At DrawWorks LP, we provide mud tools and an entire family of flow-back and fill-up tools for oilfield tubulars, including drill pipe, tubing, and casing. All of our products are designed to save time and reduce risk. We strive to simplify two primary drilling processes: handling fluids and running tubulars. DrawWorks is the place to go for every kind of quality mud tool.
Mud Saver Valve
One of our many products is a mud saver valve. At any time during running procedures, the CF-Series valve can fill-up the casing, take flow-back, and circulate without the need to make changes for casing weight or size. This premium mud tool is a spring-loaded valve and has no external parts. To facilitate taking flow-back while running casing having a convertible float shoe or open-ended casing or to facilitate equalizing pressure in the casing, a large area flow-back valve has been integrated into this mud tool.
There are other beneficial features of the CF-Series mud tool, the mud saver valve. The valve prevents drilling mud from draining out of the tool after each joint of casing. This prevents the rig floor from becoming inundated with drilling mud. In addition, rig crews do not have to be drenched with drilling mud themselves. This is a valuable feature that creates a safer and cleaner environment for crews to perform their work. There is significantly less mud that needs to be vacuumed up, since the drill floor stays much cleaner throughout the process.
Benefits and Features
Our CF-Series mud saver valve provides numerous benefits and features, including the following:
- The self-aligning seat has a large flow area, a positive seal, a shorter length, and a lower pressure drop.
- The carbide seat provides higher resistance to wear, which means there are longer periods of time between repair cycles.
- The check valve can check pressure on drill pipe. It also has a larger flow-back area and lower surge pressure when running in hole.
Our clients who have used the CF-valve appreciate that the valve retains the static head of the mud and prevents mud from flowing onto the rig floor when the tool is being raised into the derrick.
Kelly Mud Saver Valve
We also have the Kelly mud saver valve, which has numerous benefits and helpful features, as well. The large opening through ID, for example, provides wireline access. The check valve allows for lower surge pressure while running in hole.
