IsoLogic™ Sensor Technology adds value to any reliability program by detecting and recording spikes in humidity and water ingress. Early detection of system upsets, avoidance of equipment failures and unplanned downtime saves you money, maintains operational efficiency and provides one less headache for you and your organization.
Unlike any breather on the market, IsoLogic has eliminated the subjectivity of color-changing desiccant media, allowing you to know the exact moment your breather is fully spent and should be replaced. Shorten time-consuming, scheduled lube routes by using RFID and Bluetooth technology to collect data on multiple breathers at the same time when syncing them with the IsoLogic app. Decrease the risk of workplace injuries by monitoring breathers installed on remote or hard-to-access equipment. Whether you’re on a plane, in the office or at home, view all breather statuses and trend data on the web platform from anywhere, anytime. All you need is the internet.

Please Note: This is intended as a general guideline for sizing only; other considerations, such as: humidity level, frequency of air flow, ambient temperatures, and chemical compatibility are very important in sizing a breather properly. Larger applications and special circumstances typically require the most thorough analysis. Please contact Des-Case for assistance in sizing a breather.
