ZEOZORB® Desiccant Breathers are used in a variety of different industries which use various types of hydraulic or fluid systems. Hydraulic systems typically consist of 3 major parts, a hydraulic pump, valves to control the flow of oil, and a reservoir to contain hydraulic oil. Hydraulic cylinders and pumps are constantly moving hydraulic fluid through the system, which in turn causes the system to breathe in an out. During this cycle contaminants and moisture will enter a reservoir as pressure, temperature, or fluid level changes occur.
To prevent harmful contaminants and moisture from entering a reservoir, a ZEOZORB® Desiccant Breather should be used. ZEOZORB® Desiccant Breathers ensure maximum protection of industrial equipment and fluid systems by preventing the entry of moisture and particulates. Drytech’s ZEOZORB® Desiccant Breathers also use a unique desiccant medium which out performs the standard Silica Gel breathers used today. Visit our technical page to see how our breathers outperform the industry standard Silica Gel breather.
Contaminants in fluid systems are the primary cause for accelerated component wear and decreased fluid life. Maintaining the quality of fluids and hydraulics is vital to ensure optimal equipment performance and life.
