RS++ Reaming Shells

Our RS++ Reaming Shells are reinforced with both natural and synthetic diamonds to allow optimal reaming of the bore hole while maintaining precise gage control. The double plus sign in the name represents the two main features of this exclusive product: the SupraSpherical diamonds and the embedded wear indicator.


+ SupraSphericals for a dynamic surface protection


The RS++ features a reinforced diamond ring surface using natural diamonds and a unique ‘SupraSpherical’ technology of refractory metals imbedded pellets in its matrix. It provides dynamic protection of the surface.


All RS++ reaming shells are leading-edge reinforced with large thermally stable polycrystalline (TSP) diamond pins for better wear pattern control and to maximize diamond volume in high-wear zones.


+ Embedded Wear Indicator Bar


The RS++ also features an embedded Wear Indicator Bar to identify how much life is remaining. This helps to maintain better control of the borehole outside diameter. The Wear Indicator gradually wears away over time, and when it disappears, that is the indication that the reaming shell needs to be replaced.


  • Advanced resistance to wear on the entire surface of diamond ring
  • Available in all sizes, including 6in, 10in and 18in lengths

We are happy to announce that as of August 2, 2021, all Canadian Fordia offices will be making drill rigs available to their customers. In an earlier blog this year, we announced that drill rigs would be available for sale in the USA and that proved to be successful, so Canada will now join the USA in adding drill rigs to their portfolio of drilling equipment for the mineral exploration industry.

The mineral exploration industry has seen a lot of change in the last few years. One of the most common challenges is finding employees. Between the cyclic nature of the industry and the recent pandemic, many experienced drillers have left and replacing them has been difficult for many companies.

At the beginning of the year, we decided to update our popular eGuides so our customers would have the latest and greatest information. We started with our most popular guide on choosing the right core bit and are now in the process of taking each guide and updating its information to represent the many changes that have occurred over the last few years.

Customer service is our priority.
