SVDB disposable desiccant breathers remove solid particles and moisture from air, drying it with Z-R gel granules. Air is filtered by 10-μm pleated fiberglass air filter, so it is clean and dry upon reaching reservoir. As gel absorbs water, granules change color from red to yellow indicating unit needs to be replaced. Reducing moisture prolongs life of the hydraulic fluid additive package, reduces oxidation of oil and bearing surfaces, and eliminates rusting due to contamination.
