WHAT’S NEW FOR ONSHORE & OFFSHORE: UPSTREAM, MIDSTREAM, DOWNSTREAM OPERATIONS
Lighter, smaller, high power density
AC drilling motors newly introduced
A new line of high power density AC induction mo-
tors is unveiled as “purpose-built for top drives, mud
pumps, drawworks, and rotary tables.”
Among key motor benefts are ability to drill deeper,
faster, and more effciently along with making longer
horizontal runs plus to increase pump pressure.
In motors ranges from 450 to 2,000 hp, models are
designed to deliver up to 50% more power and torque
within the same frame size that is standard for each application. Standard 400 hp frame sizes deliver up to 600-
hp; standard 600 hp frame sizes up to 800 hp, standard
1150 hp frame sizes up to 1350 hp, and standard 1500
hp up to 1600, 1800, and 2000 hp.
Induction motor designs feature identical frame size
and weight of standard lower horsepower types. They
comprise proprietary intra-slot cooling technologies
along with fully optimized copper-to-steel ratios.
With improved coil slot and bar geometries, models
lower nominal rpm rate at the same hpzº levels. They
have spre-delivery systematic electrical stress testing.

New hydraulic casing gas compressors
Hydraulic Casing Gas Compressors are introduced
with a new compression element designed specifcally
for low-volume solution gas applications.
Simple-designed HCGs process liquids so there is no
possibility of liquid lock. They do not have pneumatic
control valves, scrubber, foat switches, or a liquid pump
that can fail, declares the manufacturer. They are also
independent of the pump jack. Complete data are free.
