Moisture, dirt and particulates are continuous threats to the cleanliness of any contained fluids and the most common form of contamination is from the air. Desiccant breathers absorb the moisture from the air before it has a chance to enter fluid systems.
Removing particulates down to 2 micron these desiccant breathers are able to help prevent contamination and:
- Prolong fluid life and time between changes
- Increase machine productivity
- Reduce maintenance costs
- Control expensive downtime
Air Sentry® Z-Series breathers are designed for applications where space is limited or air flow requirements are below 5 cfm.
The Z-Series is typically used on gearboxes and low fluid volume applications where mounting space is limited or where a larger breather won’t fit without remote mounting. A good example of where the Z134 model is used, is the lubrication storage system Lustor.
The Z134 model uses 100% silica gel for moisture absorption.
The Z134 also features a 2 micron solid particle filter with airflow ratings of 10 cfm.
- Bi-Directional Air Flow.
- Air entering is cleaned and dried.
Water Vapor Adsorbent
The Silica Gel used in Air Sentry® breathers is chemically inert, non-corrosive, and conforms to all regulated toxicity standards. Microscopic pores allow the silica gel to adsorb up to 40% of its own weight.
Air Sentry® is manufactured from rugged ABS plastic and impact-modified Acrylic.
When maximum adsorption is reached, the silica gel turns from gold to dark green to indicate that replacement of the breather is required.
Seals keep moisture from entering the units until they are placed in service. They are easily removed without tools or sharp instruments.
As air is expelled from the tank, it passes through activated carbon which removes oil vapors, fumes and odors.
At Enluse we supply desiccant breather solutions from the full Air Sentry range.
