Every Des-Case breather has been designed to work in a wide variety of industries and applications, using quality, rugged materials and innovative designs in technology. As the originator of the first desiccant breather, Des-Case has been pioneering the breather industry for decades for some of the largest manufacturing companies around the world.
With the most durable polycarbonate casing in the industry, an impact-resistant standpipe that creates optimal and even airflow, quality check-valve technology, honeycomb oil-reducing technology, and so much more. Des-Case has the right solution for virtually any environment or application.
THE FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE AGAINST CONTAMINATION
The desiccant breather replaces the standard dust cap or OEM breather cap on equipment, offering better filtration to protect against even the smallest particulates that destroy the effectiveness of your machinery, and cause downtime and costly repairs. As air is drawn into equipment through the breather, the layered desiccant filter elements remove particulate while the desiccant beads strip harmful moisture. While in service or during shut-down, the desiccant beads attract moisture from inside the equipment reservoir, actively drying the equipment.
As your industrial equipment heats up and cools down, it expands and contracts. And in order to keep machinery from building up too much pressure, equipment OEMs include vent caps on the fill port to allow expanded air to escape. There’s only one problem - while they let air out, those simple caps don’t prevent small dirt particles and moisture from making their way into the tank, which can damage bearings, gears, and valves by slowly wearing away the critical surfaces. Even worse, moisture – over time – will condense inside your oil reservoir, introducing water to your lubricants and keeping your maintenance team busy. With a wide range of sizes and features for almost any application and industry, Des-Case breathers simultaneously remove moisture from the headspace of equipment with silica gel and prevent even the smallest particles from entering your oil tanks with multi-layer filtration.
The best part is you’ll see a return on investment almost immediately. With fewer breakdowns and production stoppages, you’ll run more efficiently and create less waste, all while increasing the working life of your lubricants and equipment.
The Patented ETI Dual Valve can be used in a system to obtain the advantages from both ROP and LOP to create the markets best solution. The dual valve uses the LOP detection in the critical fire risk area for fast detection and constant system supervision, and the positive and reliable pneumatic pulse of ROP from the manual actuators thereby greatly reducing the risk of system leaks and prohibitive unscheduled downtime
The ETI ROP system is very robust and extremely resistant to false alarm, allowing the equipment to achieve uninterrupted higher productivity and operating hours. The system requires normal preventative maintenance practices to ensure it is ever ready to perform flawlessly. The detectors are not supervised as in other systems so they are used in tandem, this is a control method called double redundancy and is required by the standard.
The ETI LOP system responds very quickly to fire detection when it is used in the risk area. It constantly supervises the actuation circuit. One feature of LOP system is that the actuation and detection system are constantly pressurised by the nitrogen charge in the cylinder which makes it supervised system. This type of detection systems is simple to route in the fire risk area due to the flexibility of the thermoplastic tube.
The ETI linear electrical fire wire is an excellent method of fire event detection. It is unique in the market because it uses a purpose designed and manufactured three core cable. There are two signal cables and an uninsulated copper wire all sheathed into one insulated wire that is connected to the ETI control alarm. All linear electrical fire wire detection systems must use an System Control and Indication Panel and can take advantage of the ETI patented dual valve adding further failsafe protection in the event of a total power failure caused by explosive Fire.
This system has much faster and more sensitive fire detection. It also constantly supervises the actuation circuit. The detector contains three IR sensors and provides unsurpassed detection of flame; from light to heavy hydrocarbon fuels, combined with the highest degree of false alarm rejection. The detector has Division and Zone explosion-proof ratings and is suitable for use in indoor and outdoor applications with its IP66 rating. A multi-colour LED on the detector faceplate indicates detector status condition. Microprocessor controlled heated optics increase resistance to moisture and ice if cold climate operation is planned.
The Handheld data logger is part of the ETI Data Logger Control Panel System. It is a useful tool for replacing a PC or Laptop to check or download Alarm data in mining sites or any other situation where the collection of data is required.
The ETI Fleet Management Systems is an exciting new control system. It can report fire, faults and service history to a proprietary software system at the monitoring computer location. Fault reporting is sophisticated, being able to report and display agent cylinder pressures, and designates other faults between actuation and detection systems.
