“You’ll never drill without it.”

MISSION

To be an innovator, fostering efficient, safe, and cost-effective methods of downhole drilling.

Baffle Plates

We created our baffle plates to increase the reliability of LWD, MWD, and telemetry tools by preventing foreign objects from obstructing pulse mechanisms. They also protect downhole tools from damage caused by dropped objects and protect bits and motors from obstructive material missed by conventional screens.

Protect your downhole assets with an economical and effective solution that offers an additional level of insurance and peace of mind. Baffles fit directly into the box end of the pipe joint or can be installed directly into the top of our 4R and5F6R DrillGuard float valves. The baffles also provide a stable landing zone for all drop-type instruments. The concave top of the baffle helps to center the tool for more accurate measurements.

Available sizes:
  • 3 ½ IF 
  • 4 ½ XH 
  • 4 ½ IF 
  • 6 5/8 Reg 
  • NC 56 

Float Valves

DrillGuard Systems’ float valves are designed to perform. They are ideal for horizontal wells, and for drilling in the high-pressure and high-temperature zones of Wyoming, Pennsylvania, Ohio, North and South Dakota, north Louisiana (Haynesville Shale), and south Louisiana.
Our floats are made of 8620 steel alloy, heat treated to a Rockwell hardness of 55, then carburized and nickel-plated to prevent corrosion from H2S gas and drilling chemicals.

Distinctive Design

What makes them truly unique is their design, which includes the patented Delta Shaft. This three-quarter-inch triangular shaft adds strength and enables drilling fluids, such as LCM and drilling beads, to pass through, eliminating float failures and jamming caused by these materials.
We reduced the beveled angle of the dart — from 44 to 22 ½ degrees — to increase the sealing area with a metal-to-metal seal that eliminates rubber sealants.
The spring shield also provides several advantages. When the dart is compressed, the shield lowers over the Iconel spring and protects it from the “washing” effect caused by high-pressure fluids flowing past the spring. In the compressed position, the shield also acts as a stop, preventing spring distortion from over compression. And when the spring closes over the shaft guide bore, it prevents many of the mud-borne solids from entering the bore.

Pipe Screens

Pipe screens are an essential component of successful downhole operations. Our screens — constructed of high-quality steel and available at an economical price — help protect sensitive equipment. Like our other products, they are ideal for high-pressure, high-temperature environments.
