Des-Case Hydroguard Desiccant Breathers
Desiccant Breather DC-HG-1
The Des-Case Desiccant Breather DC-HG-1 breathers uniquely feature an expansion chamber and internal check valves that as a result create a nearly-sealed system. Designed specifically for steady-state operations with minimal temperature fluctuations, these breathers provide excellent protection in continuous duty applications.
- Removes moisture in the headspace of equipment
- Eliminates rust-forming condensation
- Prevents sludge deposits, also water-contaminated oil
- Prevents contamination ingress
- Also provides longer lubricant life
- Reduces wear and tear on equipment, therefore prolongs life
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.
SEEING PINK? A pink breather means it has done its job keeping moisture out of your lubricants. As shown above. Time to replace the breather with a new one accordingly.
