What is a DES-CASE Desiccant Breather?

What is a Des-Case Desiccant Breather? Des-Case Desiccant Breathers are a vital step in oil contamination control and the first line of defence against lubricant contamination. Studies have shown 50-70% of lubricant contamination can come from outside the equipment.

As most machines are designed to 'breathe', protecting the source of airflow from moisture and particulate contamination is vital. Des-Case Breathers attack the source of contamination, making the products an affordable and cost-effective solution to extend lubricant life and to increase equipment productivity.


How it works?

Des-Case Desiccant Breathers replace the standard dust cap or OEM breather cap on equipment, incorporate a high capture-efficiency filter to help sustain desired cleanliness levels by removing even minute particulate matter. They also create low relative humidity levels in the headspace, making condensation and absorption by the lubricant unlikely. When a system is properly fitted with a breather containing drying and filtration media, the contaminant ingression is greatly reduced.


The key benefits of Des-Case Desiccant Breathers include:

  • Removes moisture in the headspace of equipment.
  • Eliminates rust-forming condensation.
  • Prevents sludge deposits and water-contaminated oil.
  • Prevents contamination ingress.
  • Provides longer lubricant life.
  • Reduces wear and tear on equipment, prolongs life.




Every Des-Case Breather has been designed to work in a wide variety of industries and applications, using quality, rugged materials and innovative designs in technology.
