Desiccant Air Breathers SDB

Characteristics

Combination of air breather and water removal filter

When a reservoir or gearbox breathes, air containing water vapor is ingested into the system. Temperature fluctuations will cause this water vapor to condense which can speed up the oxidation of the fluid and lead to damage in the system. While inhaling, Desiccant Air Breathers SDB first dry the air as it passes through the drying agent. The air then passes through a 3 μm air filter element to remove any solid contamination particles. As moisture is absorbed, the drying agent will gradually change from red to orange. When it is orange, replace the drying agent. If required, an optional visual indicator gives an indication of the status of the air breather. With the moisture absorbed, the oxidation process can be decreased and the lifetime of the oil and the entire machinery will be extended. Desiccant Air Breathers SDB can also be re-fitted with a layer of active carbon (1/3) and a layer of regular drying agent (2/3) for vapor filtration.

Desiccant Air Breathers SVDB

Characteristics

Combination of air breather and water removal filter

When a reservoir or gearbox breathes, air containing water vapor is ingested into the system. Temperature fluctuations will cause this water vapor to condense which can speed up the oxidation of the fluid and lead to damage in the system. Desiccant Air Breathers SVDB are the light-weight alternative to the proven SDB series, offering an almost identical filtration and absorption performance. While inhaling, Desiccant Air Breathers SVDB also first dry the air as it passes through the drying agent. The air then passes through a 10 μm coarse filter to remove any solid contamination particles. As moisture is absorbed, the drying agent will gradually change from red to orange. When it is orange, replace the entire unit. If required, an optional visual indicator gives an indication of the status of the air breather. With the moisture absorbed, the oxidation process can be decreased and the lifetime of the oil and the entire machinery will be extended.

Features

  • Light-weight alternative to the SDB series
  • Available in 2 different sizes
  • Diameter of Ø94 mm / Ø3.70 in
  • Filled with drying agent (non-toxic ZR gel grain)
  • Connection: Female BSP thread (ISO 228) in Plastic
    • Please note that neither the air filter element nor the drying agent can be replaced when saturated.

Accessories / Spare Parts

  • Connection adaptor (see page E29 for details)
    • for all sizes: TBA-075-B
  • Adaptor plate
    • for all sizes (in conjunction with adaptor plate only): AP-1
  • Visual contamination indicator
    • for all sizes (in conjunction with adaptor plate only): FM

Desiccant Air Breathers SDB-CV

Characteristics

Combination of air breather and water removal filter with integrated check valves to increase the lifetime of the desiccant material; particularly suited for gearbox applications. When a reservoir or gearbox breathes, air containing water vapor is ingested into the system. Temperature fluctuations will caus this water vapor to condense which can speed up the oxidation of the fl uid and lead to damage in the system. While inhaling, Desiccant Air Breathers SDB-CV first dry the air as it passes through the drying agent. The air then passes through a 3 μm air fi lter element to remove any solid contamination particles. Thanks to the spring-loaded check valves with an opening pressure of 0,01 bar / .15 PSI, the drying agent will be isolated from the atmosphere unless inhaling or exhaling, which increases the lifetime of the Desiccant Air Breather SDB-CV as well As moisture is absorbed, the drying agent will gradually change from red to orange. When it is orange, replace the drying agent. If required, an optional visual indicator (not for the SDB-061-CV) gives an indication of the status of the air breather. With the moisture absorbed, the oxidation process can be decreased and the lifetime of the oil and the entire machinery will be extended. Desiccant Air Breathers SDB-CV can also be re-fi tted with a layer of active carbon (1/3) and a layer of regular drying agent (2/3) for vapor fi ltration.

Features

  • Available in 4 different sizes with diameter of Ø68 mm / Ø2.68 in, Ø100 mm / Ø3.94 in or Ø130 mm / Ø5.12 in
  • Equipped with spring-loaded check valves in opposing directions with an opening pressure of 0,01 bar / .15 PSI
  • Refi llable with drying agent (non-toxic ZR gel grain) or a mix of drying agent and active carbon
  • Replaceable air fi lter element SGB
  • Connection: Male BSP thread (ISO 228)
  • Please note: Using an Desiccant Air Breather with integrated spring-loaded check valves may cause an under or over pressure of 0,01 bar / .15 PSI inside the system, which does not cause any problems for the majority of gearboxes and reservoirs. In case of doubt, please consult your equipment supplier.
