Desiccant Breathers Protect from Moisture, Particles

Swift-Dri desiccant breathers protect industrial equipment from moisture and particulate that can be drawn into them as they “breathe” during normal operation. As air contracts or expands, or as entering fluid displaces air in a system, outside air is drawn in from the atmosphere. The Swift-Dri breathers block moisture and particles that may be in the air from entering the system. Typical applications are on hydraulic system reservoirs, gearboxes, diesel fuel storage tanks, and pumps. Silica gel desiccant beads attract moisture already in equipment reservoirs during servicing or shut-down, keeping equipment dry. Ten models are available to fit systems up to 600 gal. Optional check valve models are available to help isolate equipment from high humidity ambient conditions, prolonging breather life. Adapters are available to allow connection to most equipment.
