Reamer Repairs and Inspection

Reamer Repairs and Servicing

We provide repair and refurbish services for all Reamers (including Easy Reamers, Ripper Reamers, Rock Reamers, Fly-Cutter and Compaction Reamers), even the ones our competitors have built. Everything is serviced in-house from machining to welding and Tungston Chip Coating. We also carry out sub repairs and replacement to suit the variety of OEM Machines.

Testing

To be certain of operation of all tools and equipment, we provide troubleshooting, inspection, reporting, recommendations, replacement and repairs for a variety of reamers.

A worn thread on your reamer usually means that there is a high possibility of failure, especially under high loads which can result in the back reamer tearing off from the drill string. This usually happens when it is half way under the highway that is being drilled and can lead to expensive repair work and sometimes requires abandonment of expensive tooling and product if the failure occurs under critical infrastructure like a highway or under a river where excavation is not possible.

For this reason, it is always important to have a mechanism to change out this quick connect thread once it wears, to ensure good connection is always available, especially on critical bores. With many reamers this is not an option as the thread is part of the total reamer and not usually removable.

Our Inspection Process

We perform a comprehensive inspection of each and every bit before an estimate is given to ensure your bit is repaired completely. We do not just replace cutters. We make sure that your bit is ready for whatever formation you need to drill through.

Repairing Worn Threads

A worn thread on your reamer usually means that there is a high possibility of failure, especially under high loads which can result in the back reamer tearing off from the drill string. This usually happens when it is half way under the highway that is being drilled and can results in expensive repair work and sometimes requires abandonment of expensive tooling and product if the failure occurs under critical infrastructure like a highway or under a river where excavation is not possible.

The other advantage of this system is that you can easily adapt reamers between different machines and systems. Well-built reamers can be very expensive to purchase, so having the ability to swap reamers between different machines just by changing out an inexpensive saver-sub can provide a very cost effective solution.
