Desiccant Breathers protect against contaminant ingress.

August 29, 2013

Delivering long-term protection, ZEOZORB desiccant breathers prevent contaminants from entering industrial equipment as pressure, temperature, or fluid level changes occur. Maximum protection of industrial equipment and fluid systems is accomplished by preventing entry of moisture and particulate contamination. Products are designed to replace breather caps or air filters on fluid storage tanks, gear boxes, transformers, hydraulic fluid reservoirs, oil drums, and industrial equipment. Read More

Desiccant Breather removes damaging moisture from air.

March 29, 2006

Suited for extreme humidity applications, Watchdog® EX Series Breathers incorporate 2 check valves: one to control airflow into protected reservoir, and one to control airflow output. Process prolongs life of desiccant by allowing air to flow through breather only when needed to protect integrity of tank. This provides advantages of breathing air in and out of tank while removing water vapor and solid particles before they can contaminate fluid. Read More

Test System measures air breather effectiveness.

March 3, 2006

Taking dirt ingression rate and operating environment into consideration, Air Breather Check(TM) (ABC) test system notifies users when it is time to change air breathers. Tester is calibrated in inches of water and will activate, providing visual indication, when vacuum equivalent of 15 in. of water is reached. ABC can be reset by push of button and used repeatedly. Compact unit includes adapter with splash guard and is suited for various installations. Read More
