Rotating Pump Through Stuffing Box

Our Rotating Pump Through (RPT) stuffing box is the ideal solution for underground, up-hole and pump-in drilling operations. When pumping wireline equipment, the RPT provides three distinct advantages over other stuffing boxes. Due to its two-part construction, the rod string can be turned slowly during pumping of the overshot and retrieval of the inner tube assembly. This ability to slowly rotate the rods becomes an important feature when drilling in clay or swelling grounds where drill rods can become stuck in the hole and helps prevents delays or shutdowns in operations.


The RPT does not require clean wireline cable, so in the case of broken wirelines, the cable can be crimped or spliced without problem. This ability to save old cables saves time and money. The RPT stuffing box fits most drilling rod sizes with a design that allows for quick and easy changeover to other rod diameters. A simple change of the adaptor sub is all that is required.


  • Keeps drill rods moving to avoid getting stuck in the hole
  • Allow broken cables to be saved by wireline splicing
  • Easy size changeover to other drilling sizes

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.
