Industry spends millions of dollars annually trating the negative effects of contamination caused by wet, dirty air. Beach has 3 types of breathers to suit every application.

Disposable Hygroscopic Breathers
Remove moisture and particulate before it enters the fluid containing reservoir

Moisture and particulate accumulation are major factors of oil contamination in industrial equipment. Neglected, these detriments restrict equipment efficiency, causing machine downtime and significant expense in replacement oil, parts and repair labor.

Manufactured with a hygroscopic agent, Beach Breathers have the capability to extract water vapor from the air as it is drawn through the unit. Accompanying solid particulate is then removed by a patented polyester fabric filter, allowing only clean, dry air to enter the system.

Hygroscopic Breathers
For harsh or corrosive environments

The steel breathers were designed specifically for applications where there are very high temperatures, extremely dirty air, or a corrosive environment. They are ruggedly designed, with housings of epoxy coated carbon steel or stainless steel. Beach Hygroscopic Breathers accommodate large air flow rates with minimal pressure drops.

Beach hygroscopic breathers are unique, patented air filter and water vapor removal systems. They replace the standard breather or ventilation system on virtually all types of industrial equipment, tanks and reservoirs.

As wet dirty air is drawn through the unit, a microglass pleated filter removes particles down to 1 micron and the hygroscopic agent extracts moisture.

When the air is expelled from the container, the pleated filter cleans itself by releasing dirt back into the atmosphere. The hygroscopic agent is partially reactivated by the dry air passing back through, thereby permitting longer periods between recharging or replacing.

An outside sight glass indicator changes color from blue to pink when the unit requires recharging.

Hygroscopic Tank Breathers
With added particulate filtration

Draw-down and temperature changes in storage process tanks permit moisture-laden, heavily contaminated outside air to enter hte tank, thereby polluting the contents. Beach Hygroscopic Breathers attack the cause, proactively preventing expensive problems such as product waste and time consuming reconditioning.

As the moist, dirty air is drawn through the unit, the moisture is extracted by the drying agent and the filter removes particulates. Silica gel, the most effective drying agent, is used exclusively in the Beach breather and a patented, knitted polyester filter removes particles from the air down to 3-microns.

Beach tank breathers are manufactured to withstand typical industrial and tank farm environments. Designed for installation on virtually any storage and/or process tank, they are available in eight sizes. What's more the tank breathers handle large volumes of air flowing in and out of the storage vessel.
