Our vacuum degasser operates on “ultra-thin” film principle. The drill mud enters the tank, forces it to flow and is then distributed to a layer of internal baffles made of fiberglass material engineered to allow the liquid inside the vacuum degasser to flow as thin film and exposed to the vacuum within the vessel. This layer of mud allows the gas to escape or break out of the mud.
The vacuum pump releases the gas and transfers it to the disposal line. Mud exits the vessel under the action on the venturi and then it is returned th the mud system.
FSI vacuum degassers operate in three functions: circulating the mud, vacuum, creation and gas removal. The venturi nozzle at the discharge pipping creates a vacuum within the vessel and circulates mud by drawing entrained bubbles in the mud into the vessel, continuously removing gas from the vessel and discharging it to the rig’s flare line or its environmental control system.
