Optimal MPD Mud Gas Separator

Managed Pressure Drilling Equipment

The Optimal Pressure Control Drill-Through Mud Gas Separator (MGS) has been designed from the outset to be used as a high-capacity atmospheric drill through MGS.


The MGS can also be configured for use as a pressurized 3-phase separator with the capability to handle solids discharge for UBD or 2-phase MPD operations. The vessel is equipped with nozzles (flanges) to facilitate installation of two 4” x 6” pressure relief valves, back-light sight glasses, level-control instrumentation, low and high level shut downs, flush pump system, and condensate skimming line.
