Overview

Breather Caps provide rugged, maintenance-free terminal protection for breather lines from sumps, reservoirs, expansion tanks and a wide assortment of industrial applications. The Breather Caps are made of cast aluminum construction and threaded for standard pipe (except the ¾" and 1" sizes which are supplied with set screws).  They are furnished with brass mesh screens which prevent the entry of airborne seeds, dust, bugs, etc.  The screens are removable for inspection and cleaning as they can eventually clog if exposed to an excessively oily or dirty environment.  A routine inspection and maintenance program is recommended.

Application

Preferred Breather Caps are used with main oil storage tanks, day tanks, and belly tanks.
