Water Swivel

Water Swivel Lubrication Devices

For drilling in Ceramic, Tile, Stone, Concrete, etc

Diamond drill bits require water to lubricate and cool the drill bit.  There are many ways to lubricate the drilling with water, as explained in our Drilling Tips & Techniques section.  One of the most effective methods and the one used by most professionals is to use a Water Swivel, also know as a Water Swivel Adapter or a Water Feed System

A Water Feed Drill Adapter injects water into the center hole of the drill bit shaft while it is drilling.  The adapter "feeds" water lubrication directly into the center of the bit, the water escapes around the tip and bubbles up around the outside of the hole.  A Water Feed Lubrication System forces water to the tip of the drill bit and also cools the inside and outside of the bit.

A Water Feed Unit is a very effective tool.  However, there are many types of power drill mounts in addition to many types of drill bit mounts.  It is very important to make sure that you get the correct Adapter to match with the specific power drill mount and drill bit mount that are being used.  Additionally, the drill bit must have a water lubrication hole in the bit shank or mount, to allow the Swivel to pass water to the tip.

The picture above shows a drill press with a standard drill chuck.  The drill bit is a DiamondSure Pro-Sintered Diamond Drill Bit, which has a 10mm shaft.  So, the Water Feed device used above is the DX-902 Water Swivel which has a 3/8" shaft to mate with the drill chuck and a 10mm Collet to mate with the 10mm shaft on the drill bits.

Many different Water Feed Swivels are available below to meet the needs of most drilling situations.  The water line used to provide water to the Swivel will vary depending upon each specific drilling application. Permanent drilling stations are usually attached directly to water lines with a drain tub under the drilling area.  A portable Water Feed Bottle, designed for use in temporary drilling applications, is also available in the accessories section of this page. Some customers have even purchased a large 'garden sprayer' locally and attached it to the Water Feed Device.

Each Water Feed Device below has a standard 1/4" Quick-Connect Male fitting to connect to the water supply.  The fitting on the Swivels will mate with a standard Female 1/4" Quick-Connect fitting that is available at most Tool and Hardware stores.  A Female Coupling fitting is also available as an optional item in the accessories section of this page

Some water feed installations also add a small shutoff valve at the water fitting connection, to allow the operator to adjust water flow while drilling.  We have a shutoff valve available below, or many different types of valves are available at local hardware stores.
