STAUFF Desiccant Breathers Help Prevent Gear Drive Corrosion

In News by STAUFF

WALDWICK, NJ — STAUFF SDB Gearbox Desiccant Breathers remove corrosive moisture and hazardous vapors.When air flows through a gearbox breather, it can introduce moisture into the system. Temperature fluctuations cause the water in the air to condense, which can cause corrosion on the drive gears and oxidize the oil. This can eventually leads to serious damage of system components and cause expensive downtime.With STAUFF SDB desiccant breathers, air first passes through a drying agent of non-toxic gel to remove moisture and then through a replaceable air filter element with a micron rating of 3 μm to remove particulate matter.As moisture …
