Conventional air breathers vent the enclosed air in gearboxes but often let oil drip onto nacelle floors. The Oilmiser Vapor Guard prevents such hazards by using a diffuser post inside a sealed aluminum containment chamber. Migrating vapors are dispersed by the diffuser post and condense back into liquid oil. As condensed oil builds, it runs down the diffuser post and collects at the bottom. Oil accumulating in the chamber is uncontaminated and continuously channeled back to the gearbox through “bleed back” holes at the bottom of the diffuser post. The complete diffuser-post assembly is easily removed from the Vapor Guard for inspection and cleaning, then reinstalled for continued vapor control in the nacelle. Diffuser posts come in male pipe sizes from ½ to 1-in. NPT.
