Low Temperature Methane Gas Water Content

For normal gas conditioning processes, the water vapor content of natural gases in equilibrium with water is commonly estimated from McKetta and Wehe based charts like Figure 6.1 of Campbell book or Figure 20.4 of Gas Processors and Suppliers Association. This facilities TOTM presents a chart for estimating methane gas water content at low temperatures, e.g. cryogenic processes.
