Wet gas enters the bottom of the absorber tower and ascends through a mist extractor where fine liquid particles are removed. As the gas rises through the tower’s packing or bubble cap trays, water is absorbed by descending lean glycol (water removed through regeneration process), which is continually pumped to the top of the tower. Drier gas exits the top of the tower and passes through the glycol/gas heat exchanger to the gas outlet. The rich glycol (wet with absorbed glycol) collects in the hat tray at the bottom of the tower and flows to the power side of the glycol pump. From the pump, the rich glycol flows through a reflux coil, heat exchanger and flash gas separator, which remove gas and entrained hydrocarbons from the glycol.

The waste gas then flows to the fuel gas scrubber and the lean glycol flows through a filter into the reboiler. As the reboiler drives off water vapor through the still column, the hot, reconcentrated glycol flows from the reboiler through the sparger box to remove additional water vapor. The lean glycol flows to the storage compartment and then to the heat exchanger for cooling. The cooled, lean glycol then flows through a glycol sock filter before passing to the glycol pump. Lean glycol and gas from the absorber together power the glycol pump, which pumps the glycol through a glycol/gas heat exchanger to minimize glycol loss and then to the absorber tower to continue the dehydration process cycle.
