About

Performance.

Availability.

We are a leading manufacturer of drill pipe float valves, gate valves, and shear relief valves. Our valves are used across the globe for onshore and offshore drilling of wells in the oil and gas, water well, and air drilling industries.

Since 1996, the company has grown organically through a commitment to produce superior valves that are durable and perform consistently in harsh drilling conditions. As a trusted source for reliable valves, our production methods conform to quality processes, policies, and procedures.

The foundation of our business is built on the four pillars of quality, performance, reliability and availability. Our management team and dedicated employees make safety, quality, and environmental standards a priority. We understand harsh conditions place stress on drilling equipment and you can count on us to deliver products that meet strict QA/QC verification to protect people and the environment.

Our drill pipe float valve, the "Original Blue Valve," is our flagship product. Building upon the solid reputation of our float valve, we have developed the new DrillmaxPro® series to meet the industry demand for drilling high-pressure wells. Our DrillmaxPro float valve can safely handle pressures up to 10,000 psi.

We have grown and evolved over the years, and our updated look reflects the quality, energy, and forward- looking culture of Drillmax. Our new headquarters and modern 10,000 SF production facility is located in Houston Texas. We strive to exceed our customer’s expectations with product availability, technical support assistance, and customer care sales support from ordering to delivery.

Gate Valves DEMCO® DM Style

A Dependable, bi-directional valve with tight shut-off sealing

Drillmax Demco® DM style Gate Valves (Mud valves) are engineered for reliability in high pressure demands and designed for mud, fluids, gas, and air. The seats are designed to provide a positive, tight shut-off every closing cycle. Once closed, line pressure forces the gate up against the downstream port sealing it against the rubber seat.

  • Interchangeable with Demco® style
  • In-line field repairability
  • 5000 PSI working pressure in sizes 2", 3", 4" and 5"x4"
  • 7500 PSI working pressure in sizes 2"x3", 4", and 5"x4"
  • Available in standard, H2S sour gas, and high temp service
  • Repair kits include Seal kits, Minor, Major, and Major with Stem

Shear Relief Valves

Reliable, safety pressure-relief Demco® style shear relief valve

Drillmax Demco® style Shear Relief valves are known for their dependability and effectiveness and are installed on the discharge end of the mud pump. The shear relief valve controls the pressure in a system to prevent potential equipment failure. When pressure exceeds the limit of the pin, the pin is “sheared” relieving pressure and preventing costly repairs.

  • Available in 2" and 3" connection sizes
  • Interchangeable with Demco® style
  • Maximum pressure ratings from 1000 PSI to 7500 PSI
  • Provides protection of personnel, environment, and property in over-pressure event
  • Re-usable valve – if an over-pressure event occurs, correct pressure problem and insert new shear pin
  • Pin kits, minor, and major repair kits available
