Breather Desiccator

Description

Breather Desiccator is a simple, effective and compact solution for providing protection against pressure differentials and minimizing moisture levels. The cartridge of breather desiccant can be combined with a two-way valve or valve/humidity indicator breather, which helps in accomplishing both. According to the requirements, the clients can pair a customized desiccant cartridge with various breather valves.

Desiccators give protection to the electric, telecommunication, electro-optic, optical, computer and other equipment against dampness and contamination. The humidity indicator integrated into these desiccators helps in monitoring saturation and provides an indication when the breather needs replacement of cartridge or desiccant change. When the breather desiccant is dry, it is blue. After it absorbs the maximum amount of moisture, it turns pink.

The breather desiccators use either a molecular sieve or silica gel as an absorbing agent. It significantly reduces the incoming moisture level or exiting moisture to suitable levels. The use of molecular sieve as a desiccant helps in maintaining a low level of relative humidity. It is ideal for use with susceptible equipment where enclosures are subject to operate at lower temperatures and condensation of water vapours should not occur.
