Air Sentry® Breathers - The Gold Standard in Contamination Control
Air Sentry® Breathers Overview - Air Sentry breathers first set the gold standard with their introduction in 1997. Achieving near total control of fluid system contamination, Air Sentry has led the industry by improving productivity, prolonging fluid life, reducing maintenance costs and controlling expensive downtime. The pace of a competitive world absolutely requires this level of performance.
Air Sentry breathers are designed to replace the breather cap or air filter on gear boxes, hydraulic fluid reservoirs, bulk storage tanks, oil drums, oil-filled transformers and other fluid reservoirs. Air Sentry desiccant breathers adsorb water from the air before it enters your fluid system and remove particulate contaminants as small as 2 microns. The silica gel changes color as it becomes depleted, turning from gold to dark green. It's easy to identify the condition of a breather and quickly replace it, maintaining the cleanliness of the fluid reservoir.

Air Sentry® set the industry gold standard with their first line of contamination control breathers in 1997 and today that standard is raised with the introduction of GUARDIAN.
Air Sentry was the first to integrate check valve technology into a desiccant breather. Being the first to offer replacement cartidges was another significant stride in reducing replacement costs for customers.
Now, GUARDIAN takes check valve technology and cost-saving replacement measures to the next level. Air Sentry also introduces four exclusive advancements that will again raise the bar in contamination control:
GUARDIAN is the first breather ever constructed of Tritan. This patented material is the most chemical-, temperature-, and impact-resistant combination casing on the market.
GUARDIAN is first again with an isolation check valve, which isolates the adsorbent from exhaust air to lengthen service life of the desiccant while also protecting it from volatile and splashing fluids.
This proprietary feature is a true-life accurate indicator of filter conditions.
Stack cartridges to extend the life of breathers even further using the Modular Stack Ring™. This proprietary feature lengthens the service life, reducing cost and maintenance intervals.
Introducing ColorGuard, an innovative anodized color-coding system that provides immediate identification of contents to prevent cross contamination. This streamlines maintenance and eliminates handling issues. Available in eight distinct colors.
Drum Adapter Kits allow breathers to be installed on any storage tank or drum; there's never been a cleaner, more effective way to store, filter and pump lubricants from a drum. Unique design ensures all fluid handling is managed through one adapter. Anodized aluminum adapters have quick connects for pumping oil in and out of drum. Single-port access to the oil reduces contamination as drum remains closed. Off-line filtration units easily connect to adapter without ever disrupting the performance of the breather.
Hydraulic Reservoir Adapter Kits allow breathers to be installed on any hydraulic fluid tank or reservoir. The patent-pending aluminum adapters have quick connects in two sized for pumping oil in and out, allowing the system to remain closed at all times, dramatically reducing contamination while improving oil-handling safety. Off-line filtration can also be connected through the adapter without ever disrupting the breather or opening the tank.
Provides a low profile yet rugged way to mount a 1" NPT desiccant breather to a hydraulic reservoir. Includes six hole ANSI pattern gasket and fasteners for perfect replacement of bayonet flange and vent cap. The beveled surface directs spills and contaminants away from the opening.
Allows breathers to be installed on any gearbox. Oil can be pumped in or out without opening the gearbox to atmosphere. Offline filtration, oil changes and sampling can be handled through the adapter. They are a faster, simpler and cleaner way to handle gear oils and reduce ingression. Available in eight colors to segregate dissimilar fluids, avoiding cross contamination.
Replaces a standard breather cap on a hydraulic reservoir. Simply remove the breather cap, place the bayonet adapter on the existing flange, and rotate one-quarter turn. No tank modification is required. And they accommodate Air Sentry® breathers with a 1" NPT connection.
