Mud gas separator is also called Poorboy degasser or liquid gas separator which is a common safety device in oil and gas drilling mud circulation system. The purpose of a separator is to separate free gas or mixed gas and oil from the drilling fluid and convey the gas or oil to a flare or holding tank.

Mud-gas Separator handles a high proportion of mud solids and may experience hydrate plugging as a result of gas expansion through choke. Design of our Mud Gas Separator is based on conventional process practice, involving a liquid seal system matched to an adequate gas vent.

Specification of mud gas separator
Temperature range : -40°C TO 75°C
Pressure rating : UP TO 15 BAR
Venting size : UP TO 12″
Outlet size : UP TO 10″
Dimension: Based on rig requirements.
Capacity inlet pipe (MIN/IN) : UP TO 125/5

DC Solid control supply both vertical or horizontal Mud gas separator and fitted with internal baffles and distribution nozzles but performance of the liquid seal is independent of these design features.

A MUD GAS SEPARATOR (MGS), or gas buster, is common on most drilling rigs throughout the world. The mud gas separator is used to separate wellbore gas from the drilling fluid while circulating out a kick or circulating any gas present in drilling fluids during drilling or workover operations.

The mud-gas separator also includes a gas vent associated with the main vessel and configured to vent gas from well returns introduced into the main vessel. It also includes a first mud outlet formed within the bottom portion of the main vessel and configured to pass mud from well returns introduced into the main vessel and includes a second mud outlet formed within the side portion of the main vessel and configured to pass mud from well returns introduced into the main vessel.

Design Features
1.Large effective vessel capacity
2.Removal of dangerous H2S and other poisonous gas
3.Baffle plates in vessel
4.Customized specification
5.Backpressure manifold with flare ignition line
6.Effective U-tube or mud seal configuration
7.Skid-mounted design with lay down legs
8.Optional elevating type

Nowadays, more and more drilling company treat safety seriously. Both government and private firm are required to set liquid gas separator and flare ignition device.

DC Machinery developed the horizontal drill mud gas separator but also supplies any custom units according to customer specifications and preferences. We also provide complete system gas handling analysis to establish the capacity of the separators in conjunction with the vent line and mud seal.

There are three types of mud gas separator used in the oil well drilling. Closed bottom, open bottom and float type. however the closed bottom is most popular one. It is closed at vessel bottom with mud return line directed back to the mud tank. Mud leg is maintained in the separator by installation of an inverted U-shaped bend in mud return line.

There are three major types of mud gas separators that Tech-Fab fabricates:

Open bottom: These separators are often called “poor boys,” and immerse the bottom of the machine in the mud deposit.
Closed bottom: A closed bottom mud gas separator features a sealed base, which directs the mud return into the storage tank.
Float: The float design is similar to the closed bottom type of separator, except that it has a valve rather than a permanently sealed line for the mud return. Fixed or elevated pedestals are also used to mount the base.

Mud gas separators are commonly used during oil drilling operations, particularly in situations when extraction is likely to yield a large volume of gas. It is located at downstream of the choke manifold is one of the important well control equipment that you need to focus.

Mud gas separators produced by DC have the advantages of safety and reliability,good treatment effect,long service life ,etc. Constant pressure Anti-H2S drilling fluid mud gas separator manufactured by DC adopts high quality material , can effectively prevent the erosion of harmful gas and ensure production safety of man and machine.

The models of Mud gas separators we have are DCZYQ800 DCZYQ1000 and DCZYQ1200. Besides, there are three major types of mud gas separators :

1. Open bottom: These separators are often called “poor boys,” and immerse the bottom of the machine in the mud deposit.
2. Closed bottom: A closed bottom mud gas separator features a sealed base, which directs the mud return into the storage tank.
3. Float: The float design is similar to the closed bottom type of separator, except that it has a valve rather than a permanently sealed line for the mud return. Fixed or elevated pedestals are also used to mount the base.
