Posted on

Casing scrapers are tools reserved for cleaning the inside of inner wall casings. They're effective, but in order to remain so, proper maintenance year-round is required. You'll be pleased with your maintenance on this special cleaning tool by taking this advice and running with it.

Use Them the Correct Way

A pretty straightforward way to maximize the lifespan of a casing scraper for inner wall casings is to simply use it correctly. There are protocols in place that you should go over well before you start using this scraper for real.

Some common things you'll want to get down is how to insert the casing scrapper in casings, the motions you need to use when cleaning around inside, and how much force you need to apply to the scraper. If you get these things down, you can properly maintain this device and look forward to many years of optimal cleaning effectiveness. 

Always Dissemble Before Cleaning

Cleaning this scraper goes a long way in its lasting. It should take place each time this scraper is used, but before you clean, it's a good idea to completely disassembled the scraper.

You'll then be able to access every part that has collected dirt, grime, and rust throughout your cleanings. Disassembling the scraper also makes cleaning easier to complete because you don't have to move large sections by hand each time you reach a different area. 

Inspect Parts Prior to Cleaning

After your casing scraper is completely disassembled, you want to inspect every part before you begin cleaning it. You can then take an effective inventory of part conditions, including the blades, shafts, springs, and other integral components that affect how these scrapers work.

Stay aware of every part's condition and highlight possible signs of damage so that you don't forget to have the part looked at by a professional.

You want to have appropriate repairs carried out before assembling the scraper back together. Then once issues are taken care of, you can put components back in their proper position and go about your scraping operations as normal. 

If you rely on an inner wall casing scraper quite often, you'll be in a great position to use this tool for a long time properly if it's maintained. As long as you focus on the right parts and understand what maintenance steps to perform, this tool will continue working as it should on different oil well casings.
