WIRELINE OPERATIONS: SLICKLINE TOOLS Slickline Tools Wireline Equipment Catalogue v.3.2 | Slickline Tools 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.

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.
