DISPOSAL OF ICE PLUGS FROM PRESSURE REGULATORS FOR NATURAL GASES, BY USING OF NON-CONVENTIONAL ENERGY
Abstract: During the transport performed by artery pipes, the natural gases are delivered, processed, by the
measuring-adjusting stations for consumers. In the cold season the pressure regulators, make conversion of
pressure from a higher domain, of this parameter, to a smaller one to its distribution to consumers. Because
of the humidity of natural gases and also of other hydrocarbons components from natural gases composition
at temperatures below 0OC appear ice plugs which lock the proper functioning of pressure regulators and,
therefore even stopping of supplying of natural gases. To control this phenomena, so common winter, the
present paper propose presentation of an equipment with non-conventional energy to maintain, to these
regulators, of over the congealing limit of the moisture and cryohydrates from the natural gases composition.
Key words: pressure regulator, humidity, cryohydrates, non-conventional energy.
