Vacuum Degasser are used to remove the small entrained gas bubbles left in the mud by the mud/gas separator. These units are positioned downstream from mud/gas separators, shale shakers and mud cleaners, while hydrocyclones and centrifuges follow in the arrangement.

Working principle of vacuum degasser

The degassers are used to clean the gas in the drilling fluid, to ensure the drilling fluid property relatively stable, to guarantee the steady operation of swirlers. The degassers can be grouped into two kinds: ordinary pressure type and vacuum type. The ordinary pressure degasser is to use the centrifugal to take out gas to invade the mud, with the help of centrifugal force to make the mud spraying in the jet tanks and striking on the wall to make gas releasing. The vacuum degasser is to use the suction of the centrifugal, forming negative pressure in the vacuum tanks, under the action of drilling fluid at atmospheric pressure, through the suction pipe into the hollow shaft, then by umbrella piece of around the hollow shaft assembly, they jet to the skin of tank.

Structure of vacuum degasser

ZCQ vertical type vacuum degasser made of explosion proof motor, vacuum pump, coaxial shunting gear reducer. When works, pressuring the start key, motor drive vacuum pump and mud gas separator degassing impeller rotate, gas cut invaded drilling fluid absorbed to mud gas separator and throw to mud gas separator by degassing impeller. Production a fluid lamina which is eddy spiral movement and form the centrifugal force field. Because the centrifugal force is the 32 times of its gravity, make the small bubbles in fluid lamina rapidly buoyancy lift to surface, in the function of negative pressure, the small bubbles rapidly broken, the broken bubbles gas enter into vacuum pump and discharged through the two air holes in reducer.
