Your reservoirs perform best with clean, dry air.  Moisture is a continuous threat. Its presence in lubricants, fuels, and hydraulic fluids creates a host of problems including rust, additive depletion, viscosity changes, oxidation and sludge formation.av_01

Desiccant breathers are designed to replace the breather cap or air filter on gear boxes, hydraulic fluid reservoirs, bulk storage tanks, oil drums, oil-filled transformers and other fluid reservoirs. Desiccant breathers adsorb water from the air before it enters your fluid system and remove particulate contaminants as small as 2 microns.

Look for:

  • Integrated check valve technology
  • Replacement cartridges reduce replacement costs
  • Material contraction that is the most chemical-, temperature-, and impact-resistant combination casing on the market.
  • Isolation check valve, which isolates the adsorbent from exhaust air to lengthen service life of the desiccant while also protecting it from volatile and splashing fluids.
  • An integrated compound vacuum / pressure gauge feature is a true-life accurate indicator of filter conditions.
  • Stacked cartridges extend the life of breathers even further. This proprietary feature lengthens the service life, reducing cost and maintenance intervals.
