Breathers and vents attach to a container or reservoir in a lubrication system to relieve built-up heat and pressure and keep the containers or reservoirs at a neutral pressure, which prevents leaks and blow-outs. Breathers also allow fresh air into the container while keeping dirt, water, and other contaminants out. Use desiccant breathers and desiccant vents on large storage tanks, oil drums, gearboxes, hydraulic reservoirs, and other lubrication containers or reservoirs.
These protected vents offer a labyrinth air path that restricts entry of dirt and moisture into the reservoir or gearbox.
Protected Vent, sorted by Thread Size, custom
These desiccant breathers keep damaging moisture and particulate contamination out. Silica gel absorbs moisture inside the equipment with a color indicator to show when replacement is needed. Dual, antistatic 2 micron filter system collects airborne particulates to reduce sludge buildup in the fluid reservoir. Bi-directional air flow allows air in and out as fluid level changes or differential pressures occur. Expelled air backflushes the particulate filter to help prolong the life of the breather.

Relief/Filler Vent Plug
Dual-purpose relief/filler vent plugs can be used for gearbox housings and bearings to eliminate pressure. Automatic reset for continuous duty. Plated steel and brass construction.
Relief/Filler Vent Plug, sorted by Thread Size, custom
These vent plugs allow sealed pressure systems to vent off excess pressure as heat in the system builds up. Air pressure is allowed back into the system as the system cools. For use in hydraulic reservoirs and tanks.

These filter vents relieve excessive pressure from gearboxes. The 40 micron filter element can be removed easily for cleaning.
Filter Vent, sorted by Thread Size, custom
Allows excess pressure to vent as heat builds up with these pressure vacuum breathers. As the system cools, outside pressure is also allowed back in. 20 micron bronze filter keeps dirt from entering the system.
