The interior check valves on the Ventguard™ breather virtually isolate equipment from surrounding contaminants.
Limited wash-down applications (the Ventguard™ may spend more quickly in a frequent wash-down situation due to the lack of the bladder)
Infrequent cycle applications
Applications in which the headspace is much larger than the Hydroguard™ breather bladder can maintain
How it works
As wet, contaminated air is drawn through the unit, multiple 3-micron polyester filter elements remove solid particulate and the color-indicating silica gel extracts moisture. When air is expelled from the container, the top foam pad prevents oil mist from contacting silica gel or entering the atmosphere. The breather is outfitted with a resilient nylon standpipe and a clear polycarbonate body which allows for easy monitoring of the high-contrast silica gel.
