DOWNHOLE MOTOR SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR DIRECTIONAL AIR DRILLING

Les Shale Eastman Christensen Houston A positive displacement motor (PDM), designed specifically for use with air as the drilling medium, reduces the limitations of air drilling with mud motors. Conventional motors that run on air rather than mud have a reduced stator life and accelerated damage to bearings which were designed for lubrication with mud. Mud motors are designed to be run using drilling mud as the power source, as a lubricant, and as a heat (friction) dissipater.
