Wireline Ductility Testers
To test carbon steel wire, a set length of wire is loaded into the Ductility Tester.
One end is clamped in the fixed clamp and the other in the rotating clamp. The
wire is then twisted using the crank handle. The number of turns before the wire
breaks and the type of fracture indicate whether the wire is good or not.
To test alloy or stainless steel slicklines, the bridge support is used to hold a
small section of line horizontally to the rotating clamp. The piece to be tested
is then ‘piggy backed’ onto the rotating clamp above the other piece and by
bending the test wire through 90 degrees it can be wrapped around the small
section. Ten to twelve rotations should be spooled onto the small horizontal
section of wire using a steady motion. If the line does not break, the wraps are
then inspected for cracks.
The Hunting Wireline Ductility Tester is a simple,
effective tool, designed to be very compact and
convenient to be used anywhere.
The Hunting Wireline Ductility Tester is a simple, effective tool, designed to be
very compact and convenient to be used anywhere. All of the parts, including the
crank handle, pack neatly into the box structure of the tester.
Note: For an accurate measurement of the loading a line will accept before
failure, the Hunting ExCro Wire Tester should be used.

Wireline Operations - Slickline Tools
The Hunting Wireline Ductility Tester offers a simple and effective method
of testing slicklines to ensure that they meet the required standards of
strength and flexibility. Carbon steel, alloy and stainless steel can be
tested by performing either a torsion (twist) test on carbon steel lines or a
wrap test on alloy or stainless steel.
