Advantages of Burgess Magna-Vac Degassers®

Check Us Against The Competition!

  • Safety - the most important feature of Burgess Magna-Vac Degassers®. Gas can be safely piped directly to the flare line as no air and oxygen is entrained in the gas to create an explosive mixture. Vessel-type degassers have air and gas mixed.

  • Fabrication costs in rig structures are greatly reduced since Burgess Magna-Vac Degassers® weigh one-third as much as vessel-type degassers.

  • The compact size of Burgess Magna-Vac Degassers® saves on mud room and mud tank space.

  • The degasser has ability to run dry with no mud or low mud level continuously without harm.

  • Burgess Magna-Vac Degassers® require considerably less piping than vessel-type degassers.

  • Burgess Magna-Vac Degassers® are equipped with 20 horsepower electric motors. A 60 to 75 horsepower centrifugal pump is required to operate vessel-type degassers.

  • Fuel cost savings are based on 20 horsepower versus 75 horsepower.

  • Burgess Magna-Vac Degassers® are closed to the atmosphere and are capable of scavenging the oxygen from the mud, resulting in lower corrosion costs on the mud system. Vessel-type degassers have to bleed the atmosphere into the vessel in order to control the vacuum.

  • Burgess Magna-Vac Degassers® can handle 100 cubic feet per minute of gas. The vacuum pump on vessel-type degassers handles only 20 cubic feet per minute of gas.

  • Burgess Magna-Vac Degassers® can be controlled by a single start/stop button. They are self-regulating and require no start and stop procedures like vessel-type degassers.

  • The vacuum/blower on Burgess Magna-Vac Degassers® is capable of entraining mud in the event of a mechanical failure; simply fix the problem and wash out the vacuum/blower. If mud is entrained at the positive displacement pump of vessel-type degassers, the valves, pistons and cylinders are ruined and pump must be overhauled.

  • Burgess Magna-Vac Degassers® can be disassembled into two components and carried into the mud room through a standard manway door. If a vessel-type degasser is used, the floor or deck must be cut out to remove the unit.
