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.

By the Numbers
A domed cap allows for better washdown runoff
2–Integrated Nylon Standpipe
The integrated standpipe provides excellent vibration resistance and dissipates impact throughout the unit, eliminating weak points. It also allows even airflow distribution throughout the unit, eliminating inaccurate readings of desiccant saturation.
External ribs on shell to create greater durability and grip when installing or replacing breather
4–Integrated Drip Ring
An integrated drip ring keeps shedding water from entering the vent holes
Easily replaces standard filler/breather cap with multi-fit connection or one of several adapters.
6–Larger, High-Capacity Check Valves
High-capacity check valves allow for increased airflow at low cracking pressure.
Polyester filter element removes airborne contamination to 3-micron absolute. Unique loops allow particles to release during system exhalation, helping to increase breather life.
An enhanced seal eliminates potential for airflow bypass
- Intermittent Operations
- Low-Flow Applications
