Disposable Air Purifying Breathers

Fluid contamination is the root cause of most hydraulic system failures. Controlling contamination in the air a system breathes is critical. The synergy of Hy-Pro fluid filter elements and Hy-Dry desiccant breathers yields fluid clarification and a healthy hydraulic system.

FEATURES, BENEFITS, ADVANTAGES

Retro-fit existing
reservoirs
With adaptors a Hy-Dry breather can be installed on virtually any existing reservoir. (Versatility)
Water adsorption
Eliminate water contamination from reservoir ingression Minimize rust and acid corrosion. Reduce component wear. Reduce maintenance costs. Prolong fluid life. Reduce oil oxidation. Enhance lubricity of fluids.
Chemically inert
Gold silica gel is chemically inert, non-toxic, non-deliquescent and non -corrosive. (chemically inert)
Disposable
Materials meet U.S Pharmacopoeia XXI Class VI toxicity requirements. Hy-Dry contains no metal components. (easy disposal)
Color indicator
When maximum adsorption is reached Hy-Dry will turn from Gold to Green as an indicator to replace it. (easy condition indicator)
Bi-directional air flow
 
Air inhaled is cleaned and dried, and oil is removed from exhausted air .
 
Activated carbon
As air is exhausted from the tank activated carbon removes oil vapor, fumes, and odors. (clean exhaust)
