"Poppet-Style" IBOP Valves

Inside Blow-out Preventers (IBOP)

M&M Oil Tools offers our “poppet-style” IBOP valves that automatically stop uncontrolled flow back and protect the swivel, kelly hose and surface pumping equipment from high pressure kicks and potential blow-outs. These valves can be installed anywhere in the drill string and will automatically open to allow normal circulation. Our optional release assembly allows the M&M Oil Tools IBOP to be used as a stand-by surface safety valve that can be quickly stabbed into the drill pipe, tubing, or casing at the rig floor if a kick is detected.

The M&M Oil Tools IBOP valves are available in one or two-piece construction. The compact one-piece design eliminates the internal connection and is ideally suited where space is at a premium or where handling weight is critical. Its smooth OD allows this valve to be run anywhere in the drill string. The two-piece design is available when larger internal flow areas are desired. All valves are offered with a variety of threads and are matched to maintain drill string tensile strength capacity.

Mill certificates, test reports and Certificate of Conformance are provided with each valve.

Our poppet-style check valve features a conical nose and metal-to-metal seat made from high strength materials. The design of the poppet, seat and bypass area minimizes the potential for erosion caused by long term, high-rate circulation.

Additional Information

M&M Oil Tools patented takes the quality of our standard service valves to a new level. The valve’s unique floating ball and spring-loaded seat design forces pressure and flow through the seat, not around its exterior. This eliminates unreliable single direction seat seals, erosion and fouling/binding frequently seen in competitive designs. The floating vented ball and double floating seats guarantee differential pressure by acting only across the downstream side of the ball & seat to minimize the load, prevent distortion of the ball and protect seat support arms. Combining these features with a proprietary stem bearing reduces the torque required to operate the valve by 50% compared to other designs.

Safety valves are designed to quickly stab into drillpipe, tubing or casing if a kick is encountered. Installed at each end of the kelly, or below the top drive, the valves control flow from the wellbore and protect surface equipment from high pressure kicks. The upper well control valve can also function as a mud saver valve by preventing mud loss and hazardous rig floor conditions when tripping pipe.

Available in one- or two-piece design. A compact one-piece design is ideally suited where space is at a premium or where handling weight is critical. Its smooth OD allows this valve to be run anywhere in the drill string. The two-piece design is available when larger internal diameters are desired.

Offered with a variety of threads including left-hand connections for upper well control applications that are matched to maintain drill string tensile strength capacity.

M&M’s API Q-1 Quality Management System provides full traceability. Drillpipe threads conform to API 7-1. Each valve is provided with material certificates, test reports and Certificate of Conformance.
