Vacuum Degasser is mostly used in oil & gas drilling rigs. It is used to remove the gas in the drilling mud and keep the property, keep the density, gravity and viscosity of the drilling mud. This unit is usually installed after shakers, can work efficiently to remove gas from gas-cut mud, to prevent potential blowouts. This unit is very important working as one of safety equipment in drilling rigsite.

Recently, we have one client from Africa, purchasing one set vacuum degasser for new project. The client is local famous drilling contractor and work together with Shell, Mobil, Chevron, Halliburton etc.


The vacuum degasser we offer to them, with below technical specifications:

  • Model: GNZCQ360A
  • Main diameter: 920mm
  • Capacity:  ≤360 m3/h (1584GPM)
  • Vacuum Degre: -0.02~-0.04 Mpa
  • Handling Efficiency: ≥95%
  • Main Motor Power: 37Kw (50HP)
  • Pump Motor Power: 7.5Kw (10 HP)
  • Rotation Speed: 860RPM
  • EX Standard: ExdIIBt4
  • Suction line size: 6 inch
  • Outlet line size: 8 inch
  • Weight: 1870kg
  • Dimension: 2100×1605×1729mm

The manufacture is as per GB/T11645-89 National Standard.After all assembly finish, test with water. All connections and welding points no leakage, vacuum degree reach to above 400mmHg. Within 2hours, bearing temp. Keep below 60°C. No abnormal noise or vibration.

Except for vacuum degasser, we export large quantity of decanter centrifuge, vertical cuttings dryer, mud agitator, centrifugal pumps, shale shakers and shaker screens.

1) GN premium decanter centrifuge for Africa market

GNLW363CG or GNLW363CG-VFD is the most popular decanter centrifuge for solids control drilling market. The 14inch decanter centrifuge can be used for barite recovery, mud weight cutting and LGS separation. This is the most flexible centrifuge model, which similar to US brand centrifuges.


2) GN premium vertical cuttings dryer for Africa drilling waste management project

GNCD930 vertical cuttings dryer is tested in rigsite for almost 3 years. In the past years, we keep improving the quality and design of the dryer. For now, the quality and performance can compete with US brand vertical cuttings dryer. Many drilling contractor shift from US brand dryer to GN Solids Control brand, to get much higher cost-effective product.

3) Large quantity of centrifugal pumps and shaker screens also exported to Nigeria, Egypt, Libya, Sudan, Gabon, Ghana etc.
