The construction of the gas facility was delayed due to the delay in receiving the Low Temperature Separation ('LTS') unit and the Triethylene Glycol ('TEG') unit (the 'Units') from the EPC's contractor in Canada.
Triethylene glycol dehydration units are widely used in the oil and gas industry owing to its low CAPEX vis-a-vis solid bed systems and low operating costs compared to conventional desiccants.
The zone's products include ethylene glycol, urea, butane, propane, p-Xylene, monoethylene glycol, triethylene glycol, low-density and high-density polyethylene, natural-gas condensate, petroleum heavy ends and cement.
In a typical synthesis (Table 1 for the whole set of samples), 0.665 g of anhydrous iron (III) chloride and 0.001 g of gadolinium (III) chloride were dissolved in 10 ml of triethylene glycol. A solution of 0.096 g of sodium hydroxide in 7.4 ml of triethylene glycol was prepared apart.
The coproducts such as diethylene glycol and triethylene glycol are obtained in the manufacturing process of MEG from ethylene oxide.
Triethylene glycol is used to absorb any water from the gas.
These salt intrusions reduce online time and cause fouling of dehydrations systems due to TEG's (triethylene glycol) low tolerance for dissolved chloride salts.
Lawton (2004) who prepared zein films containing various plasticizers such as triethylene glycol (TEG), glycerol (Gly), levulinic acid (LA), dibutyl tartrate (DBT), oleic acid (OA), and polyethylene glycol investigated the relationship between plasticizer type and water absorption in the zein films.
(6) In contrast, dimer acid is a fatty acid derived from linoleic acid, which may be used as a copolymer diluent instead of TEGDMA (triethylene glycol dimethacrylate) in a methacrylate resin-based composite to promote "polymerization-induced-phase-separation" (PIPS).
In one Finnish study of dental personnel, dentists and other dental personnel were most commonly exposed to 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate, triethylene glycol dimethacrylate, and 3,3-bis[4-(2hydroxy-3-methacryoxypropoxy)phenyl] propane (Contact Dermatitis 2007; 57:324-30).
