Extreme XD Breathers

"Seventy five percent of hydraulic system failures are caused by contaminated fluid"
In any reservoir containing a fluid, air is breathed in and out as operating temperatures change, or as a tank is filled and emptied. The problem with a simple breather cap is that it allows abrasive contaminants and water to enter the tank.
The LSM XD Breather is a unique, patented air filter and water vapour removal system. The units are inexpensive and simple to install. They eliminate the problems that result from contaminated air.
Benefits with LSM Breather Technology
- Elimination of water contamination of the oil or other fluids
- Elimination of rust and corrosion inside the container
- Increased oil and filter life
- Reduced abrasive wear, down-time, and repair costs
- Improved lubricant performance
- Eliminates chemical reactions, or spoilage
- More reliable equipment performance
Designed for Severe Operating Conditions:
The XD Breather is heavy duty and incorporates the best in breather technology, integrating a solid standpipe design with phenomenal performance for higher vibration applications. Rated to 150 DegC, it can also stand up to higher temperature requirements.
Some of the key features of the LSM-XD6- HD Breathers:
- Automotive grade molded housing for increased vibration resistance.
- Three layers of protection to 0.3μ.
- Water-blocking filter media prevents free water from entering breather.
- Airflow rating to 25 scfm at 1 psid for standard variant.
- Adaptable, 1.5” female threaded connection.
- Design allows partial regeneration of desiccant.
- Clear windows for easy system monitoring.
- Color-changing silica gel changes from blue to pink when breather needs replacing.
- Upgrading to a Hydroguard XD incorporates an optional check valve system, extending product life even further.
