Poorboy degasser also called mud gas separator that is an ideal for use where drilling is likely to encounter large volumes of gas. The technology is especially beneficial in sour gas environments or when drilling with an under balanced mud column.

To be as an professional producer of drilling fluid circulation equipment, DC Solid control has many different models of mud gas separator for sale, such as ZCQ800,ZCQ1000, and ZCQ1200. Different types with different treating capacity that according to your actual use to proposal.

Mud gas separator

Eachmud gas separator has limitation on much it can safely handle volume of gas. If the volume of gas exceeds the maximum limit, gas can blow through into the rig. It is very important that you must estimate gas flow rate on surface based on pit gain and kill rate in order to see how much expected gas on surface. This will be the limitation on how much you can circulate for well killing operation. You can estimate the volume gas on surface by using well control kill sheet provided by several companies. You need to ensure that the vent line should be as straight as possible with a larger ID in order to minimize back pressure while venting the gas out.


Anything that you don’t understand, please contact us to learn more about how to calculate the gas volume of your drill rig. And welcome to your valued inquiry of mud gas separators.

Mud gas separators are commonly used during oil drilling operations, particularly in situations when extraction is likely to yield a large volume of gas. Mud gas separator 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.

The mud gas separator skid may include one or more fluid conduits for use with a drilling rig, including an integrated vent line, a high pressure line, a low pressure line, a standpipe manifold, a rig water supply line, a diesel line, an air line, and a rig water return line. The integrated mud gas separator skid may be mechanically coupled to a drilling rig. The integrated mud gas separator skid may need only one crane lift to be mechanically coupled to the drilling rig.

Performance Features of Mud gas separators:
Maximises free gas/ mud separation
Unique U-shaped
Ensures a positive fluid seal
Maintains safe mud levels
Superior baffle arrangement
Allows expansion and diffuses downstream pressure
