control of fluid flow during drilling.
Model FC (Automatic Fill valve) Automatic feature allows drill pipe to fill from the bottom,
removing the mess, hazards, and lost time from filing. When running in the hole, automatic fill
feature eliminates the 'ram effect' preventing the down hole pressure surges that can cause
Model G (Full open valve, flapper type):When circulation stops, flapper closes instantly to prevent
cuttings from entering drill string and plugging bit. Valve opens when the first joint is raised out of
hole assuring the first joints drain and are not pulled wet. Saves mud and avoids safety hazard and
