Components for Downhole Motors and Drilling Tools
Technical Ceramic Components for Downhole Motors and Drilling Tools
Motors and tools used during drilling processes are subjected to extreme loading and wear conditions. The beneficial properties of technical ceramics, such as strength, hardness, durability, and corrosion resistance, make these materials ideal components for mud motors and drilling tools.
CoorsTek’s material experts work with customer teams to understand the application and create an optimal, best-value solution. For example, yttria-partially stabilized zirconia might be recommended for a logging while drilling (LWD) tool due to its electrical properties and structural strength, while a measurement while drilling (MWD) tool would benefit from Dura-Z zirconia for its superior wear and durability. And the hardness and corrosion resistance of UltraSiC silicon carbide would make it an ideal material for a rotary steerable system’s (RSS) mechanical seals, as well as a mud motor’s bearings.
For every application, CoorsTek technical ceramic materials are made to customers’ designs for many drilling tool components. Using CoorsTek’s technical ceramic components in your drilling tools will extend equipment life, lower total cost of operations, and reduce non-productive time.
