Xclude™ Standard Breather
Basic protection from moisture and particulate contamination in lubricant and equipment

This breather unit replaces the standard dust cap or OEM breather cap on equipment. As air is drawn into equipment through the breather, the layered filter elements remove particulates while the desiccant beads strip harmful moisture. While in service or during shutdown, the desiccant beads attract moisture from inside the equipment reservoir, actively drying the equipment.
