Back Pressure Valve

Click images to view larger.



The Back Pressure Valve is used to control back flow from high pressure formations through the drill string back to the surface. It allows for downward fluid circulation within the drill string. Through the use of a downhole tool an opening sleeve can either be locked into place in the valve assembly or retrieved via wire line. This allows the valve to be locked open for fluid circulation in either direction or for usage of downhole tools.


D‑Valves manufactures Back Pressure Valve bodies from chromoly steel and uses the latest in stainless, chromoly and bronze for the internal parts, meeting NACE specifications for use in sour service. Back Pressure Valves are only available in two piece body construction and are supplied with either API or proprietary connections. Back Pressure Valves are available in 5000 or 10,000 PSI.
