For a recent project, GN Solids Control has provided to a client from Middle East a mud gas separator and mud guns. Both are used for drilling rig solids control system.
1.Mud gas separator:
In a complete drilling mud solids control system with full package of equipment, there should be 5 equipment for separating, among which 4 are used for solids control, with the only exception as mud gas separator, for removing the flammable gas from liquid.
The mud gas separator is located before the shale shaker. It is used to remove the gas bubbles from the liquid. The main function of the mud gas separator is for safety of the whole project, and the gas outlet is linked to an automatic fire ignitor, to be consumed safely.
Mud guns are quite useful and important equipment in a solids control system or a mud plant. They can be used along with mud agitators or used separately. It has two main functions: one is to help the mud agitator for stirring up the drilling mud from settling down to the bottom, the other is to transfer the drilling mud between the tanks with the help of the mud gun line along the tanks. It is an economic equipment without consuming electric power.
