  • Hydrocarbon in glycol detection

    Refineries and Gas Processing Plants use Glycol to dehydrate oil and gas, reducing the amount of water to less than 0.5%.  Once the glycol has dehydrated the hydrocarbon the glycol is “rich” with water and hydrocarbon.  In order to reuse the glycol, the water and hydrocarbons are removed in a regeneration process.  Normally, a laboratory analysis procedure is used to determine the ...
