RE|FLEX Premium HP/HT Drilling Motors
The RE|FLEX Premium Bearing Section is a proprietary design, developed to convert extreme loading parameters into efficient drilling action.
Internal components are optimized for cyclic fatigue-loading (bending stress) which is another common failure mechanism seen in the form of twist-offs. Because of this, all internal connections on RE|FLEX motors are double-shouldered, designed with bending and high torque in mind. Two shouldering faces increase the friction of a connection, leading to a higher torque rating and increased durability.
RE|FLEX Bearing Sections are designed to work with the highest-torque power sections available, as well as the highly aggressive PDC bits being run in today’s drilling environments.
In order to meet the HPHT (High-Pressure High-Temperature) and torque demands of the RE|FLEX Premium Motor and AMP: All-Metal Power metal-to-metal power section technology, the entire drive and bend sections of the motor had to be re-imagined.
The robust design of the RE|FLEX ensures it will have the ability to drill long hole sections in one run at a low run cost-per-hour.
Constant Velocity Drive
InFocus uses superior rock bit balls under compression, unlike traditional ball drives which operate under shear. Operating under compression instead of shear allows for massive torque transfer, similar to a mud lubricated bearing section. Absence of shear across the bearings gives them a higher capacity and makes the entire drive assembly more robust.
Infinite Flex Shaft
For extreme high-torque and infinite life, InFocus offers the Infinite specialty alloy flex shaft. Featured on all RE|FLEX Thru-Tubing Motors.
Adjustable Bend Assembly
Our orbiting adjustable bend assembly features an all-new patent-pending design. Easy to adjust, self-sealing design from 0 - 3 degrees (on 4-3/4" sizes and up).
Fixed or straight bend options available.
Rotor Catch Mechanism
There are TWO Catch Mechanisms in the RE|FLEX 2-7/8” drilling motor.
a.) Lower Catch Mechanism - Reduces the risk of the bit and internal components from being lost downhole in the event of a failure/twist-off in the driveline.
b.) Upper Catch Mechanism (Rotor Catch) - Prevents the tool from being lost downhole in the event of a housing failure below the stator.
Double Shouldered Connections
All internal connections on RE|FLEX motors are double-shouldered, designed with bending and high torque in mind. Two shouldering faces increase the friction of a connection, leading to a higher torque rating and increased durability.
