Bulk lubricant and diesel storage tanks are often located in inhospitable areas with heat, dust, humidity and rain all acting to contaminate the stored product. Storage tanks should take into consideration the effective removal of airborne contaminants and moisture to maximise both fluid and component life.
A 3 micron air breather filter is used to eliminate dust ingression and the removal of humidity to eliminate tank condensation is achieved via desiccant or an active reservoir vent.
Specific breathers have been designed for bulk tanks that will remove these contaminants and allow high air flow rates into and out of tanks. They can be either disposable or re-buildable.
Clean Lube Solutions recommend and offer either Descase desiccant or Donaldson TRAP bulk tank breathers.
