The IB mechanically activated fluid loss isolation barrier valve provides a reliable, mechanical solution for fluid loss control in your well completion, eliminating potential formation damage. Initially designed for electric submersible pump (ESP) applications, the IB valve provides a means of isolating the formation below the uppermost gravel-pack packer before the upper completion has been installed and can be utilized in frac pack, gravel pack and standalone screen applications.
The IB valve provides a reliable means of:
Preventing fluid loss to formations after completing initial gravel pack operations
Isolating formations during up-hole operations throughout the life of the well

The IB series mechanically activated fluid loss control device provides a means to isolate wellbore fluids from the reservoir. Although designed initially for
electric submersible pump (ESP) applications, the IB is also ideal for isolating zones and sand control applications.
