Slickline Guidelines

To maximize the life of your CWI GD™-SUPA® SLICKLINE follow these guidelines:

  • Confirm the wire is suitable for the expected well conditions. CWI experts can help you to determine that.
  • Use a Vernier Calliper to check the wire OD.
  • Use new packing in the stuffing box and change the wire guides if they show signs of excessive wear.
  • Use correct sized sheaves (rule of thumb - sheave diameter = 120 x wire OD.)
  • Always lubricate the wire when running into the well.
  • Never exceed the maximum allowed wire tension. This will be set at a maximum of 60% of the breaking load reported on your CWI issued test certification.
  • Clean the wire pulled from the well; use a wireline wiper to remove well fluids.
  • Always update the wire logbook with the wire cut off and data from the operation.
