Oilfield drilling Mud gas separator is also named as poor boy degasser. It is used to remove air or gases (methane, H2S, CO2 and others) from drilling mud. It is mainly used to remove the big bubbles with the diameter of about ≥Φ3 mm. Most of these bubbles are the expanded gas filled in the drilling mud in annular of wellbore. It would cause well kick if the gas not to be removed timely.
Besides mud gas separator, there is another degasser equipment in drilling mud solids control system: vaccuum degasser. It is used after shale shaker and before hydrau cyclone separators. It is used to remove the fine bubbles inside the drilling mud.
ZYQ-1000 and ZYQ-1200 Mud gas separator are the 2 popular models for drilling mud system. Mud gas separator is located before drilling mud system. It is used after BOP choke manifolds and before solids control shale shaker.
The model ZYQ-1000 means that, the tank inside diameter of the mud gas separator is 1000mm. The tank wall of the mud gas separator is 10mm. While plus the 10mm tank inner depth, the external diameter of the tank is 1020mm.
If for model GNZYQ-1200, it means the inside tank diameter is 1200mm, the outside tank diameter after adding the 10mm tank wall is 1220mm.
The Inlet line, outlet line, vent line and solids discharge pipe size can be customized per order request. The mud gas separator design pressure is 1.6 Mpa. It is with side connection It is Atmospheric during working. There is a pressure gauge equipped on the mud gas separator. 0 ~ 140 Psi (0 ~ 1 Mpa) Pressure gauge is matching for the pressure.
Some clients may ask for 0 ~ 500 Psi gauge, which equals to 0~3.5Mpa. The measurement range is too large for mud gas separator. It will affect the accuracy of the pressure values.
There is a release value on the outlet pipe of the mud gas separator. It is butterfly value, the size of the valve can be customized per order request.
There is also a 4 inch butterfly valve on the solid discharge pipe. The valve size can be customized per order request.
The capability of lowering the Mud gas separator to a horizonal position for transporting between locations with necessary supports.
