The vacuum degasser is the most common form of degassing systems used in the oil & gas industry. Drillng fluid is pulled into the tank by vacuum action. The fluid rises inside the tank and is distributed over a series of plates which releases the gas bubbles from the drilling fluid. The gas is pumped out of the system and the fluid transferred to hydrocyclones or a centrifuge for further processing.
Each plate features a weir design for equal distribution of liquid across surface.
Multiple stacked plates spreads gas-cut mud so that entrained gas bubbles are brought to the surface where deep corrugation provides turbulance giving maximum separation efficiency of gases from mud.
Vent on each plate for direct vertical exiting of the separated gases.
