Mud motor bearings

Redesigned for more uptime

Drill string 3D drawing - unsealed motor 04
Mud motor bearings used for oil and gas drilling operate in extremely harsh conditions. Bearing failures are common, causing costly downtime.

SKF applied comprehensive capabilities in failure analysis, materials engineering, testing and design to innovate a redesigned mud motor bearing that delivers a 30% increase in Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF). All bearing components feature special wear-resistant steel and a design that minimizes stresses and optimizes load-carrying capacity.
