Mud motor also called Drilling Motor refers to a Progressive Cavity Positive Displacement Pump placed in the Drill string to provide additional power to the bit while drilling. The PCPD Pump uses Drilling Fluid to create eccentric motion in the power section of the motor which is transferred as concentric power to the drill bit. The Mud Motor uses different rotor and stator configurations to provide optimum performance for the desired drilling operation, typically increasing the number of lobes and length of power assembly for greater horsepower. In certain applications, compressed air, or other gas, can be used for Mud Motor input power. Normal rotation of the bit while using a Mud Motor can be from 60 rpm, to over 100 rpm.

GN mud recycler and mixing unit can match with Ditch Witch HDD rig and Vermeer rig according to their required mud flow capacity. The recycled drilling fluids by GN mud recycler and mixing unit are provided to mud motor for charging.

Mud motors are powered by drilling fluid ,the fluid consists of water mixed with bentonite or polymer additives designed to match various soil conditions. The fluid is pumped down through the drill string to the downhole motor, which converts the flow to rotary speed and torque.
