Des-Case HydroGuard® breathers uniquely feature an expansion chamber and internal check valves that create a nearly-sealed system. Designed specifically for steady-state operations with minimal temperature fluctuations, these breathers provide excellent protection in continuous duty applications.
Sizing & Applications
Please Note: This is intended as a general guideline for sizing only; other considerations, such as: humidity level, frequency of air flow, ambient temperatures, and chemical compatibility are very important in sizing a breather properly. Larger applications and special circumstances typically require the most thorough analysis. Please contact Ecochem Pumps for assistance in sizing a breather.
– Steady-State Operations
– High Humidity
– Low Flow Applications
How it works
As wet, contaminated air is drawn through the unit, multiple 3-micron polyester filter elements remove solid particulate while the color-indicating silica gel extracts moisture. The diaphragm allows for expansion/contraction of the air within the casing as a result of temperature variations during steady-state operations. When air is expelled from the container, the top foam pad prevents oil mist from contacting silica gel or entering the atmosphere.
A pink breather means it has done its job keeping moisture out of your lubricants. Time to replace the breather with a new one.
– Removes moisture in the headspace of equipment
– Eliminates rust-forming condensation
– Prevents sludge deposits and water-contaminated oil
– Prevents contamination ingress
– Provides longer lubricant life
– Reduces wear and tear on equipment, prolongs life
