Xcaliber, LP drilling motors offers a variety of positive displacement motors (PDM). A PDM operates by converting the hydraulic energy of the drilling fluid being pumped down through the drill string into mechanical energy directly at the bit. This conversion of hydraulic energy to mechanical energy is facilitated by the “Power Section”. The power section is comprised of two components, the rotor and the stator. The stator is the external component of the power section which is made of a steel casing that has been injected with rubber which is molded into a helical pattern. The rotor is the internal component of the power section which is machined in a helical pattern to match the stator. The rotor will always have one less lobe than the stator which allows for cavities to be created. By capturing the drilling fluid within these cavities the fluid pressure is converted into mechanical energy generating a rotational motion which develops both torque as well as speed. The amount of torque and speed developed by the power section varies depending on the number of lobes as well as the pitch length of the lobes. Xcaliber offers several types of power sections for use in a variety of drilling applications. Using the correct power section for the correct application ensures higher productivity on site.
