Propane & Methane cooling due to pressure reduction



Although the freezing points of Propane (-42C / -44F) and Methane (-182C / -295F), are very low, when there is small amount of water, it may block or damage the reducing pressure regulator. To avoide freezing, the practice is to pre-heat the gas and maintain gas temp after pressure reduction, above water freezing point. The program calculates pure Metahne or Propane temp drop due to pressure reduction and the amount of heat require to maintain high temp.
