The paper describes the development of the methods of experimental research on rubber elastomers parameters of mud motors at modeling the conditions of their operation. The specific features of mud motors operation as well as main aggressive agents affecting the state and parameters of elastomers, such as drilling mud type, ambient temperature, and mechanical action of the rotor on the plate of the stator are shown in the paper. Due to described agents, new methods of investigations and new units of experimental bed are developed. The experiments confirmed the relevance of the proposed methodology, with its main advantages - ease of implementation and speed of research.
