  • Contain Oil Vapor for Better Reliability

    In a boiler feed pump, an air breather is used to vent the enclosed air space on the bearing housings. With increasing heat and thermal expansion, oil vapors form in the bearing housings and migrate through the air vents. The vapor then condenses in the air filter media saturating the filter with oil. The air breather becomes ineffective, which affects mechanical seals and the overall ...
