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

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.
