Poor boy degasser

We manufacture mud gas separator in oilfield drilling mud cireculation system .Mud gas separator is also called Poor boy degasser, Gas-Liquid separator. It captures and separate large volume of free gas within the drilling fluid. If there is a “KICK” situation , this vessel separates the mud and the gas by allowing it to flow over baffle plates.The gas then is forced to flow through a line and vent it to a flare. A “KICK” situation happens when the annular hydrostatic pressure in a drilling well temporarily (and usually relatively suddenly) becomes less than the formation, or pore, pressure in a permeable section downhole, and before control of the situation is lost.It is always safe to design the mud/gas separator that will handle the maximum possible gas flow that can occur.

Mud gas separator

Brightway series Mud gas separator 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.



The serious situation is that would cause Chung well, and even blowout accident occurred, if not to treat it timely.?Brightway mud gas Separator combined with the Flare Ignition Device can be used to ensure the drilling process smooth.It is devided into the normal pressure mud gas separator and pressure auto-control gas-liquid separator, according to the pressure.Mud Gas Separator is your best choice to prevent drilling fluids invasion.



The principle behind the mud gas separator is relatively simple. The mud and gas mixture is fed at the inlet allowing it to impinge on a series of baffles designed to separate gas and mud.The free gas then is moved into the flare line to reduce the threat of toxic and hazardous gases and the mud then discharges to the shale shaker and to the mud tank.Gas-liquid separators in other countries also called Poor boy,Liquid-gas separators,Mud/Gas Separators, etc.

Flare Ignition Device

The Flare Ignition Device and mud gas seperator are accustomed deal the tailgas and exhausted fossil fuel from refinery and gas gathering station. it’s accustomed eliminate the damage of harmful gas to surroundings and safety. They are the safety surroundings instrumentation.


Except the refinery and gas gathering station, this instrumentation is matched with drilling gas-mud centrifuge. currently it’s utilized in drilling project wide. it’s utilized in internal oilfields, Xinjiang Oilfield, Szechwan province field, JiangHan Oilfield, and Iran, Egypt,Turkey,Indonesia, Venezuela etc.

Flare Ignition Device

It is created with flare body, management pod of flare, high-voltage generator, cable, hose, LNG tank (equipped by yourself), and backfire restraint .

It is with electronic firing circuit. Its performance is stable and credible.

2 operational Processes

a.      The flamable gas transfers to the gas water of igniter (Flare) through pipelines.

b.     Connect and begin the Electronic Igniter.

c.     Open LNG tank, operate the Electronic Igniter, and fireplace the firing pipe (the class firing).

d.     Firing the firing pipe to fireplace the exhausted gas (the second grade firing).

e. shut LNG tank, quench the firing pipe, fireplace the combustibility exhausted gas.

3  Performances

●Norminal diameter of Igniter (Flare):  DN200mm

●height of Igniter: three.5m

4 Cautions

a. Don’t mangle the insulator of firing lead throughout shipping and swing.

b. choose Associate in Nursing open house wherever are remote from fireplace to put in the igniter.

c. Its skid should be mounted on the mounted base. If necessary, you’ll use the guy wires.

d. Electronic Igniter should be protected against humidness and wind.

e. This instrumentation is matched with drilling mud solids control equipment for  drilling project. Details see the Service Manual of Liquid-gas centrifuge.

f. The management Pod is especially to Electronic Igniter. Details see its manual, Service Manual of management Pod of DHQ.1 Electronic Igniter.
