Mud Gas Separator is commonly called poorboy degasser. Oilfield drilling Poor boy degasser that removes air or gases (methane, H2S, CO2 and others) from drilling liquids.
The concept of poorboy degasser is density difference between liquid and gas. When the mud coming out from the choke manifold goes into the mud gas separator, mud will hit the baffle plates which are used to increase travelling time and allow gas to move out of the mud. Gas which has lower density than air will move up and mud will goes down due to gravity . Mud leg will provide hydrostatic pressure in order to prevent mud going through the separator into the rig.
Poorboy degasser is strictly used for well control only. There are some events that this equipment is utilized in a well testing operation. Additionally, inspection for the gas buster must be performed frequently the same as other well control equipment. People tends to forgot about this since it is just only a vertical separator tank without high pressure specification like BOP, choke manifold, valves, etc. Erosion is one of the worst enemies to the vessel like this and it can be seen at the points where the drilling mud impinges on the internal wall vessel.
Domestic Poor boy degassers are fabricated to ASME VIII div 1 or PD 5500. The vessels are then hydrostatically tested with a 3rd party classification society witness. Our mud gas separators are supplied with a product certificate and design review.
DC use high quality steel materials manufacturing normal pressure prevent H2S Mud Gas Separator,can effectively prevent the harmful gas erosion, ensure the man- machine safety production. Welcome your higly enquiry.
