Desiccant Air Breathers

Built to allow you to closely control fluid system contamination. They replace the breather cap or air filter on hydraulic fluid reservoirs, bulk storage tanks, gear boxes, oil-filled transformers, oil drums, and other fluid reservoirs.

Desiccant Air Breathers will provide protection from moisture and contaminants for a variety of fluid reservoirs. The desiccant air breather operates by adsorbing the moisture and contaminants before it enters your fluid system. The silica gel color will indicate when it’s spent, by turning from a gold to dark green. This allows you to easily monitor your breather for replacement, which provides you with effective continuous protection of your fluid systems.

The presence of moisture in lubricants and hydraulic fluids is a constant concern. Viscosity changes, rust, oxidation, lubricant additive/depletion, and sludge problems are just a few of the problems that can happen when you have moisture. Protect your fluids with contamination control as small as 2 micron.
