Extreme Durability for Extreme Environments

D - Series Motors 


DuraCORE Series Oil & Gas Drilling Motors

DuraCORE™ motors are Windings latest innovation in providing downhole drilling motor solutions for the oil & gas industry.  Thanks to a partnership with W.L. Gore & Associates™, in an effort to create a more durable and resilient motor for the oil & gas industry, Windings engineers were able to utilize GORE Magnet Wire.  GORE Magnet Wires ability to survive downhole temperatures up to 260­° C, pressure up to 30Kpsi, and resistance to hydrolysis and flood events.  What they created is, one of the most rugged, resistant and reliable electric motors on the market today, made possible due to GORE Magnet Wire’s revolutionary insulation, and superior environmental performance in contrast to the industry standard polyimide insulated magnet wire.

GORE Magnet Wire v.s. Polyimide Wire

When we set out to design the ideal motor for downhole applications, we knew standard polyimide wire would not be sufficient for these extreme environments.  Consider the capabilities of DuraCORE with GORE Magnet Wire.

Rugged: Heat & Pressure don't frighten us

  • Up to 260° C temperatures

  • Up to 30 Kpsi

Resistant: Hard conditions?  Bring it.

  • Waterproof and purposefully designed to withsand flood events

  • Chemical and oil resistant

Reliable: Motors ready to go the distance

  • Field tests confirmed motors with GORE Magnet Wire operate 10x longer than motors with regular polyimide wire

  • Every DuraCORE Motor goes through our rigorous multipoint inspection before it ships.

High Temperature

Unmatched Performance

Tested and outlasted the industry standard at 200° C, GORE Magnet Wire able to survive downhole at temperatures of 260°

High Pressure

Unparalleled Durability

Tested against the industry standard downhole motor, industry standard failed at 22 Kpsi, DuraCORE motors operate at 30 Kpsi


Resistance to Hydrolysis​

Ability to survive flood events, and an exceptional resistance to corrosive chemicals & oils


D-Series Pre-Engineered Motors

As a leader in custom motors for over 50 years, we can build your motor with GORE Magnet Wire to deliver the benefits of DuraCORE.  We can also help you optimize your custom motor or our engineering team can help you design one with GORE Magnet Wire technology!

Custom Motors

To reduce lead time and the risk of downhole failures, we bring you the DuraCORE D-Series.  Pre-engineered standard downhole motors available in 3 sizes, designed to save you time & money

The DuraCORE Difference

What separates Windings DuraCORE™ Series from the competition? Windings engineers utilized W.L. Gore & Associates new GORE Magnet Wire in crafting our DuraCORE™ Series Motors. Proven to be more durable than the industry standard downhole motors, DuraCORE can withstand a combination of high pressure and high temperatures with a superior resistance to hydrolysis.
