Standard Disposal Desiccant Breathers

The original Des-Case disposable breather. Des-Case breathers proactively prevent ingression of water and particulate contamination through the breather vent by combining the use of two well-known technologies: filtration and desiccant (drying media). The 3-micron filter element prevents particules entry and the desiccant creates relative humidity levels in the headspace which make condensation unlikely.

Hydraulic reservoirs, gearboxes, electrical transformers and lubricated systems are exposed to pollution from particles, condensation, and splashing water; and generate oil mist that represents a hazard for workers.

Des-Case offers a complete line of breathers to treat those problems and optimize the duration of lubricants and production systems.

Desiccant air breathers:

· Design for machines that start and stop and where there is temperature variation.
· Resilient polycarbonate plastic body.
· Airflow : Bi-directional to 700 l/mn.
· Filtration Particles B3=200 (efficiency 74% from 0,5 micron - half micron).
· Water vapor adsorbent, stops condensation, dust and oil fumes.
· Color indicator for easy system monitoring. Changes from blue to pink, from the bottom to the top.
· DES-CASE breathers meet the European requirement printed in the "Manual of decisions for implementation of the sixth and seventh amendments to directive 67/548/EEC on dangerous substances".
· DES-CASE breathers are in conformity with new european regulation REACH.
· Optional pressure valves (45 mbars) can modified from open to closed breather to protect against splash of free water or very aggressive ambiance.

GOOD NEWS for DESCASE breathers end users and for DESCASE products. Dated June 15th 2011, ECHA (European Chemicals Agency, official department of CEE) recognises et confirms:
1. Dichlorure de Cobalt, used in DESCASE breathers as humidity indicator, is the only efficient colour additive that can be used.
2. Use of other chemical colour additive, as do few other is not technically suitable (alternatives to cobalt dichloride - e;g; other metal salts, such as iron or copper salts, as proposed by france did not allow the same range of hulidity indication and therefore these substances were not considered to be technically suitable).
