AIMS offers stator for downhole motors

Offshore staff

PETERBOROUGH, UK The oil and gas industries now have available for downhole drilling a new EU-patented motor stator from Advanced Interactive Materials Science Ltd (AIMS).

The UK-based company has designed a unique near-net-shaped helicoidal motor stator featuring a telemetry hole, using powder metallurgy. Previously, it has not been possible to incorporate a hole through a metal stator that can resist the abrasive, corrosive, and erosive conditions.

The telemetry hole allows the hardware be placed within a mud motor stator in any direction – either straight and parallel to the axis of the stator, or helically, extending beyond its axis – without compromising the strength and durability of the stator.
