Drilling mud gas separator for solids control

Drilling mud gas separator for solids control

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 fluid. 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. A “KICK” situation happens when the annular hydrostatic pressure in a drilling well temporarily (and usually relatively suddenly) falls below that of the formation, or pore, pressure in a permeable section downhole, and before control of the situation is lost.

It is always safe to design the mud/gas separator that will handle the maximum possible gas flow that can occur.


FLQ series Mud gas separator

FLQ series Mud gas separator (Poor Boy Degasser) is professional equipment to treat the gas invade mud. When the drilling mud result gas invades, the proportion of its weight and viscosity has a greater deviation not to meet the requirements of drilling. The serious situation is that would cause Chung well, and even blowout accident occurred, if not to treat it timely.

FLQ series Mud gas Separator combined with the Electric Ignition Device can be used to ensure the drilling process smooth. It is devided into the normal pressure Mud gas separator and pressure auto-control Mud gas separator, according to the pressure. Mud gas Separator is your best choice to prevent drilling mud invasion.

Mud gas separator for drilling fluids control

Mud gas separators in other countries also called Poor boy degasser, Liquid-gas separators, Mud/Gas Separators, etc. OGEM Solids Control designs and manufactures FLQ 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 under balanced mud column. This Mud gas Separators is primarily used to separate and safely vent large pockets of free gas, which may include toxic gases such as hydrogen sulfide, etc. from the drilling fluids processing system.
