Vacuum degasser is a special and indispensable equipment during the drilling mud processing system. It is located behind the shale shaker to wipe off the invading air.It plays an important role in recalling drilling mud proportion, keeping drilling mud performance. Otherwise, it also could be used as a agitator with big power which suitable for variable kinds of drilling fluids purification system.
» Why Vacuum Degasser
After the invading of air into drilling mud, the density of mud will become lower and the viscosity will be higher, which will cause a inefficient operation in the downstream processes. The purpose of separating out the pure drilling fluid will not obtain. At last, the whole system will lost its value. Therefore, the existence of vacuum degasser is very necessary.
» How Vacuum Degasser Works
Vacuum degasser is mainly cosist of a treatment vessel, one chief motor, one vacumm pump and electrical controling parts. It works by creating lower pressure inside the top part of the vessel, so the mud will flow into the degassing tank fluently. Special separation baffle-design makes air or other gaseous impurities can be removed from the mud. The air is siphoned from the vessel after pressure is low enough to pump the gas out of the substance. A high-vacuum process environment is maintained for a variety of product testing and laboratory applications. This allows the user to analyze products or materials under a wide range of conditions and under predetermined atmospheric or environmental parameters. after processing through the degasser, the fluid will be treated without the interference of air in the next processes.
