Hydra-Jet Leaky Substandard Swivel

A REAL Hydra Jet Customer Experience

    Good morning.

    I have a Hydra-fag hydraulic drill rig with only 40 hours total time in use, and a catastrophically-failed water swivel. (The quill shaft sheared like a tootsie roll while drilling in packed sand and clay.)

    So far the manufacturer’s response rate to my inquiries post-purchase has been total silence. So, I’m thinking that the only practical solution is to upgrade to a better swivel. I’m very interested to learn what product you may have available that I can adapt for use on my rig.

      Thank you in advance!

Here are progressive photos of the swivel tear-down.

The first photo shows the swivel after removal of the hydraulic motor; the top end of the shaft is missing, having sheared off just below the shaft collar which is the only thing that keeps the shaft from pulling out from the bottom of the swivel housing. I can’t help but wonder if having all of the axial load of the drill string hanging on the two set screws of that top shaft collar contributed to the sudden shearing of the shaft.

The second photo shows the shaft protruding from the top of the swivel after removal of the top pillow block. The packing appears to of a basic hemp-rope variety – nothing fancy (Hydrafab’s marketing materials described a proprietary, patent-pending packing).

Photo three shows the shaft immediately after removal from the swivel housing. It appears to be mild bar stock rather than any particular grade of tool steel. Notice the severe galling where the shaft was in contact with the upper and lower packing. In those two areas the shaft bore has already lost about 1/8” of its diameter. This is amazing considering that the swivel has less than 40 hours total time since new a week earlier, and considering that we checked and adjusted the packing (per Hydrafab’s instructions) every two hours, and greased the zerks every hour. Despite this maintenance attention the swivel leaked constantly. Notice also that there appears to be considerable pitting in the shaft between the two packing points. I’m at a loss to understand how the part could gotten into such condition while sealed inside the swivel!

Photo four again shows the shaft in two pieces, having sheared like a tootsie roll. The keyway (barely visible in this photo) was stretching open radially clockwise, and so the key fell out easily when the split coupler was removed. The bore holes for the set screws of the shaft collar were also elongated axially.

Finally, photo five shows shaft sheared into two pieces. Interestingly, the shaft appears almost as though it were actually a rod within a tube, though I believe it to be a single piece of bar stock.

I hope this helps.

As you can see the Hydra-Jett FAKE tool joints are made of soft china steel that pits only after one 40ft well. Also these connections are not heat treated. without heat treat (9116 process) threads fail and are as soft as wax. Also thread type are not a oil field tapered API thread, so drill pipe can unscrew easy and fall in bore hole. Read ebay feedback, several people say how on first hole they lost pipe and bits in hole. This is why. Say no To toy Rigs and TOY FAKE TOOL JOINT PIPE. Also in picture notice the already broken china swivel bearing housing.

Yet another Hydra-Jett Rig being refurbished after a catastrophic failure
