The progressive cavity pump (PCP) is a positive displacement pump, consisting of a polished helical-shaped rod (rotor) turning inside a helical elastomer (stator). PCP has many advantages, but the pump durability is manly limited by elastomer behavior. At piston pumps (PP) used for drilling mud piston has an elastomer sleeve that also limit the durability. Standards like ISO 15136.1 & 2 for pumps developed by manufactures and users’ committees provides requirements for design, quality design verification etc., but do not define specifically the elastomer for the stator or the metal used for the rotor. Each PCP and PP manufacturer used specific materials at pump construction. The aim of this study was to evaluate the tribological behavior of some elastomers such polybutadiene rubber (BR), polybutadiene acrylonitrile rubber (NBR), polybutadiene acrylonitrile carboxylate (XNBR) and polyamide (PA 6) in couples with hard chromium coated steel, nitride steel and cast iron. Were determined friction coefficients and wear on 2 types of friction couples (plane to plane and shoe to plane) on two tribometers and some mechanical proprieties (Young’s modulus, ultimate tensile strength, elongation, hardness).
