Desiccant breathers offer protection for both equipment and stored fluids from harmful moisture and contamination. The breather’s desiccant filter works to remove particulates from the air as it’s drawn into the equipment, while the desiccant beads absorb moisture and actively dry the equipment, even during shutdowns.

Breathers filled with silica gel are effective in preventing issues such as viscosity changes, rust and oxidation, sludge problems, and lubricant depletion in hydraulic systems, storage tanks, and fluid lubrication. In an industrial setting, desiccant breathers can effectively maintain optimal performance and extend the lifespan of stored chemicals, lubricants, or other fluids.
