The Citadel DEVGRU team has outdone themselves this time… We’ve taken the most over-engineered and relentlessly tested ULTRA MAG valve family and implemented truly game-changing improvements with validation testing proving it can not only survive, but thrive in the most dastardly of downhole conditions. The recent testing regimen was equivalent to bulletproof vests not only taking a gun-shot BUT drug, hit, run-over, stabbed, burned, and blown-up prior to being shot 100 times. It’s like Chuck Norris and a honey badger had a baby…

338 ULTRA MAG VALVE 2.0

First commercialized in April 2017, the 338 ULTRA MAG valve has become the industry’s go-to float valve for challenging applications, proving itself more than 6,000 times downhole. Shall we pat ourselves on the back or say, “NOT GOOD ENOUGH!”, and strip it down only to build it back up and implement all the collective learning between us and our customers over the past three years?

“How do you make the best even better” you ask? What more can be done when what we’ve previously done VASTLY EXCEEDS industry standards by testing to 18,000 psi at 400°F with NITROGEN GAS after a 10 bpm for 24-hour flow endurance test with sand laden mud??

We’re glad you asked.

  • 10 BPM FOR 36 HOUR FLOW ENDURANCE
    • 75% PRESSURE DROP REDUCTION – LESS FRICTION = LESS WEAR
  • 100% METAL ALLOY CONSTRUCTION – ZERO WEAK POINTS
    • MULTIPLE 9000 PSI DISCHARGES DIRECTLY ON TOP OF VALVE – NO DAMAGE
  • WELL BARRIER VARIATION
    • EVERY PRODUCTION VALVE IS GAS TESTED WITH ZERO BUBBLE CRITERIA
  • WET SHOE VARIATION
    • ENGINEERED AND TESTED FOR LONG TERM SERVICE AND INJECTION
      • SUITABLE FOR USE WITH COMPLETION BRINES AND ACIDS
