In severe conditions, random wound motor failures are caused by a combination of several destructive factors:

  • High VFD voltage spikes
  • Excessive Top Drive vibration
  • Rain and contamination (weather conditions)
  • Random windings (weaker than form wound)
  • Over heating

That’s why we designed and built the first heavy duty form wound 400 horsepower top drive motor with a better designed and engineered optional cleaning motor blower.

Gulf Electroquip DRILLMAX motors satisfy a wide range of applications within the oilfield industry.  The DRILLMAX400 motor was developed to meet required specifications of the IEC 60034.1 standards.

We listened to drillers and built a 400HP Top Drive Motor that works better and lasts longer.
