Considering purchasing a Down Hole String Float Sub?
Swithfloat is a float valve system that is able to be remotely actuated to create a clear path through the valve. The system provides significant rig time savings by allowing well intervention activities without tipping the pipe to remove float valves.
Switchfloat for underbalanced and conventional drilling operations:
To reduce bleed off time when breaking connections during underbalanced drilling it is necessary to install string floats close to surface in the drill string.
String float valves may be utilised as an additional barrier in the drill string as part of conventional drilling operations.
In stuck pipe scenarios conventional string float valves are a barrier to wireline operations.
To undertake directional surveys on wireline conventional string float valves must be removed from the drill string. Additional tripping of pipe to achieve this adds significant rig time to directional surveys on wireline.
