At Drytech, we are happy to announce the launch of our new ZEOZORB desiccant air breathers have been a success. Our breather filters were designed filter out harmful moisture vapors and particulates before it enters a system or equipment.
A recent customer approached us with the problem of excessive moisture contaminating their hydraulic systems. To improve their systems reliability and performance, the equipment manufacturer raised oil operating temperatures from 90°F to 120°F which caused excessive inside their hydraulic systems during shut down periods.
Drytech analyzed and provided a low cost solution for their problem. Contaminants and moisture will enter a system as pressure, temperature, and fluid level changes occur. Often during shut down periods temperatures will decrease drastically causing moist wet air to be ingested into a system. The simple solution was to provide an air breather filter to filter out moisture and particulates before it enters a system, however selecting the correct breather filter is crucial. The most important question to ask is what environment is the breather filter being used in, and in most cases where hydraulic equipment is being used, the environment is very hot and humid. Due to the application being in a hot and humid environment, we immediately ruled out a standard silica gel air breather filter their performance is very limited at higher temperatures, above 80°F. Therefore we use our unique ZEOLITE desiccant which provides maximum adsorption performance in all temperature and environmental conditions.

The customer has been using several ZEOZORB desiccant air breathers for the past 6 months and has taken oil test samples every month since inception. There has been no water in any of their samples since our ZEOZORB desiccant air breathers have been in use.
Drytech ZEOZORB desiccant air breathers protect lubricants, oils, fuels, and other liquids from contamination due to moisture and particulate. Our breathers can be used on a variety of applications with varying tank or reservoir sizes as well as flow rates. Some common applications include, 55 gallon drums, 330 gallon totes, hydraulic reservoirs, fuel storage tanks, gearboxes and much more.
