Vacuum Degasser

Mud Gas Seperator


The vacuum degasser, also known as a mud/gas separator is one of the first units of solids control equipment arranged to treat drilling mud. As such, they process all of the drilling mud from the flow line before the mud reaches the primary shale shakers. The units have no moving parts and rely on the density difference between the gas and the mud for removal. The process is simple, yet very effective for well drilling fluids processing system.


The vacuum degasser is used to remove the small entrained gas bubbles left in the mud by the mud/gas separator. These units are positioned downstream from mud/gas separators, gumbo removal equipments (if utilized), shale shakers, and mud conditioners (if utilized) while hydrocyclone desanders and decanting centrifuges follow in the arrangement.


Features Include:

  • Weir around the plates for equal distribution of liquid on each plate.

  • Multiple leaf plates surface area spreads gas-cut mud so that entrained gas bubbles are brought to the surface where deep corrugation provides turbulence giving maximum separation efficiency of gases from mud.

  • Vent on each plate for direct vertical exiting of  the separated gases.



Elgin Separation Solutions offers a 600 and 1200 gpm vacuum degasser.
