GeoForce® Even Layer Thickness Motors

GeoForce motors can be configured to perform reliably in a wide range of drilling applications and environments, including: directional, vertical, horizontal, extended-reach, short radius, intermediate radius, air/foam, underbalanced, shale, casing, high-pressure/high-temperature, and abrasive, and are compatible with synthetic-, oil-, and water-based mud systems.

Even-layer Stator

Enhanced performance

Delivering 65 percent more torque per unit length than conventional elastomer stator technology, GeoForce motors feature a contoured steel stator with an even-layer lining of specially-engineered elastomer that allows for higher operating temperatures and longer, more productive runs. GeoForce motors reduce stalling, lessen damaging stick-slip, withstand higher temperatures, are more resistant to fluid interaction, and deliver higher ROP.

Features of the GeoForce Motor
  • Even-layer stator technology reduces heat generation and retention
  • Unique power-unit stator elastomer lining supported by profiled steel stator lobes, which provide a more effective rotor-to-stator seal, resulting in more efficient power production
  • High differential pressure capability (250 psi/stage)
Benefits of the GeoForce Motor
  • Provides greater torque output than conventional motors
  • Delivers more consistent RPM and torque, increasing ROP and bit life
  • Operates in higher operating temperature (350°F/175°C)
  • Reduces failures associated with chemical-induced swelling by having more resistance than conventional stators
