P-5 Molecular Sieve Dehydration Process

P-5 Molecular Sieve Dehydration Process


MOLECULAR SIEVE DEHYDRATION PROCESS (64 pages with 30 photographs, drawings, graphs and examples) This training manual describes the process principles and operations of solid bed water adsorption plants. It is particularly suitable for operators of gas dehydrating plants used in cryogenic plants. Both Metric and English units of measurement are used so students can work in units with which they are familiar.

Covered Subjects:

  • Description of equipment in an adsorption plant
  • Process flow for integral plants and those using an outside source of regeneration gas
  • Series and parallel adsorber tower flow
  • Single and dual adsorber tower regeneration systems
  • Tower switching sequence for multi-tower plants
  • Adsorbent capacity, plant efficiency and methods of increasing capacity
  • Adsorbent regeneration process
  • Effects of changing regeneration gas flow and temperature
  • Operating procedures for adding new adsorbent to towers, removing air, start-up, manual tower switching, shutdown and routine operation
  • Procedures for troubleshooting loss of capacity and efficiency

Questions and problems are included throughout the text with answers in the back that allow students to check their understanding of the subject.

Estimated self-study time: 12 hours
