The vacuum degasser, also known as a mud/gas separator is one of the first units of solids control equipment arranged to treat drilling mud. Today, DC Solid control shipped 3 sets vacuum degasser for a repeat Russian clients.
The model of vacuum degasser is ZCQ240, the main diameter is 700mm, and treating capacity is ≤240 m3/h, vacuum power is 2.2kw. The vacuum degasser is used to remove the small entrained gas bubbles left in the mud by the mud/gas separator.
These units are positioned downstream from mud/gas separators and shale shakers while hydrocyclone desanders and decanting centrifuges follow in the arrangement. DCZZCQ Vacuum Degassers are able to service the needs of any application .It is usually installed after the shakers. Each degasser effectively and efficiently removes gases from gas-cutmud, thus ensuring that the proper mud weight is pumped down hole. In doing so, the degassers are able to aid in the prevention of potential blowouts
Unlike the traditional vacuum degasser, DCZCQ vacuum degasser is a self-contained unit, DC Vacuum Degasser is monitored by level sensor to protect over suction of the fluids. The gas-cut mud is drawn into the degasser by a vacuum created by a regenerative vacuum without needing centrifugal pump .
