Schramm Inspection & Repair

May 31, 2018 by Savannah Adkins

As an industry leader in drill rig repair and refurbishment, Rig Source was excited to work alongside Schramm last week as they performed a complete inspection of a used Schramm T450WS rig. Committed to customer satisfaction, Rig Source facilitated the partnership with Schramm to give this Schramm a thorough once over for OEM certification while also using it as an opportunity to augment our team’s knowledge of Schramm rigs for future projects. 

All new Schramm rigs receive a manufacturer’s certification prior to leaving Schramm’s facility to ensure products comply with industry regulations and are safe to operate. Once a unit is sold, it is then up to the owner to care for and protect the drill rig from receiving modifications in the field. Units can be safely repaired while maintaining structural integrity, but the original structure should never be modified.

Eric Mosley, Director of Aftermarket at Schramm states, “When a rig is sold through a third party, there is always a possibility the original build had been altered during use so it’s imperative the rig be reassessed. Many jobsites require the inspection as a safety precaution prior to operation in the field.”

Being that Rig Source is a third party drill rig provider, we are grateful to work with this manufacturer as safety is always a priority when repairing and refurbishing our used rigs. Schramm’s OEM certification of its T450WS consisted of a complete examination of each rig segment, an engineering review and fluid testing. Upon completion, Schramm personnel performed a test hole as well as other functions to substantiate the rigs functionality. The ability to work directly with Schramm on the inspection process safeguards that both the rig and our work are completed to OEM standards.
