Des-Case Corporation Introduces DoublePlay(TM) and TriplePlay(TM) Contamination Control Breathers
White House, Tenn.- Des-Case Corporation today announced the extension of its full line breather offering with the launch of the DoublePlay(TM) and TriplePlay(TM). These breathers are ideal for blocking free water and preventing microscopic particles from entering fluid containing reservoirs. The TriplePlay also offers an oil coalescing media which keeps oil mist from entering the work environment.
The DoublePlay and TriplePlay provide the ideal solution for the management of lubricant condition in low humidity applications and continuous operation applications with frequent washdowns. By preventing water droplets from entering the oil reservoir, yet permitting air to escape, the breather lowers the relative humidity inside the reservoir and significantly reduces condensation. Not only do the breathers reduce the dew-point temperature, but they also provide a large surface area and are 99.5% efficient in blocking particles 1 micron and larger, making them ideal for arid, high dust environments. On the TriplePlay, the internal pleated media surface incorporates an oil coalescing layer, which drains any oil droplets back to the reservoir.
Designed with ABS plastic to withstand rugged environments, the lightweight breathers are easily installed and only need to be hand-tightened. The 40 cfm airflow rating is higher than that of a typical desiccant breather. The recommended visual vacuum indicator option actuates when maximum restriction has been reached.
"The addition of these two products helps round out our breather line," said Brian Gleason, president of Des-Case Corporation. "By providing a barrier to free water, accompanied by a higher airflow rating and a large surface area to capture particulate, we extend our reach into some very niche applications."
Privately held Des-Case Corporation designs, manufactures and markets a complete line of contamination control products for a wide range of industries and applications. The company's breathers feature designs unparalleled in the marketplace and are used wherever lubricant life and performance are essential to daily operations. Headquartered in White House, Tenn., the Des-Case and Hydroguard brand of breathers are sold through an international distribution network.
