XCLUDE™ DESICCANT BREATHERS

XTRACT™ OIL SIGHT GLASSES Lubricant contamination is one of the leading causes for machine failure, and contamination can begin before the lubricant ever enters the machine. Gearboxes, pumps and reservoirs have to “breathe” when the air expands and contracts, as well as when incoming fluid displaces air, or when air is drawn into hydraulic components. Each time a unit breathes in, it brings with it small debris and moisture, depending on the operating environment. Over time, the effect of this contamination can be damaging to the lubricant and to the equipment, leading to additive stripping, corrosion and rust. accelerating wear and leading to costly repairs.

The simple solution to these problems is the use of desiccant breathers, which can stop water and particulates from contaminating the lubricant in the first place. From the time oil enters your facility to the end of its useful life, protecting it with desiccant breathers will extend the life of the oil and the equipment, decrease downtime, and save you hundreds of thousands of dollars. LE has partnered with Des-Case Corporation, one of the best breather manufacturers in the industry. With this partnership, LE can offer the entire Xclude™ product line as well as provide on-site installation and support. LE is one of the largest Des-Case authorized distributors in the U.S.


Xclude™ Standard Breathers

Xclude™ Standard Breathers Standard disposable breathers work in a variety of industries and applications. Ideal for intermittent operation in transformers, storage tanks and totes. The breather has an integrated nylon standpipe that can handle high vibration and volatile environments. Each breather is outfitted with a clear polycarbonate casing that allows easy view of color-indicating desiccant in order to monitor when the breather should be replaced. Convenient, simple to install, and can move any lubrication reliability program forward. The filter element captures particles at 3-micron absolute (¦3¡Ý200).

Xclude™ Extended Series Breathers

Xclude™ Standard BreathersXclude Extended Series Breathers Product Information
Xclude™ Extended Series breathers combine the trusted materials, design, and high air flow of the Standard breathers with the check-valves of the Xcludetm High Humidity Expansion Chamber breathers, plus a new oil mist reducing feature and more than double the desiccant!

How It Works
As wet, contaminated air is drawn through the unit, multiple 3-micron polyester filter elements remove solid particulate and the color-indicating silica gel extracts moisture. When air is expelled from the container, the top foam pad prevents oil mist from contacting silica gel or entering the atmosphere. Additionally, the breather is outfitted with a resilient nylon standpipe and polypropylene oil mist reducer to allow oil mist to coalesce and drain back into the reservoir, rather than compromising the desiccant. Six high-quality umbrella check-valves are located underneath the unit to isolate equipment from ambient conditions prolonging breather life and protecting system integrity.

Xclude™ Adapters and Accessories for Breathers

Xclude™ Standard BreathersXtract 3-D Product Information
LE's Xclude breather accessory and adapter products offer an optimum solution for various equipment connection needs. No matter the connection type and size, breather adapters provide a sealed system that will protect equipment from external moisture and harmful particle contamination. Choose from a variety of materials, connection port size, and thread requirements in order to properly outfit your equipment application.tion with a standard oil sight glass or alone on equipment where there is no water problem, the 3-D BullsEye sight window is another XtractTM tool that provides easy visual monitoring of the oil level from any angle.

Unless you are standing directly in front of them, old-fashioned sight plugs on oil reservoirs make it difficult to view the oil level. The glass stains easily and is partially obscured by the hardware around it. The XtractTM solution is the 3-D BullsEye sight window. This one-piece clear polished acrylic cylinder – made of the same nonstaining acrylic as other XtractTM sight glasses – is threaded on one end for easy installation.
