Kelly valve

Kelly valve is a manually operated ball type valve for the drill stem, divided into upper and lower sections. The upper Kelly valve is connected between lower end of swivel and upper end of Kelly. The lower Kelly valve is connected between upper end of drill pipe and lower end of Kelly or lower end of Kelly saver subs. The Kelly valve can be opened or closed off by simply turning a special operating wrench 90° according to indicated direction.

Tianhe Downhole motor design d on the most advanced international design technology. We have a Closely cooperating with domestic, surgical research institutes, universities and oilfield drilling companies, and through careful research and development of R & D center in Canada, the design of technical parameters and structure can meet the most demanding oil drilling needs. Tianhe downhole motor is designed for durability and longer service life for different use conditions, with the most stringent specific tolerances for design and manufacturing standards.

The common drill pipe is a rod that connects the drill bit, delivers the drilling fluid and transmits the power in the drilling tool. Our common drill pipe conforms to SY/T5561 and API Spec5DP standards. In order to reduce the wear of the casing and drill pipe, we can weld the wear belt at the end of the drill pipe female buckle joint. Our company has obtained the production and use license of ARNCO 100XT, ARNCO 150XT, ARNCO 300XT and ARNCO 350XT authorized by the American Anke company.

The agitator can improve the effectiveness of bit weight transfer and reduce the friction between drilling tool and borehole through the longitudinal vibration produced by the hydraulic action of drilling fluid, especially in the process of directional drilling to improve the bit weight transfer and reduce torsional vibration. It is a downhole tool used to solve downhole depressurization and improve weight on bit transfer. Smooth weight on bit transfer improves the ability to adjust the bit toolface to reach further target zones. It does not require too much work to adjust the tool face during drilling, keeping the tool face stable and increasing ROP. Particularly suited for horizontal, extended-reach Wells, it can be used in conjunction with MWD, screw, and any bit.


The sealing principle for Kelly valve is to ensure a close seat between the ball and the ball seat. The lower seat is supported by a spring. The force provided by the spring keep the ball securely in place with lower seat. During normal drilling operation, the hole is kept unblocked by turning the stem to “on” position; In case of kick or blowout, turn the operating stem to “off” position to close off the internal bore of drill string, the kick or blowout accident is avoided due to a high pressure sealing situation between ball and the ball seat.
