A computer program has been developed that enables process engineers and designers to estimate the total drying time required for removing water from pipelines.
The program (PIPE.DRY) determines the total amount of water to be removed from a pipeline and the total time required to dry the pipeline. It also estimates the volume of the desiccant and the size of the bed required for the operation.
Design procedures involve calculations for volume and mass of water in the pip...
