Details on drilling mud equipments

They use equipments to match their 800bbl mud system. So the detailed information on equipments are as following: ZYQ900 Poor boy degasser, ZCQ240 Vcuum degasser, SB5x6-14 Centrifugal pump, JBQ11 Mud mixer or mud agitator. The poor boy degasser usually used in deep oilwell drilling it is also named as “Mud gas separator”.

This Thailand customer is an oilwell drilling services company they has special requirements on the poor boy degasser. As we know they use the poor boy degasser in 800bbl total treating capacity system. They requested the vessel diameter should be 36″. A ladder on the side also need a 10ft U-Tube at least. The U-Tube is related with liquid seal or mud leg.

At maximum capacity, naturally more internal pressure will be created causing chance of overcoming liquid seal (mud leg). On the other hand when the unit is handling very little fluid, there is less possibility of overcoming the mud leg. They requested 10ft U-Tube is more appropriate for their actual requirements on the degasser( 220~300m3/h) for the whole mud system treating capacity.

The detailed specs of the poor boy degasser is as following

Model: ZYQ900 (Customized design)

Main vessel diameter: 36″ (910mm)

Treating capacity: 220~300m3/h

Mud inlet line: 5″, and 13’length

Furthermore, they are in urgent demand on above drilling mud equipments. So they ship them by air. Then the mud gas seaparator must be designed as easy-air shipment. Actually, for this mud gas separator the transportation dimension is 1669L x 1669W x 5691H. Consider their shipment issue, our engineer designed this into 2 parts. Although we manufacture the customized nonstandard poor boy degasser we finished it just 1 week.

Of course also other items we did our best to satisfy the dimension requirements. Such as ZCQ240 Vacuum degasser, mud agitators. We also take customer’s freight cost in consideration we control the weight as little as possible.
