1. Natural Gas Dehydration Hygroscopic nature of TEG is put to use in dehydration of natural gas. TEG is contacted counter currently with natural gas in a packed or bubble tray to remove moisture from natural gas. TEG is subsequently regenerated for reuse by stripping it of its water content.
2. Plasticizer TEG can be effectively used as a plasticizer for Vinyl’s, nitro cellulose, safety glasses. Diesters of TEG gives good low temperature properties and smooth film finishes.
3. Conditioning Agent The affinity of TEG for water is used advantageously in the manufacture of adhesives or pastes to eliminate shrinkage, curling and brittleness.
