Los Angeles, Calif. – Ducommun Technologies, Inc. (DTI) announces an expansion to its product line of high-pressure and high-temperature AC induction motors for downhole oil exploration tools. The two new designs with outside dimensions of 3.5 and 3.625 in. offer improved motor efficiency and reduced temperature rise and represent a significant step in performance and reliability at ambient temperatures of up to 450°F (230°C) and pressures up to 30,000 psi.
The existing product line of single-phase electric motors includes designs from 1.5 up to 3.625 in. outside diameter (1.5 hp) that can be offered with gear heads, feedback devices or other custom specified requirements. The motors are typically used to run the central hydraulic pump or are directly coupled to the drill bit. They are also used as actuators for many other downhole tool applications.
Ducommun’s high performance motion control devices include three-phase induction motors, alternators, BLDC motors and resolvers that are recognized for their reliability in downhole drilling tools in oil and gas exploration applications.
