Mud Gas Separator, also named poor boy degasser. It is common but necessary equipment for oil and gas drilling field. It is similar like a fire extinguisher to the oil and gas drilling field. Normally, it may do not need to be used. But once it is necessary, there should be risking condition need to be controlled reliably and properly to avoid disaster.
Definition of atmospheric Mud Gas Separator (poor boy degasser) for oil and gas drilling
Atmospheric Mud Gas Separator (poor boy degasser) is a kind of mud gas separator with directly gas outlet pipe (vine line) on top of the separator and discharge gas directly to the environment, without matched with flare igniter. GNZYQ1000A Mud Gas Separator equipped 3m to 10m vent line to discharge gas to the environment. In the condition of vent line pipe over 5m in length, it should be 3 places stretch lines to fasten it.
Function of Mud Gas Separator (poor boy degasser)
Gas cut fluid influx into mud gas separator, when go through the find fine hole, gas will be smashed and go out from the vent line from top, fluids will fall into the mud gas separator tank. Pipe line of atmospheric Mud Gas Separator (poor boy degasser) Vent line: 8” OD vertical outlet height 3 ~ 10m, with flange connection to the separator body for easy transport. Fluids outlet U-tube: OD 8” and fluids sealing height 10 ft. Fluids Inlet pipe: OD 4”, API standard
Other types of Mud Gas Separator (poor boy degasser)
Atmospheric Mud Gas Separator (poor boy degasser) discharge gas directly to environment, while another type is flare mud gas separator. Flare mud gas separator connected with a flare ignite. The vent line is with min. 50m in length and lead the gas to remote area away from drilling rig hazardous area and fire it.
