Desiccant breathers are one of the most cost effective methods of protection for contamination control. Breathers are an integral piece to any fluid lubrication, hydraulic system, or storage tank. Breathers provide protection from moisture and particulate contamination in harsh operating environments. The best operations & maintenance practices focus on preventing contaminants from entering their equipment, rather than trying to remove contaminants after damage has already occurred.
As most equipment and machines are designed to “breathe,” protecting the inflow of ambient air is vital for protection and reliable operation. Contaminants and moisture will enter equipment as temperature, pressure, and fluid level changes occur. To prevent contaminants and moisture from entering your equipment, a desiccant breather should be used.
Maradyne desiccant breathers use several layers of high efficiency filters to capture particulates, moisture, and maintain ISO cleanliness codes.
Maradyne’s unique ZEOLITE desiccant blend allows for extremely low relative humidity levels be maintained. Not only do our breathers prevent contaminants and moisture from entering your equipment, but many test results show that Maradyne breathers will actually liberate water from within the fluids or chemicals being stored in the tank simply by having a breather fitted on top of the tank or reservoir. This dynamic is vital to maintain maximum life and performance of the lubricant or chemical being stored.
