The new Des-Case Extended Series breathers combines the materials, design, and high air flow of our Standard breathers with the check-valves of our hybrid breathers, plus a new oil mist reducing feature and more than double the desiccant!
It works like this: As wet, contaminated air is drawn through the unit, multiple 3-micron polyester filter elements remove solid particulate and the color-indicating silica gel extracts moisture. When air is expelled from the container, the top foam pad prevents oil mist from contacting silica gel or entering the atmosphere. Also, the breather is outfitted with a resilient nylon standpipe and polypropylene oil mist reducer to allow oil mist to coalesce and drain back into the reservoir, rather than compromising the desiccant. Six high quality, umbrella check valves underneath the unit isolate equipment from ambient conditions prolonging breather life and protecting system integrity.
Des-Case breathers are state-of-the-art in design and function, and are the ideal choice for assuring maximum machine performance. Our Extended Series Desiccant breathers offer these cost-saving benefits:
- Elimination of water-contaminated oil, which leads to additive stripping
- Elimination of rust-forming condensation
- Elimination of sludge deposits
- Less abrasive particles to prolong machine operating life
- Longer oil and oil filter life
