DES-CASE (DC-XD-6) Extreme Duty Breather


Product Description:
DES-CASE (DC-XD-6) Extreme Duty Breather
Every element of DES-CASE’S Extreme Duty Disposable Breathers has been designed to take contamination control to a whole new level, standing up to a wide variety of applications in challenging environments. DES-CASE Extreme Duty Breathers attack the cause of contamination, keeping dirt and water where it belongs – out of your equipment.
As wet, contaminated air is drawn through the unit, multiple 0.3 micron filter elements remove solid particulate and the colour-indicating silica gel extracts moisture. When air is expelled from the container, the top foam pad prevents oil mist from contacting silica gel or entering the atmosphere. The hydrophilic agent is partially reactivated by the dry air passing back through.

Automotive grade housing and solid standpipe design offer increased vibration resistance and temperature range
Three layers of protection to 0.3 micron absolute
Internal check valve system
The breather is outfitted with a rugged housing and an integrated standpipe, allowing for decreased oil misting while offering improved vibration resistance. Visual indicator windows show the desiccant as it changes colour, indicating that the breather should be replaced. Check valves keep out ambient humidity while the system is at rest.
