Desiccant breathers

HBE desiccant breathers of the LEF series combine the tank breathing, humidity absorption and cleaning of the inflowing air in one unit. At the same time they prevent that air humidity or solids from the outside can get into the storage tank. Due to the permanent air flow of the filter during the air exchange within the storage tank, the humidity therefore is withdrawn from the system. This significantly reduces the oxidation processes in the system. The filter are especially user friendly by displaying the saturation level / amount of moisture absorption with a colour change of the granulate from ruby red (ACTIVE) to light orange (CHANGE). Five filter sizes with according spare parts and additional accessories are available from stock.


  • Inner tube: Stainless steel
  • Body: SAN (Styrol Acrylnitril)
  • Desiccant: ZR-Gel (3 – 6 mm)


  • Reduction of oxidation processes
