i-Broach Mechanical Scale Removal Tool

i-Broach is a rigid and effective mechanical scale removal tool with adjustable cutter rails.


i-Broach™ is a rigid and effective mechanical scale removal tool with adjustable cutter rails. The i-Broach assembly consists of two broach units covering 360° of the wellbore. When jarring downwards, the broach rails are forced into the scale, effectively removing deposits and scale buildup on the tubing wall.

Upon retrieval, the rails are allowed to collapse and no overpull is needed, ensuring a safe and efficient scale removal operation. The i-Broach comes in five different sizes, ranging from 2.1 to 6.5 in. (53.34 to 165.10 mm).


  • Fixed steps and quick adjustment
