Model FA - Plunger Type - Pressure Monitoring

The Model FA Pressure-Monitoring plunger-type float valve has a special port running through the plunger of the float valve. This valve is used when monitoring the bit head for gas pressure and allowing differential pressure measuring when required. The port also permits partial automatic fill during run in.

FLOAT VALVE INSTALLATION: Simply lubricate the side seals and slide the float valve into the cavity of the float sub or the bored-out drill collar. Caution: fill drill pipe regularly when going in the hole. Failure to do this can cause damage to the drill pipe and float valve.
