What is a "JT Plant?"
JT Plants, or "Joule-Thomson" plants operate as a gas processing plant in that the JT Plant operates through a natural gas pressure differential causing the temperature to fall significantly, thereby making the natural gas liquids (propane, butane, and natural gasoline) within the natural gas stream, to "condense" and fall out of the natural gas stream.
JT plants condense the heavier natural gas liquids from the natural gas stream to meet that specific natural gas pipeline's "pipeline quality gas" specifications thereby making the natural gas saleable to downstream end-users/customers. The natural gas liquids that are produced from the JT plant are stored in tanks for eventual sale as propane, butane and natural gasoline.
What is the Joule Thomson effect?
The Joule Thomson effect or "JT" effect, refers to the temperature of a gas that falls when it expands without doing any work (e.g. gas at constant pressure through a small orifice).
