Desiccant Breather removes damaging moisture from air.

Press Release Summary:



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.

The Affordable Solution to Remove Moisture: Watchdog EX Series Breathers



PEWAUKEE, WI - In certain extreme operating environments such as a paper mill or in food processing where regular steam cleaning occurs, the humidity level far exceeds normal industrial environments. In these situations, lubricants and other fluids stored in tanks and reservoirs need the protection of a desiccant breather even more. However, small temperature variations draw in the humid air and unnecessarily reduce the life of the breather. The Watchdog® EX Series Breathers for extreme humidity applications incorporate two check valves, one to control airflow into the protected reservoir and one to control airflow out. This prolongs the life of the desiccant by allowing the air to flow through the breather only when needed to protect the integrity of the tank. Unlike a membrane system, which does not allow internally generated gases and contaminants to exit the system, the Watchdog EX Breather offers all of the advantages of breathing air in and out of the tank while removing water vapor and solid particles before they contaminate the fluid.
