Vacuum degasser overview
For small amount of entrained gas in a drilling fluid, the vacuum degasser can play a major role of removing small bubbles that a liquid film has enveloped and entrapped. In order for it to be released and break out the air and gas such as methane, H2S and CO2 from the mud to the surface, the drilling fluid must pass degassing machine and it can be accomplished by the solid control equipment called drilling mud degasser which is also a major part of a mud solids control system.
Vacuum degasser for solid control safety is indispensable
The first point we are going to mention about the special need of vacuum degasser for solid control safety is dangerous gases. Because it can eliminate all the gases from the drilling fluid out of the well including some flammable and explosive gases, it successfully avoids the dangerous gases flowing into other machines used after vacuum degasser. We all know that the dangerous gases are easy to burn or explode when they are exposed to air. The use of vacuum degasser effectively removes the gases from the drilling fluid and protects the safety of the solid control.
The second point that we are going to display about the special need of vacuum degasser for solid control safety is that it works under isothermal condition in the whole working process. There is a water-ring vacuum pump contained in it. The constantly fresh water injecting into the machine during its running time helps to cold 518 centrifuge which avoids the extremely high temperature to cause spontaneous combustion of the machine. In this way, it is really important to keep a vacuum degasser around the oil well.
The third point of the need of vacuum degasser for solid control safety is its corrosion resistance. It is obvious that the mental tends to have oxidation change after a long time contacting with oxygen gas in the air. Because the vacuum degasser works under vacuum condition, and the vacuum condition can make the machine far away from oxygen gas. Therefore, there is little corrosion inside the vacuum degasser.
In the above passage, we have displayed the special need of vacuum degasser for solids control from three aspects. May the information can do a little help to you.
