Swivel, The Key Feature

This Is One Of The Components That Makes Our Drilling Rig Superior To The Others.

Anybody Can Make Claims, We Provide Proof.

The swivel is the heart of the rotary drilling system, it transferes water at high pressure through the drill stem to the drill bit, which cools and lubricates the bit as it drills, and flushes and forces the cuttings up and out of the borehole. Without a large capacity high volume swivel, drilling a well over twenty to thirty feet deep will be very limited, if not impossible. 

We manufacture our own patent pending high volume, weight bearing  swivel. Our swivel is four times larger, and ten times the capacity of these commonly used immitation swivels, as detailed in the pictures below. The water ports on our swivel are four times larger which means much more water volume which is needed to flush the excess mud and cuttings up and out of the borehole. Our swivel is equipped with large heavy duty, easily replaceable, packing type seals which are much more resistant to the abrasive sand and mud cuttings constantly forced through the system, Also, Roller Bearings Keep The Swivel Shaft Supported And Rotating Smoothe And Straight. 

Your Success Is Our Goal 

Water Well Drilling, Geothermal, Core Sampling

This Is A Typical Swivel Setup Found On Some Other Portable Rigs, Hanging Directly From The Transmission Shaft On The Lightweight Aluminum Housing.

We Manufacture The Swivel Shaft From A Solid Tool Steel Bar, Precicely Machined And Balanced .

Our Swivel Transfer Shaft Compared To Theirs, Notice The Port Hole Size Difference.

Their Swivel Breakdown, This Thing Is Not Designed For Water Well Drilling, These Little Plastic And Rubber Seals Deteriorate Quickly When Exposed To Sand And Mud Drilling.

Transformed In Our Machine Shop, From Solid Tool Steel Bar To Precicely Groud Water Swivel Shaft.

Their Swivel Shaft, Port Hole Size Is 3/16 Inch, Very Restrictive

Our Swivel Mounted On Our 13HP Unit, Part Of The Frame Itself, For Maximum Support And Maximum Transfer
