Mud gas separator is also known as Poor boy degasser, ZYQ series Mud Gas Separator is a special equipment to handle the invaded gas of the drilling fluid. Density and viscosity of the drilling fluid will greatly be influenced by the invaded gas. Oilfield drilling Poor boy degasser that removes air or gases (methane, H2S, CO2 and others) from drilling liquids.
ZYQ Mud Gas Separator (Poor Boy Degasser) is engineered specifically for onshore drilling operations. The working principle of the poor boy degasser is simple. The drilling mud with gas mixture in the bore hole is transferred by mud return lines to the inlet of the mud gas separator, allowing it to impinge on a series of baffles which separates gas from drilling mud. The free gas flows into the flare line to be burned and the mud discharges to the shale shaker and to the mud tank.
There are three types of Mud/Gas Separators, they are closed bottom, open bottom, and float type. The principle of mud/gas separation within each type of vessel is identical, as above.
DC Solids Control designs and manufactures ZYQ all kinds of mud gas Separators. Mud gas Separators is an extremely reliable, vital piece of safety equipment for today’s drilling operations. It is ideal for use where drilling is likely to encounter large volumes of gas, sour gas or when an operator is drilling with an underbalanced mud column.
