Drying of pipelines is essential for the reliable pipeline operation as it prevents internal corrosion, formation of hydrates in gas pipelines and also freezing of water in above ground piping and gas pressure regulators.
Our efficient air drying and vacuum drying equipment removes water from pipelines quickly and efficiently. We can provide solutions optimizing time and cost of each project using both methods.
CEPS provides turn-key commissioning services including engineering studies and/or specification development, pipeline cleaning and gauging, chemical treatment of test water, pipeline flooding, hydrostatic pressure testing, tightness tests, pipeline dewatering and pipeline air drying and vacuum drying.
Our air drying units can dry air to dew point of water of −80 °C that helps to achieve specified values on pipeline output quickly.
Evaporation of water intensifies and boiling point of water drops with decreasing atmospheric pressure. High ambient temperature also helps to increase efficiency of vacuum drying.
