The proven inside preventer.

Simple, dependable and effective, the Flocon IBOP is your first line of defense against most inside blowout hazards. By preventing high pressure backflow through the drill string, the Flocon IBOP helps protect your crew, the swivel, standpipe and pumps, while drilling or tripping, when seconds count!

Flocon's IBOP can be run downhole, right through all conventional BOP stacks. What's more, it can be left in-line and run as deep as necessary while permitting drilling fluids to flow freely down the stem. Unlike downhole preventers, you don't have to trip the whole string to install, inspect or remove Flocon's IBOP.

1. Heavy duty construction.
The IBOP is built to withstand today's heavier drill string loads, higher pressures (up to 15,000 psi), abrasive extremes and there's a Flocon IBOP model to fit all common tool joint and drill pipe specs.

2. Large sealing area.
Flocon's conical, case hardened steel dart and durable, elastomer seat provide a positive seal even when abrasion and severe service have severely damaged the seat. It's that good!

3. Outstanding flow characteristics.
Our unique dart configuration and broad sealing surface dramatically reduces cutting action for superior downhole flow throughout the kill.

4. Fast, five-step operation.
Stab it, spin it with its built-in handles, torque it, unscrew the releasing pin and back the setting tool out of the sealing sub. That's all there is to it. You can then stab the kelly or pipe and run the string in to kill the blowout below the BOP stack if necessary. Your crew's protected; your hardware's protected. It's that simple. It's that effective.
