ZYQ series Mud gas separator(Poor Boy Degasser) is professional equipment to treat the gas invade mud. When the drilling mud result gas invade, the proportion of its weight and viscosity have a greater deviation not to meet the requirements of drilling.

To be as a professional manufacturer of solid control manufacture, DC Solid control got another order of mud gas separator at the end of April. According to users’ request the order need the ASME Certificated, so all the welding process and material with much higher standard.

ZYQ series Mud gas separator(Poor Boy Degasser) is professional equipment to treat the gas invade mud The MUD GAS SEPARATOR unit, with models engineered for use onshore and offshore, is used to reliably separate and reliably vent large pockets of free gas from the drilling fluid system.

It is also ideal for use when an operator is drilling with an underbalanced mud column. The compact separator is well-suited for the space limitations of offshore drilling. It is skid-mounted and trailer transportable, which simplifies transport, spotting, and installation.

Maximizes free gas/mud separation
Unique U-shaped tube design eliminates moving parts and ensures a positive fluid seal, maintaining safe mud levels
Efficient baffle arrangement to easily separate gas from fluid
Available in varying sizes and lengths, accommodating any volume of fluid with high concentrations of gas
Heavy-duty steel construction and adjustable mounting skid for any rig

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, that may include toxic gases such as hydrogen sulfide, etc. from the drilling fluids processing system. We can design and fabricate the poor boy in varying sizes and lengths to meet your specific drilling conditions

Mud gas separator is a safety equipment in drilling fluid circulating system, which installed in front of shale shakers. But, how to
calculate the flow is a problem. Following is the instruction of all details.

Peak Gas Flow Rate. the critical time for mud gas separator blow-through exists when peak gas flow rates are experienced. Mud/gas separator
blow-through is defined as inefficient separator operation resulting in a mud/gas mixture returning to the mud tanks through the mud
return line.


Two situations can cause separator blow-through.

1. Friction pressure of the gas venting through the vent line exceeds the mud-leg hydrostatic pressure, resulting in evacuation of
fluid from the separator. Friction pressure of the mud through the mud return line is considered negligible because of its short

2. Vessel ID is too small, causing insufficient retention time for the gas to separate efficiently from the mud. This situation is
commonly called insufficient separator cut.

To estimate a peak gas flow rate properly, we must consider a “typical” kick. The typical kick will depend on the well location,
depth, type size, and component ratios of influx. Kick data should be based on previous offset well data and should be a realistic
worst-case gas kick. The well and kick data in Fig. 5 will be used in this paper.

The volume and pressure of the gas upstream of the choke must first be calculated.
