Winter Maintenance - Downtime Prevention

The cold months and winter maintenance present new challenges when it comes to keeping manufacturing plants running and avoiding costly downtime. Busy production periods in the run up to Christmas, reduced maintenance staff numbers and the negative impact of cold / adverse weather conditions on plants and machinery can create a number of challenges.

Des-Case 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.


At Neilson Hydraulics, we supply Des-Case Standard Desiccant Breathers (DC-BB, DC-1, DC-2, DC-3 & DC-4). Des-Case Standard breathers provide simple, yet dependable protection from moisture and particulate contamination in lubricants and equipment across multiple industries and applications. These versatile breathers are five times more effective than the leading non-desiccant breathers, providing optimal defense against humidity for your applications.




Do you have enough hydraulic spares to complete your planned maintenance work?
