Float Valves

Drillmax produce a superior float valve with a longer service life. All of their cages are made from hi-tech alloys coated with Xylan - a highly successful fluoropolymer coating which dramatically reduces corrosion. All Drillmax parts are completely interchangeable with Baker and Crestex. The range has ported and non-ported valves including models for high temperature conditions. Repair Kits are available to extend the lifetime of float valve.



F Plunger Type


The F Plunger type valve is the most commonly used and offers positive and instant shut-off. In normal drilling operations it offers economy and durability. The piston stops flow-back when making connections and prevents cuttings from entering the drill string.



FA Ported Plunger Type


The FA Ported Plunger type valve offers all the standard features of the F type withthe added feature of a ported piston, which allows a fluid path through the centre of the valve. This feature allows for an automatic partial filing of the drill pipe duting run in.



G Full Flow Flapper Type


The G flapper type valve features an investment cast flapper that is quick opening, allowing for full flow through the valve. The G type is designed for highly abrasive drilling fluids



GA Flapper Full Flow Ported Carbide Orifice


Identical to the G flapper type valve except for a carbide orifice that makes the flapper ported. The GA flapper allows for differential pressure readings at the surface.



GC Flapper Full Flow Automatic Fill Type


Identical to the G flapper type valve but adds an automatic fill feature when going in the hole. The GC Type helps prevent pressure surges that could cause formation breakdown.



GCA Flapper Full Flow Ported Carbide Orifice


Identical to the GA flapper type valve, GCA allows for differential pressure readings at the surface, and adds an automatic fill feature when going in the hole. This prevents pressure surges that could cause formation breakdown.
