Immersion breathers or “free breathers” are installed on enclosed equipment that operates when submerged in water or underwater and subjected to altitude and temperature changes.
Equilibrating Air Pressure
The breathers equalise air pressure while keeping liquid water out of the container or tank. By preventing damages or distortions caused by environmental changes, they maintain the integrity of the container and its contents.
These underwater vents protect the products and equipment within the container from humidity, moisture, and condensation damage. The water-resistant breathers also prevent liquid water intrusion during logistics or import.
Maintaining Container Integrity
Installing submersible breathers is simple, either using the supplied nut lock or screwing them into the container’s threaded boss through a hole. For situations requiring a controlled moisture atmosphere, a humidity absorber with desiccant can be placed on the breather’s backside.
Vent Breathers are low-profile breathers that equalise pressure and remove gases from equipment. They are commonly used on valves or single-acting cylinders and can be installed with minimal protrusion. Vent breathers are a barrier that filters contaminants and protects the equipment from harsh environmental conditions.
Splash Proof Breather
Splashproof breathers protect electronic enclosures and cases from moisture, humidity, and other contaminants. They are made from various materials and can withstand even the most aggressive applications. They can be filled with a desiccant-filled humidity absorber to control inlet moisture if needed.
Mini Immersion Breather
Mini immersion breathers protect against environmental changes, allowing air passage and creating a controlled environment. Desiccant-filled humidity absorbers are fitted on the rear of the breathers, protecting the equipment against humidity and condensation damage.
Immersion Proof Breather
Immersion-proof breathers protect against environmental damage or disruptions, providing a controlled environment, and desiccant-filled humidity absorbers protect equipment against humidity and condensation damage. They can be filled with desiccants to remove moisture from the air entering the equipment or container.
Immersible Breather Desiccator
Immersible breather desiccators protect equipment from underwater overpressure or vacuum buildup, protecting against the impact of water. They come with an additional cartridge for desiccants to absorb any moisture leftover within the equipment. These desiccators keep the equipment dry and protect against temperature and humidity changes.
Drain plugs provide an easy and efficient way to keep equipment and containers safe from external contaminants. Made from quality polycarbonate material, they feature high performance, stability, and resistance to weak acids, ethers, and alcohols and are easy to fix and use. They can operate from 40ºC to 70ºC and prevent the entry of insects, contaminants, and other foreign substances.
