Cages made from hi-tech alloys. Coated with Xylan® - the most successful fluoropolymer coating in the world that dramatically reduces corrosion and erosion.

Float Valve Installation - These float valves are easy to install. Simply lubricate the side seal rubbers and slide the float valve into the cavity of the recess of the float sub or drilled out drill collar.

Caution: Fill drill pipe regularly when going in the hole. Failure to do so can cause damage to the drill pipe and/or the float valves.

Float Valve Assemblies - Available Types

Model F plunger-type valve

Model "F"
Plunger-Type Valve

The Model F plunger-type valve offers positive and instant shut-off. In normal drilling operations the Model F offers economy and durability.

The piston stops flow-back when making connections and keeps cuttings out of the drill string.

Model FA Ported Plunger-Type Valve

Model "FA"
Ported Plunger-Type Valve

The Model FA offers all of the standard features of the Model F float valve, with the added feature of a ported piston, which allows a fluid path through the center of the valve.

This feature allows for an automatic partial filling of the drill pipe during run in.

Model "FBP"
Integral Baffle Plate Valve

The Model FBP also offers all of the standard features of the Model F float valve, with the added feature of an integral baffle plate at the top of the float valve that is both heavy duty and shatterproof. For operations where a baffle plate is always used for instrumentation or fluid control, the integral baffle plate configuration offers an economical option. The Model FBP is available in three sizes: 3 1/2 IF, 4R, an 5F6R.

Model G Full Flow Flapper-Type Valve

Model "G"
Full Flow Flapper-Type Valve

The Model G flapper-type valve features an investment cast flapper that is quick opening, allowing for full flow through the valve.

The Model G is designed for highly abrasive drilling fluids.

Model GA Flapper Full Flow Ported with Carbide Orifice

Model "GA" Flapper
Full Flow Ported with Carbide Orifice

The Model GA is identical to the Model G, except for a carbide orifice that makes the flapper ported.

The Model GA flapper allows for differential pressure readings at the surface.
