Mud gas separator is a special equipment of gas cut drilling fluid, it belongs to the ordinary pressure, it is the degassing theory of ordinary pressure, but it is the primary degassing equipment of disposed the gas cutting drilling fluid, the main distinguish with vacuum degasser is; it can remove the big bubbles which the diameter is bigger than 3mm. The big bubbles are refers to the swelling gas of the most drilling fluid is full of the well, their diameter are about 3-25mm.  This big bubbles can cause well kick, even erupt the surface of turntable. The gas liquid separator is mainly depend on the effect of gravity collision to realize the liquid and gas separate, the vacuum degasser use the principle of vacuum, flocculated flow and centrifuge, the quality of processing gas of vacuum degasser is less than the liquid gas separator, but it remove the gas more thoroughly. Usually the gas is processed by the liquid gas separator also have small bubbles, after through the shale shaker, it needs enter into the vacuum degasser to conventional gas.

        

The types of liquid gas separator

1 Cover type

The bottom of vacuum degasser is closed, drilling fluid through a U type pipes to return the circulation tank. The depth of drilling fluid in the degassing tank, it can control by the depth of the U type pipes.

2 Open bottom type

The separator have not bottom, the lower parts dive into the drilling fluid, the liquid level in the tank depends on the drive depth of bottom to control, this type of separator is called the “poor children” in foreign, it explains the simplification.

The most simple and reasonable liquid gas separator is the cover types. The open bottom types is take second place, because the depth of drilling fluid is limited to the liquid level depth in circulation tank. The working pressure of liquid gas separator is equal to the frictional drag of when the free gas discharge tubes discharge.
