MGS Series Ordinary-pressure mud gas separator is a kind of special equipment for the primary degassing of gas-cut drilling fluid and is mainly used to eliminate big bubbles =f3mm in diameter from gas-cut drilling fluid. These big bubbles are expansible gas in drilling fluid filling some sections of downhole annulus, and if not being degassed, the gas is easy to cause well kick and even blowout from the rotary table. KOSUN mud gas separator adopts superior materials, which can help to effectively prevent erosion of harmful gas and ensure personnel machine and production safety. Generally, the mud gas separator is installed on the ground beside mud tank. The ground shall be horizontal and solid, and provided with anchor bolt pits. During installation, use a crane to hoist the mud gas separator by lifting lugs on the top of main body, vertically and slowly place it on the ground, tighten up steel wire ropes between three positions (uniformly distributed) on the top of main body and the ground, ensure the main body vertical to the ground, place anchor bolts and fasten them. After installation in place, lead the exhaust pipe of mud gas separator to a place 60-80m away from the wellhead. The pipe shall be provided by user. Connect mud inlet to the rotary blowout preventer or choke manifold, close the butterfly valve at drain outlet, open the butterfly valve at mud outlet, and connect mud outlet to mud tank with pipeline. When moving, disassemble pipes, loosen steel wire ropes, use a crane to hoist the top of main body, unscrew anchor bolts, and place it horizontally, and then the ladder can be used as a support for moving. When the mud gas separator is not in use, drain drilling fluid out of it and rinse the mud gas separator with water. Do not store mud in the mud gas separator to avoid its ineffectiveness due to the dried mud.
