Abstract

Conceptually new method of hydrate production is proposed. It is based on self-organization of the refrigerant boiling-condensation process in enclosed water volume. The key feature of the method is a high hydrate production rate combined with a comparatively low power consumption allowing us to expect the high effectiveness of the technologies based on it. The set of experiments was carried out. The gas hydrate of refrigerant R134a was produced. The criteria of intensification of the hydrate formation process are formulated. (C) 2016 Elsevier Ltd.
