Information confirming the possibility of carrying out the invention.

The apparatus comprises: a device 1 for raising or lowering the gas pressure, which in this case is used the compressor (pressure increase); admission 2 and 3 gas flow line; a vortex tube comprising a snail 4, the pipe 5 cold gas stream and at least one pipeline 6 hot gas flow is made in the form of a Laval nozzle; a cooling chamber 7; unit 8 condensation; a throttle element 9; output pipeline 10 condensate; and locking elements 11-17. When this piping cold 5 and 6 hot thread with their inputs connected to the outputs of the cochlea 4, the entrance of which is through the locking element 15 is connected to the output of compressor 1 (in the General case of the device to increase or decrease the pressure of the gas). Line 6 hot stream is located inside the cooling chamber 7, which locking element 11 is closed). The output of the pipeline 6 hot flow connected to the inlet of the condensing unit 8, one end of which is through the shutoff element 17 is connected to the output 10 of the condensate installation. Another output of the condensing unit 8 via the throttle element 9 is connected to one input of a cooling chamber 7, another entrance through which the locking element 13 is connected with the admission of the gas line 2. The block 8 of the condensation is performed in the form of a refrigerator cooled inlet gas, and is located inside the cooling chamber 7. However, the condensing unit can have a different design, for example in the form of a cyclone or separator, which may be located outside the cooling chamber 7.

The operation is as follows.

In working condition, install the locking elements 11 and 12 are closed, and the locking elements 13 to 17 are open. When this oil (or natural) gas from a gas source (not shown) in the suction line 2 through the open shut-off element 13 is supplied to the inlet chamber 7, where it acts as a refrigerant for pipe 6 hot gas stream and block 8-condensing gas. After passing through a cooling chamber 7, the gas through the open shut-off element 14 is fed to the inlet of compressor 1 (device to enhance which is made in the form of a vortex tube is Wound. The last feature is the presence of the vortex zone in the form of a nozzle 6 of Laval, the inner surface of which are chrome-plated to improve the efficiency and reduce the coefficient of adhesion of the liquid fractions to the surface of the vortex zone.

In the cochlea 4 vortex tube separates the gas flow:

- cold gas stream (line 5), containing in percentage terms more light fractions (C1-C2with temperatures 10-15oWith; and this stream is suitable for further transportation through the pipeline to the consumer of gas flow through the pipeline 3;

- hot gas stream (line 6 - the Laval nozzle), containing in percentage terms more heavy fractions (4-C5and impurities most convenient for condensation in the condensing unit 8.

High effect of condensation is achieved by the fact that the vortex area (line 6 - nozzle of Lavale) is located in the cooling chamber 7, so that a high degree drop in the specified vortex zone. The length of the latter is determined by the position of the spider in a Laval nozzle (yoke not shown), and the proportion between cold and hot streams of gas is determined by the throttle, the

The design of the described setup provides access to the adjustments to the quantitative proportions of hot and cold streams.

Hot flow from the vortex zone (line 6) with a high concentration capreolata fractions entered in block 8 of condensation, where there is a sharp cooling of the hot stream, causing a rapid drop of heavy fractions and impurities in the form of condensate. In the future, the entire volume of the condensate collects in the lower part of the condensing unit 8, and then through the open shut-off element 17 through the pipeline 10 is collected in the condensate (not shown).

Unit 8 condensation made in the form of tubular elements through which passes the gas flowing through the suction line 2 from a source of gas having a low temperature. However, block 8 condensation can also be carried out in a cyclone or separator.

In block 8 of the condensation is not all when it comes to gas condenses, part of the hot gas stream remains in the form of a vaporous gas heavy fractions and impurities that do not have time to fall in the condensate. This part of the hot gas stream in the vapor state through a throttle element 9 is injected into the cooling chamber 7, where selectorate input gas increases. Further, the gas from the cooling chamber 7 through the open shut-off element 14 is fed to the inlet of the compressor 1, where compremised and has consequently increased temperature, which increases the efficiency of the vortex tube.

In the described setup using a stationary compressor 1, usually used on SCS, type VK-50/7 or VC-30/7. You can also use other types of compressors, as well as production lines, reducing the gas pressure in gas pipelines.

Of the accompanying schedule of gas transportation through the territory of the Perm region (Fig. 2) shows that, depending on the capacity of the amount of pumped gas in the pipeline falls a certain amount of condensate. Condensation occurs due to natural conditions. A significant amount of deposition of condensate heavy fractions of hydrocarbons and impurities is a liquid phase, which creates certain difficulties in its transport. The proposed setup allows you to select a significant amount of the liquid phase condensate at an early stage of preparation of gas to transport.
