Pall 3050 series 1″ polypropylene Non-corroding breather filter is a disposable air breather used to prevent damaging airborne contamination from entering fluid system reservoirs.
- The Pall 3050 disposable air breather is used to prevent damaging airborne contamination from entering fluid system reservoirs
- Constructed of corrosion resistant materials, the breather is suitable for application in wet and humid environments
- The robust stainless steel version is ideal for harsh environments
- Filtration rating 1, 1.5 or 5 micrometers in air
- Temperature range -20 to 80 degrees Celsius
- Filtration rating: micrometers in air: 1,2 or 4µm
- Materials of construction: – Cap and shroud: polypropylene UV stabilized Filtration medium: polypropylene
- Absolute removal ratings for reliability.
- Built-in pre-filtration for economy and cost-effectiveness.
- No media migration – the fibers are continuous and ’fixed’ by intertwining during the manufacturing process giving consistent filtrate quality throughout the life of the filter.
- Temperature range: -20˚C to 80˚C.
- Very low extractables – no binders, lubricants or surfactants are used during manufacture.
- 80% voids volume giving higher dirt holding capacity, longer filter life, and low running costs.
- All components can be incinerated to keep disposal volumes to a minimum.
Airbreathers channel clean air into the tank in a hydraulic system when hydraulic fluid, such as solsenic, is drawn out. It will also draw in impurities from the atmosphere, which, in mining environments especially, contains high levels of dust and airborne particulate matter.
The Pall 3050 air breather prevents damaging airborne contamination from entering the fluid system reservoir. It has a filtration rating of one μm, two μm or four μm in the air and boasts an 80% voids volume for improved dirt-holding capacity to extend filter life and reduce running costs. The air breather is constructed of noncorrosive materials suitable for application in wet and humid environments and capable of withstanding temperatures of-20ºC to +80ºC.
80% to 90% of the airbreathers in any hydraulic system is only suitable for trapping coarser particles of dirt and debris, thereby pointing out that the primary challenge to hydraulic systems with high-pressure housings comes from nonvisible airborne dirt particles.
