BEI Kimco Magnetics offers high-performance motor for a down hole measurement while drilling (MWD) application. Key to the down hole tool string design was a motor capable of operation at elevated winding temperatures of up to 220 °C and pressures approaching 30,000 psi. The motor is used to position a sensor that would take measurements of the materials encountered during oil exploration operations. To meet the manufacturer’s requirements, BEI Kimco developed a high performance, 3.0-in. diameter x 8.5-in. length motor with a custom housing and dual shafts for gearbox and resolver mounting. High-energy samarium-cobalt magnets are used to provide high operating efficiencies and superior corrosion resistance. The motor was also designed for operation while filled with oil, to compensate for the high pressures. www.beikimco.com BEI Kimco Magnetics
