Model accurately predicts HC solubility in methanol

09/03/2007
A newly developed model accurately predicts solubility of hydrocarbon components in methanol.Quantifying the absorption of hydrocarbons, primarily methane and ethane, in methanol is critical in minimizing hydrocarbon losses or optimizing hydrocarbon recovery, depending on the objective of the process.This article presents model results for an accurate prediction of solubility of light alkanes in methanol, in which the obtained results of the proposed method have been compared with experimental data showing good agreement between reported experimental data with the model results.The average absolute deviation is 1.5289%.HC solubilityIn gas processing, methanol is commonly injected into gas...
