Our specialized MercuRyd adsorbents are manufactured with silver to remove mercury from natural gas.
NitroRyd – molecular sieves and activated carbons
NitroRyd products are capable of removing nitrogen of any content from natural gas streams to create a more pure and higher value natural gas that is easy for transport.
How it Works
Hengye Inc. offers world-class solutions for your Natural Gas processing needs. As new supplies of Natural Gas are recovered around the globe, Hengye is dynamically adapting to the specific requirements for processing clean gas streams. Our expertly skilled team will help create a capital gain by efficiently removing contaminants and creating a high-value product.
Natural gas is one of the world’s leading energy sources and is a cleaner source of energy when compared to burning coal. To help create a product that is valuable to the market, natural gas streams first need to be processed, contaminants removed, and often liquefied for transportation purposes. During the pretreat process, natural gas liquids (NGL), which include propane (C3H8), butanes (C4H10), and heavier hydrocarbons are recovered and further processed to be sold for other uses. After pretreating the natural gas stream, contaminants and byproducts including hydrogen sulfide (H2S), water (H2O), ethane (C2H6), and nitrogen are removed and the gas can then be liquefied and compressed, separated in cryogenic distillation, or transported via pipeline.
