Abstract Solid particles suspended in natural gas pipelines cause many fundamental problems in transmission and distribution network of natural gas. Conducted measurements in the natural gas network of Kerman city, Iran showed a high concentration of black powder in the pipeline. It was found that the current filtration system not to be efficient to remove the solids. Thus, with regarding to the size of black powder, to improve the filtration a cyclone separator before the filtration process… CONTINUE READING
