APMGS mud gas separator can be also called poor boy degasser or
liquid gas separator. It is vertical type, with 800~1200 mm
diameter as popular model or selection. It is operated together
with flare ignition device. Between flame ignitor and degasser,
there are 60-100m vent line.
Actually, for oil and gas well drilling, the entrained gas is
harmful and poisonous. It's flammable. If the gas is overloading,
there will be blow out.
Mud gas separator is commonly called a gas-buster or poor boy degasser. It captures and separates large volume of free gas within the
drilling mud. If there is a “KICK” situation, this vessel separates
the mud and the gas by allowing it to flow over baffle plates. The
gas then is forced to flow through a line and vent it to a flare
Mud Gas SeparatorTechnical Parameters
For oil and gas well drilling, we usually set mud gas separator
ahead of shale shakers. The drilling mud out of well bore will flow into degasser via the
chock manifold. After degassed, fluid will flow out of degasser
into shaker by pass or possum belly. Degasser will help get rid of
large quantity invading gas. These is harmful and toxic gas may
lead blow out.
When fluid mixed with gas enters into degasser, the baffle plate will help break gas bubbles inside. The gas will
flow up to vent line. With special design on degasser mud leg, the
gas is not able to flow back again. Degassed drilling fluid can be
processed safely by subsequent equipment
To achieve great performance, we kindly suggest Q345B material to
resist H2S. And the pressure vessel certification will give user more
confidence for some special working condition. At Aipu solids
control, APMGS1200 mud gas separator is rather popular.
