Turbo Scout® DS Turbo Scout® DS

Turbo Scout® DS Steerable Motor Technology

Turbo Scout drilling motors have established a solid reputation in North America shale drilling for strength and reliability. They are designed mechanically stronger than your average drilling motor, enabling them to handle higher torque and increased WOB.

The Turbo Scout DS motor incorporates a second touchpoint to the wellbore to assist with steering in conventional drilling. The bearing assembly can be selected based on the drilling application utilizing an innovative interchangeable bottom-end platform. Diamond Mud Lubricated, Ball & Race Mud Lubricated, and Oil Sealed motors are available.  Our motor technology is patent protected.

Turbo Scout motors are OEM compatible for all configurations, and motor component parts can be customized for your specific needs. Because they are designed and manufactured in-house, cradle to grave traceability is available on all parts. Our motors are engineered, built, and serviced at the same facility.
