| Diedrich Drill offers two
versatile styles of water swivels to handle a variety of drilling requirements. Either
style of water swivel provides a water tight rotating joint for the pumping of pressurized
water to the bottom of the hole.
The Diedrich Drill water swivel
is a side feed swivel with a 1-5/8" or 2" Hex pin connection. The heat treated
stem on the durable water swivel allows for better wear surfaces. O.D. grinding of the
bearing surfaces assures proper bearing fit and concentricity.
The Top Mount Water Swivel is
the second type offered by Diedrich Drill. This swivel features a top mount, gooseneck
design for multiple use. It also features a single row ball bearing for ease in rotation.
It may be used with all sizes of drill rod when drilling with water and may be used with
larger size rod when used with mud.
Both water swivels provide
adjustable packing and replacement of packing with a minimum of effort or down time. As
with other Diedrich Drill products, our water swivels are in stock and can usually be
shipped same day.
