FAQ

Let Us Answer Your Questions About Our Horizontal Drilling Services & Products

1How do I know what the flow range is of my downhole motor?
Please select the size of downhole motor for which you are interested in seeing the flow range information.
2How do I know what type of float valve goes with my mud motor?
  • The Lightning Series 4-3/4” mud motor utilizes a 3-1/2 IF float valve.
  • The Lightning Series 6-3/4” mud motor utilizes a 4R float valve.
  • The Lightning Series 7-3/4” mud motor utilizes a 6R float valve.
3How do I figure the motor/bit RPM and rotary RPM for a total RPM?
Off Bottom RPG x GPM Pumped + Rotary Speed = Total RPM Off-Bottom
4How does a Jaguar performance mud motor turn the bit?
Each Jaguar performance mud motor utilizes a rotor and stator that is based on the Moineau principle. Drilling fluid is pumped downhole through the drill pipe and is converted into rotation and torque. This mechanical energy is transferred through the rest of the performance mud motor directly to the drill bit.
5Do you have hard rubber in your stators?

Our stator rubber is slightly harder than standard elastomers. However, it is not the typical “hard rubber” utilized in the industry. Most Jaguar models provide additional torque though extra stages versus harder elastomer.

Jaguar can provide hard rubber at an additional cost, should a customer request it. Considerations should be made for availability and reduced life expectancy of the stator profile.

6How much LCM can your motor handle?
If pre-mixed, anywhere from 25 to 28 lbs. per bbl.
7Do your downhole motors use a sealed bearing pack?
No, Jaguar downhole motors use a mud-lubricated bearing pack.
8What is the stall point of one of your motors?
Jaguar has never had one of our motors stall, even with 1,500 pounds of differential pressure. However, a good rule of thumb is 80 percent of the maximum.
9What is stage in motor?
The number of stages in a motor power section is the number of times the rotor makes a 360 degree revolution within the length of the power section.
