Enter the water vapor content of gas, the gas flow rate, and the amount of glycol needed to remove one pound of water (gallons) into the Glycol Flow Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Glycol Flow Rate. 

Glycol Flow Rate Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Glycol Flow Rate. 

GFR = (W*M*G) / 24

Variables:

  • GFR is the Glycol Flow Rate (gallons per hour)
  • W is the water vapor content of gas 
  • M is the gas flow rate 
  • G is the amount of glycol needed to remove one pound of water (gallons) 

How to Calculate Glycol Flow Rate?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Glycol Flow Rate.


  1. First, determine the water vapor content of gas.
  2. Next, determine the gas flow rate. 
  3. Next, determine the amount of glycol needed to remove one pound of water (gallons). 
  4. Next, gather the formula from above = GFR = (W*M*G) / 24.
  5. Finally, calculate the Glycol Flow Rate.
  6. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above. 

Example Problem:

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

water vapor content of gas = 30

gas flow rate = 15

amount of glycol needed to remove one pound of water (gallons) = 3

GFR = (W*M*G) / 24 =  ?
