Rebuildable Steel Breathers

For high-flow or harsh environments

Industry spends millions of dollars annually treating the negative effects of contamination caused by wet, dirty air. Contaminated lubricating oil and hydraulic fluid results in excess machine wear, production downtime, and repair costs.

Des-Case breathers attack the source of contamination, allowing your equipment and lubricants to run longer and harder.


  • Eliminates rust-forming condensation
  • Prevents sludge deposits and water-contaminated oil
  • Provides longer oil and filter life
  • Reduces wear and tear on equipment, prolongs life


  • Carbon or stainless steel housing
  • Easy-to-replace desiccant bags remove moisture from incoming air, extending fluid and system life
  • Replaceable polyethylene microglass filter prevents particles to 1µ from entering the system

Ideal for ...

  • High-flow applications
  • Harsh environments

How it works

As wet, dirty air is drawn through the unit, the hygroscopic agent extracts moisture and a 1-micron microglass pleated filter element removes solid particulate.

When the air is expelled from the container, the foam pad cleans itself by releasing dirt back into the atmosphere.

The hygroscopic agent is partially reactivated by the dry air passing back through, thereby permitting longer periods between replacing components (or rebuilding).
