Donaldson Active Reservoir Vent™


The Donaldson Active Reservoir Vent™ (ARV™) is an effective dry air purging system for minimizing watercontamination in fluids. It continuously supplies dry air to reservoirs and other vented components. Slight pressurization of the reservoir head space with dry air prevents ingression of humidity, thereby, eliminating a common source of water contamination. In addition, as dry air sweeps over the surface of the oil, water evaporates and the oil dries to beneficial low levels. Through efficient and user-friendly water contamination control, the ARV’s unique dry air purging system provides a wide range of benefits, including longer component life, extended fluid change intervals, and greater system uptime and reliability.

Do you have challenges with water in oil

  • Is your operation in a high humidity environment?
  • Do you operate around wash water, spray down maintenance, or marine and off-shore environments?
  • Do you get regular condensation in your reservoirs?
    • Are you using a desiccant breather now?
    • How often do you change your desiccant?
    • Do you require frequent service maintenance / short life with your desiccant?
    • Are you concerned that your desiccant is saturated with water until it is too late?

Water is a frequent and damaging contaminant in hydraulic and lubrication systems, and water contamination causes a host of problems including corrosion, component seizure, microbial growth, additive dumping, and accelerated oil oxidation. The ARV will help prevent the chain of damage caused by water contamination.
