Summit-FAS uses Ratcliff manufactured gas extractors equipped with a 2-component riser with a calcium choride chamber and ball shutoff chamber. The Ratcliff impeller shaft has three hard rubber impeller ‘fingers’ to agitate the drilling mud within a stainless steel canister. The explosion proof motor drives the shaft at 1725 RPM and the entire trap assembly can be raised or lowered on a crank shaft to optimize the flow through the trap.
The riser is connected with quick connect cam fittings for easy maintenance and cleaning. Ratcliff Extractor photo shown with optional sluice box.
