Operation of the Mud Gas Separator

Mud gas separator is our hot selling product, which is usually applied before shale vibrating screen.

Mud Gas Separator Operation

The purpose of the Mud Gas Separator is to remove entrained gas from the drilling fluid. The mud gas separator is the first piece of equipment that treats the drilling fluid and is connected between the mud manifold and the degasser inlet line. It is primarily used to remove large gas bubbles from the gas-infiltrated drilling fluid. These large bubbles are expanding gases in the drilling fluid that mostly fill a section of the borehole annulus. If they are not removed promptly, they can easily cause well surges, which pose a danger to both the drilling well and the operator.
