Customised Desiccant Breathers

Every element of Des-Case's Secondary Agent Breathers have been designed to work in a wide variety of industries. Des-Case offers several secondary agent media options that prevent fumes and other contaminants from entering equipment. The media in Secondary Agent Breathers can be mixed to meet specific environmental and chemical needs.

CUSTOMISED DESICCANT OPTIONS INCLUDE

ORANGE SILICA GEL

Silica gel is the most efficient and economic moisture adsobent for general applications. Des-Case offer two types of indicating silica gel, blue-to-pink or orange-to-white. The difference between the two is the chemical used to indicate the colour-change. Blue-to-pink uses cobalt chloride and orange-to-white uses ferric ammonium sulfate.

ACTIVATED CARBON

Activated carbon is an ideal adsobent in applications requiring fume mitigation or air purification.

ACTIVATED ALUMINA

Activated alumina is most effective in removing organic acids, especially those that are larger in size.

MOLECULAR SIEVE

Molecular sieve has high efficiency at low levels of humidity. It is best for drying highly polar alcohols, unsaturated hydrocarbons and static dehydration of gas.

LAYERED (BLUE SILICA GEL & MOLECULAR SIEVE)

Mixing medias such as silica gel and activated carbon are ideal for customers needing to adsorb both moisture and fumes simultaneously.
