The invention relates to methods and means of determining water content in the stream of hydrocarbon liquid or gaseous fuels, or in the air stream and can be used in the petrochemical and refining industries, as well as in the systems of centralized refueling aircraft.

Known for cleaner fuels, including from water by filter - separators (SU, inventors ' certificates№539587, №971415, №1057068), the elements are made with the filter, coagulating, drainage and water-repellent layers, and as a coagulating material layers are fibrous glass. Known filters, separators, dehydrators, include the case in which there are three coaxial element, filter, coagulating and separating, after filtering partition are riser walls, in which the process of coagulation of droplets (consolidation of small water droplets) occurs in fiberglass packages of different density and different diameters of the optical fibers. Fiberglass packets are sequentially (3-5 layers) to enable a consistent increase of the pore size of the partitions. The process of coagulation occurs due to the transition of water microdrops of medium fuel on the surface the optical fibers and education in the aqueous film, which flows along the current fuel from one package to another with increasing film thickness and total volume of water. When you exit the last batch of water from a water film forms large drops, which the following layers are delayed-separated into individual coated with Teflon mesh (separator) and under the action of gravity deposited in the lower settling zone of the separator.

These devices are designed for the Department of water, but do not provide the possibility of determining the quantity of fuel.

There are other ways to clean fuel (EN, No. 2050928, 1995; WO 2012024013, 23.02.2012).

Known methods of determining water content in fuel by optical means (FR 2902190, 2007; WO 2011027099, 2011). In particular, in the method according to WO 2011027099 used polymer optical fibers that are sensitive to the presence of water and change their optical properties in the presence of water in the liquid fuel. Optical fibers can be made from permeable plastic and may have a separating grating, the refractive index of which varies depending on the nature of the reflection or transmission and is recorded by the detector. The permeability of the material of the optical fibers allows water to penetrate into the fibers and thereby affect its refractive index or geometry and, consequently, to modify the characteristics are reflected in the texts or transmission, which is judged on the amount of water in the fuel.

There is a method of rapid control of water content in oils and fuels by determining the breakdown voltage generated in the test substance with electrodes hemispherical shape and comparing the obtained values with the previously obtained dependence of breakdown voltage on the quantity of water, and pre-dried, multi-layered porous strip of porous paper impregnated with fuel or oil, remove the air, set between electrodes placed on the center of the strip at a distance equal to its thickness and creates tension with constant speed before occurrence of electrical breakdown (patent RU 2006847, 1994).

A known method of controlling the water content of diesel fuel, implemented by a device that contains a sensor, installed at the bottom of the filter, between the housing and the sensor cover is installed the coarse grid, which contains a chemical reagent. In the axial hole of the cover is installed tube of transparent material and in its lower part there are the led and photodiode, installed In the housing, a second tube of transparent material, in the upper part where the led and the photoresistor. Diesel fuel enters the filter, and when the water level reaches the top end of the first tube, water enters the cavity of the sensor, and in contact with the chemical reagent is a chemical reaction with the release of hydrogen. Changes in luminous flux due to the presence of hydrogen is captured by the photodiode, the signal of which is processed and generates a signal of limiting the level of water in the filter (SU 1814694, 1993).

The above-described analogs of the complex and, in addition, require in addition that determines the water content in the fuel, installation of filter-separators to remove water and return to its original state.

The closest analogue to the present invention, the method is an automated method of removing water from the fuel system, which is implemented by means of the separator, the sensor of the presence of water, the first and second drain valves, pressure sensor and control system, which is functionally connected with the first and second drain valves, gauge the presence of water and a pressure sensor. The sensor of the presence of water is located in the separator and is used to detect the presence of water. The first and second drain valves are interconnected by a channel. The pressure sensor is located in said channel to determine the level of pressure in it. The control system automatically on the basis of output signals from the sensor to the availability of water and the pressure sensor controls the first and second drain valves to ensure the destruction of the LM the bones from the separator (US 20090248128, 2009).

The disadvantages of this method is its complexity due to the need of installation of the sensor the presence of water directly in the separator and the absence of the possibility of quantitative determination of water content in the fuel.

The closest analogue of the invention, the device is setup, designed for purification of liquid fuel and gas, which includes two filter-separator and two valves, in order to increase the degree of purification, automation of the process of regeneration saariluoma-filter elements and the continuity of the treatment process, the installation further comprises a control unit and its associated vacuum pump, two pressure sensor installed in front of each filter-separator, and two pressure sensor installed after each of the filter-separator and electrically operated spool-type hydraulic directional valves. (EN 2446858, 2010).

The disadvantages of this device include the restriction of its operational capabilities due to the lack of opportunities for quantitative determination of water content in the fuel.

The problem to be solved by a group of inventions is a combination of the cleanup process fuel from water, monitoring water separator and process for determining the water content in the fuel.

For the way the problem is solved for with the em, that let the fuel flow through the separator, consisting of several consecutive riser cells, each of which represents an independent filter separator and comprises porous partition walls formed separating grid, a coagulator of the frame reinforcing material with a filler of porous polyvinylformal and reference grid, with water, the resulting separation in the separator, is directed to a settling tank, in the fuel flow continuously or periodically measure the pressure before each porous wall and the pressure behind it, convey information about the measured stress values on the analytical block the Registrar, is calculated on the basis of the pressure difference of the hydraulic resistance of the porous partitions, then the received data will determine the amount of water retained by the porous partition, previously obtained calibration data about the change in the hydraulic resistance of the porous wall, depending on the content of water in it. The total amount of water for a certain period of time is defined as the total amount of water in the tanks and the amount of water contained in the porous partition walls. Or the total amount of water in a certain volume of fuel for a certain specified period of time of vechicle the t on the basis of the previously obtained calibration data about the change in the hydraulic resistance of the porous wall, depending on the content in the coagulator water. While sifting mesh, preferably coated with Teflon.

For the device the problem is solved due to the fact that the device that contains the filter-separator that includes polyvinylformal, pressure sensors that are installed before the filter-separator and for him, as well as the analytical unit is the logger associated with the pressure sensors, the proposed device operates as a separator, in which case set a consecutive group of filter-separators, each of which is made in the form of a porous wall formed of interconnected separating mesh and coagulator of the frame reinforcing material with a filler of porous polyvinylformal, casing drain channels for output of water in the sump, the pressure sensors associated with the analytical unit Registrar, installed in front of and behind each porous wall. Separating mesh porous wall covered with Teflon. Each porous partition provided with a support grid, connected to the separating mesh and coagulator.

The technical result from the use of the claimed method and device for its implementation is simplified due to the simultaneous separation of water and determination of water content in the fuel on the value of the hydraulic resistance of the porous partition walls, as well as the operating status of the porous septum, providing easier maintenance of the separator, improving the reliability and accuracy of the method due to the simple and reliable information on the amount of water retained by polyvinylformal. The operability of the porous wall is monitored by monitoring the status of polyvinylformal, which is necessary due to the fact that the porous polyvinylformal maintains high efficiency in a hard, not a water-saturated state.

The technical result is due to the fact that emulsified in an organic liquid water is absorbed by polyvinylformal contained in a porous septum, forming in its pores larger drops, which move along with the flow of the purified liquid. By the time the larger drops of water opposite the wall surface of the partition most of the drops is in its lower part. Porous, polyvinylformal has two stable aggregate state, the first - glassy, rigid, with fixed pore structure, with adsorption moisture absorbing properties, however, when saturated with water, the material loses its adsorption activity swells the fibers increase in volume of up to 2000% and losing rigidity, supple, i.e. the material is PE is ecodit in the second state. The second elastic porous aggregate state of polyvinylformal have very different properties. High hydrophilicity and adsorption allows to accumulate on the surface and in the cavities of the pore structure of the material a significant amount of water. Due to the high hydrophilicity of flexible polyvinylformal has good coagulation properties (escalates small drops of water). In operation, the porous separator, polyvinylformal to saturation with water is vegasonline properties and rigid porous structure. After saturation with water, the material changes from a glassy to a resilient state, swells and becomes odocoileuus properties. The skeleton of the porous partition walls made of non-woven cloth structure limits the limits of elastic deformation of polyvinylformal and is the limiter changes the size of the diameters of the pore channels, which leads, in spite of the elasticity of saturated water polyvinylformal, the narrowing of the pore channels with the swelling, and the hydraulic resistance to the flow of the fuel increases. The pressure in the fuel flow is recorded by pressure sensors located on both sides of the porous wall. Time-varying pressure difference on both sides of the porous wall is calculated by the control unit functionally associated with sensors Yes the population, on the basis of the pressure difference is determined by the hydraulic resistance of the porous wall. Using predefined properties of porous partitions, namely the change in the hydraulic resistance of the walls depending on the amount of water that determine its content in polyvinylformal that then allows great precision to determine the percentage of water in the fuel, as well as the total quantity of fuel for a certain period of time.

In addition, no water emulsion in the fuel flow includes the drying process of porous polyvinylformal the actual fuel flow and held on the wall of the water goes into the fuel in molecular dissolved state (water content in the fuel is lower than 0.001% (by weight)is removed from the septum, which causes the device to its original state.

The invention is illustrated graphic materials, in which:

- figure 1 shows a separator that implements the claimed method;

- figure 2 shows a process diagram.

Method for determination of water content in the liquid or gazoobraznom hydrocarbon fuel or in the air is that miss (pumped) with a constant flow stream of hydrocarbon fuel (liquid or gaseous) or air flow through the separator, the which is formed of several consecutive riser cells, each of which represents an independent filter separator and comprises porous partition walls formed separating mesh and coagulator of the frame reinforcing material with a filler of porous polyvinylformal and reference grid. Water obtained by separation on a porous septum, is directed to a clarifier. Before each porous partition and it installed the pressure sensor, by means of which constantly or periodically measure the pressure before partition and the pressure behind it.

Data on the measured pressure values are transmitted to the analytical unit, the " Registrar", which, in particular. Can be used a personal computer. On the measured pressure values in the analytical unit of the Registrar calculates the pressure difference for each porous wall and is determined by the received differential pressure change in the hydraulic resistance of the porous wall at a time. Calculation of hydraulic resistance of the porous wall is produced on the basis of the previously obtained calibration data about the change in the hydraulic resistance of all porous partitions depending on the content in the source water fuel.

Using the received data, determine the amount of water held by each of the coagulator Paris the second partition, and on the basis of these data to determine the amount of water contained in the hydrocarbon fuel or air.

The total amount of water in a certain volume of fuel for a specified period of time at a constant flow rate of the hydrocarbon fuel (or air) when pumping through the separator can be defined as the total amount of water in the sump (obtained by measurement) and the amount of water contained in the porous partitions (obtained by calculation).

In addition, the total amount of water in a certain volume of hydrocarbon fuel (or air) when pumping through the separator can be calculated by changing the hydraulic resistance of the porous partition on the basis of the above-mentioned previously obtained calibration data about the change in resistance of the porous partitions depending on the content in the coagulator water.

Through the analytical unit of the Registrar may be defined mathematical dependence of the hydraulic resistance of the porous wall at a time, which is recorded in the analytical unit of the Registrar and from these data, calculate the percentage of water in hydrocarbon fuel (or air).

The separator that implements the claimed method, includes a housing 1 in which is installed and fixed a few after avatele posted by filter-separators in the form of a riser cells, consisting of porous partitions, each of which consists of separating grid 2 (separator), coagulator 3, frame made of a reinforcing material with a filler of porous polyvinylformal, and reference grid 4. All of the elements of the porous partition walls separating grid 2 - coagulator 3 - support grid 4 are connected, for example, a wire (not shown), the wire connects the separating grid 2 with the support grid 4 between which is sandwiched coagulator 3 formed frame reinforcing material with a filler of porous polyvinylformal.

Case 1 is a welded stainless steel construction with means of attaching the porous partitions, provide for their replacement, and drain channels 5, the number of which is not less than the number of porous partition walls, for removal of free water in the sump. Before the first porous partition in the lower part of the body is channel-sampler 6.

Separating mesh coated with Teflon or other hydrophobic material. In each pair coagulator-separator is the process of water separation in the fuel and exhaust it through channels in the body of the separator in the settling zone settling.

The separator also includes an analytical unit-recorder 7, and the associated pressure sensors 8, one of datecompleted in the stream before each porous partition 9, and the other behind it, i.e. the number of pressure sensors is equal to twice the number of porous partitions. Analytical block-recorder 7 records, calculates and stores the current value of the water content of the fuel. In addition, the analytical unit of the Registrar 7 the calculations of the average values of the water content of the fuel during the specified time periods at a constant flow rate of fuel flow through the device.

The pressure sensors are installed in pairs at least, one before and at least one after each of the porous walls.

The coagulator is made of permeable in all directions porous reinforced polymer material with otkrytosti deep structure having a total porosity of at least 50% with the size of elementary then, mostly, 10-200 μm. This material is formed from the frame and filler. The skeleton represents the interconnected filaments or fibers, the diameter of which, mostly, is 5-400 μm. The filler of the porous polyvinylformal fills the space between the said threads or fibers. In the porous reinforced material formed from filaments or fibers of the frame, the space between which is filled with a filler, the frame can be made in an orderly and interconnected fibers (for example, in the form of CE is key), and randomly arranged filaments or fibers (nonwoven fabric) or alternating between the ordered and chaotic yarns and/or fibers (polypropylene and/or polyester and/or polyamide) with a diameter of 5 to 100 microns.

For example, the frame may be a material thickness of 1-80 mm, weighing 40-1300 g/m2, consisting of interconnected filaments or fibers in the form of a metallic or polymeric volumetric meshes, or punched polymeric non-woven material or fabric, or knitted fabric. Porous, polyvinylformal can be obtained, for example, by condensing structure and heat treating a homogenized in water composition, including at least polyvinyl alcohol and aldehyde. In the process of obtaining a porous polyvinylformal can be additionally used structure-forming water-soluble additive, which when the process is complete subject complete the removal of the finished product.

For the coagulator is an additional layer in the form of a reference grid of hydrophobic material, performing the role of the power element contributing to the stability and strength of the pair separator-coagulator in the stream.

Cleaned the fuel or the air passes through sequentially arranged porous wall, cleaned and Postup the em receiver tank. While isolated from the purified product water with mechanical impurities through the tanks come out.

Part of the flow of fuel, such as kerosene, or the entire flow is directed into the separator from left to right, as shown in the drawing. The stream passes through one or several contiguous porous walls of the separator, each of which consists of a coagulant and a separator made in the form of a separating grid, coated with a hydrophobic material such as PTFE.

In the process of passage of the flow through the coagulator, polyvinylformal having strongly developed surface becomes wet, adsorbing and coagulase water from the fuel. Small water droplets are trapped by polyvinylformal, while the lighter hydrocarbon liquid passes through it. These small water droplets coagulate, porous partition starts to produce larger droplets of water (coagulation and coalescence), which delayed separating net, drain down and discharged through drains into the sump. Other contaminants also trapped by the porous partition and disposed in the sump with water.

Thus, in each cell, a pair coagulator-separator is the process of separation of water-in-fuel (dehydration), free water under the force of tgest is deposited on the bottom of the housing, whence it is drained from the separator to the sump.

When saturated porous polyvinylformal water (absorption of water), is reducing its hydraulic resistance due to the transition of polyvinylformal from rigid to elastic state.

The following porous partition the second cell pair coagulator-separator, holds less water, because the amount of fuel is reduced due to the work of the first pair coagulator-separator, the third and subsequent pairs coagulator-separator work similarly. When the output from the last couple coagulator separator fuel flow contains almost no water and other contaminants.

Registration and comparison of the difference in the current values of the differential pressure on each of the porous walls forming an array of mathematical relationships, which allow us to calculate the analytical unit of the Registrar the current percentage of water in the source passing fuel at the inlet of the intermediate or the last of the porous partition.

To determine the percentage water content of the pre-made calibration of the sensor system, it establishes the relationship between the water content in the fuel and the corresponding readings of the pair of pressure sensors that are installed on opposite sides of each of the porous walls (raznostilevymi). Calibration is a method of pumping several options prepared water fuel emulsion having a known concentration of water and its total volume of the fuel volume.

The total amount of water for a certain period of time can be determined as the sum of the volumes of water in the tank with correction for the water content in the volume of the porous walls of polyvinylformal. In addition, the total amount of water can be calculated based on the current readings of the differential pressure on each of the porous walls for a certain period of time using information obtained from the calibration device based on the total amount of fuel pumped through the device.

When the limit is reached saturation level of polyvinylformal water analytical block the Registrar receives the appropriate signal, indicating that the porous partition (usually the first) is saturated with water and works in the coagulation mode.

Due to the fact that most of the particles collected in the first two porous walls, if necessary, they can be replaced or to carry out the regeneration of the porous partition walls, by switching the flow of fuel to duplicate the separator. After drainage of polyvinylformal contained in a porous partition, its hydraulic resistance increases. Plumage is of orodja returned in original condition and possible reuse.

As a result, when the implementation of the method is the simultaneous separation of water from fuel is determined by its content in the fuel on the value of the hydraulic resistance of several porous partition walls, and evaluates the condition of the porous walls. Maintenance of the separator is simplified and the accuracy of the method increases due to simple and reliable information on the amount of water in the fuel flow. This method and installation for its implementation is also suitable to determine water content in the air.
