    Vapor-liquid equilibrium (VLE) data for aqueous systems in the presence of electrolytes have many industrial applications. VLE data for water + monoethylene glycol (MEG) mixtures in the presence of sodium chloride at low pressures are important to describe the effects of composition, temperature, and pressure on a MEG (gas hydrate inhibitor) regeneration unit. A modified version of the Othmer ebulliometer was applied to measure reliable VLE data for water + MEG + NaCl at 101.325, 65, and 35 kPa. Binary systems (water + MEG and MEG + NaCl) were also experimentally studied. Vapor pressures for water and MEG were determined and compared with the selected literature data via Antoine correlation. The electrolyte nonrandom two-liquid and universal quasi-chemical activity coefficient models were successfully parameterized to describe the VLE behavior for water + MEG + NaCl systems. Thermodynamic consistence of the data sets was also checked. Interaction parameter estimation followed a systematic strategy: (1) water-MEG, (2) water-NaCl, and finally (3) MEG-NaCl with the experimental data of MEG + NaCl and ternary data. MEG + NaCl solutions presented an inverted colligative property, that is, the addition of salt decreases the boiling point. VLE data indicated that water separation is less efficient due to the addition of salt. The parameterized models allow an evaluation of the MEG regeneration process as a function of temperature, pressure, and composition.
