Fluid cleanliness is of paramount importance to maintain a lubricant quality and ensure trouble free operation.

This is where the Des-Case range of filter breathers in both disposable and re-buildable capabilities comes in. The removal of solid contaminants to 3 micron absolute plus 99.9% moisture removal meet the criteria for efficiency as well as cost effectiveness.

Moisture ingestion is a major cause of machinery failure, yet many people do not make any serious efforts to exclude air/moisture from their machinery.

EngineCare have represented Des-Case Corporation of U.S.A. since 2003. Des-Case are a leading manufacturer of silica-gel breathers, which allow for the passage of air in and out of the machinery but maintains the air in a clean and dry state. This ensures moisture is excluded from the unit, which increases the life of any lubricant or product and reduces any rust or scale formation.

Des-Case manufacture a wide range of disposable and re-usable units, plus products which include filters, to remove moisture or particles where these are likely contaminants in oils. Generally, particular breathers are required to meet your specific requirements.
