Kapwell offers two types of MGS: atmospheric and pressurised. The atmospheric type separator is standard equipment on virtually all rigs and is referred to in the field as a “gas buster” or “poor boy” separator. The main advantage of this type of separator is its operational simplicity which does not utilise control valves on either the gas or mud discharge lines. A pressurised MGS is designed to operate with moderate backpressure, generally 50 psi or less. Pressurised separators are used to overcome line pressure losses when an excessive length of vent line is required to safely flare and burn the hazardous gas an extended distance from the rig. The pressurised separator is considered special rig equipment.
