How temp. affects H2O solubility in alkanes

Carl L. YawsPreetam M. RaneLamar UniversityBeaumont, Tex.The solubility of water in alkanes found in crude oil as a function of temperature has been calculated.In addition, we have developed a new correlation for solubility of water in crude oil that provides reliable values down to very low concentrations (ppm). The correlation is based on boiling-point temperature of the alkane. Correlation values and experimental data are in agreement.The results are usable in engineering applications involving processing, safety, hazard, and environmental considerations.Water solubilityThe importance of the solubility of water in crude oil will increase in view of processing, safety, hazard, and envir...
