Located in Morgantown, West Virginia, Infinity Natural Resources is a privately held exploration and production company operating within the Appalachian Basin. A wellhead that was being used to feed a Trans-Canadian pipeline was in need of a Natural Gas Dryer . The existing gas dryer on the site was no in operating use so a new gas dryer was needed before winter freeze-ups occurred. With the help of our distributor Al Xander Co, they were able to size them for a custom PLD Series Dryer.
Van Air Systems PLD Pipeline Deliquescent dryers are designed to be an economical and effective solution for gas dehydration. These natural dryers help stop freeze-ups and hydrate formation. They require no power, and having no moving parts. Operation of the PLD is simple. Wet gas enters the dryer where the desiccant separates the moisture droplets. Drops of water are separated and fall into the large claim area. The gas then moves upward through a bed of deliquescent desiccant tablets, which slowly dissolve as they absorb moisture vapor. The water and desiccant solution fall into the claim area to be drained – and the brine solution will not freeze above -20ºF. At the outlet of the dryer, the gas is free of liquid water. Moisture vapor is substantially reduced and hydrate formation is eliminated.
The Al Xander Company supplied Infinity Natural Resources with a custom Van Air Systems PLD-36-1000. This natural gas deliquescent desiccant dryer will now help service a well that feeds the Trans-Canada Pipeline . This pipeline heads east and supplies the eastern seabord (Philadelphia) with clean gas, and is now protected from Freeze-ups with the PLD Pipeline Natural Gas Dryer.
