Mud gas separator is professional equipment to treat the gas invade mud. How to correctly use it is very crucial in drilling operation.
Operation principle of the separator
Drilling fluid with gas invading goes into the separator at the import tangentially and drops to a series baffles along the inner wall. After collision to increasing the contact area, it flows downward and become to a turbulent state which makes gas separate from mud and the free gas passes through the top of tank and discharged from the gas export. The length of gas export pipe can be determined at site and be induced to the safe place. The drilling fluid without gas will flow into the circular tank.
Mud gas separator should meet the following requirements
Mud gas separator inlet pipe diameter should be equal to or greater than the diameter of the throttle pipe the discharge pipe.
The discharge pipeline diameter shall be not less than the inner diameter of the pipe imports, mud discharged directly to the vibration sieve inlet manifold or mud storage tank.
According to practical experience, treating capacity of mud gas separator must be 5 times more than the design cycle.
