Effects of Phase-Equilibrium Temperature and Pressure on the Thickness Decision of a Methane Hydrate Container

Abstract:

Article Preview

The thickness of the process equipment increases in proportion to pressure for the methane hydrate transportation and storage. The pressure is one of the most important factors, because a material must be selected in the way of proper pressure and temperature to design the process equipment. Therefore, we tried to figure out whether the phase equilibrium temperature & pressure can be applied to the designed temperature and pressure or not, and carried out the thickness calculation of the pure methane hydrate container in accordance with “Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code - Division I of Section VIII, ASME”. Also, we studied on the effect of the container’s thickness using the results of the phase equilibrium temperature and pressure measurement including the inhibitor and promoter of the methane hydrate on some related references.
