XCLUDE™ DESICCANT BREATHERS
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.
