Desiccant air breather with added value

SDB-CV desiccant air breathers from Stauff, which remove moisture from the air flowing into the hydraulic container in the event of pressure differences, are equipped with up to 8 non-return valves in both directions (to/from the tank). The 0.01 bar opening pressure prevents permanent flow through the drying agent, thus extending its service life.

The colour of the drying agent changes from red to orange with increasing moisture absorption. This allows the condition of the dehumidifier to be determined easily and quickly – the filter material can be changed as needed, without any great installation expense.

SDB-CV breathers are attached to the container with a threaded connector or an adapter plate and are suitable for a maximum air flow rate of 1.50 m³/min.
