Patent Pending Application Number 2-439-331
Wenzel Downhole's new Multi-point Stabilized motor consists of Stabilization on the top and bottom of the Power Section (Stator), spaced approximately 10 feet apart (3 meters). Also incorporated would be a multi-point stabilizer on the bottom end of the motor or the bearing assembly.
These Multi-point blades on the stabilizers centralize the motor in the hole and the upset diameters where the stabilizers screw on creates a pressure differential around the motor that enhances the stability of the bottom hole assembly, (B.H.A.)
This pressure differential increases the speed of the mud flow and cleaning action around the B.H.A. which reduces the chances of the cuttings collecting around the motor, hence reducing chances of getting stuck in the hole.
These Multi-point motors have achieved minimum amount of deviation in straight hole drilling applications. The multi-point motor can also be used in directional drilling applications once the tangent section of a well has been established which will minimize tool face & Azimuth problems.
