BT Breathers with T.R.A.P. Technology

Self-Regenerating Moisture and Particulate Breathers

Protect your uptime, critical hydraulic & lube assets and fluid life. Hy-Pro Thermally Reactive Advanced Protection (T.R.A.P.) breathers are critical in Hy-Pro’s Total System Cleanliness approach as a barrier preventing airborne particles and water from entering reservoirs and gearboxes. Unlike traditional dessicant breathers, T.R.A.P. breathers can self-regenerate their water-holding capacity, extending the life of the breather and lowering the total cost of ownership.

Long life, fewer change-outs.

Unlike traditional silica gel breathers, Hy-Pro T.R.A.P. breathers utilize a technology that allows the breather to continuously regenerate its water absorbing capacity. This technology allows the breather life to be extended up to 6 months. By reducing the number of change-outs required, money is saved in both parts and labor.

Self-Regenerating Water Absorbing Capacity.

Atmospheric moisture is a continuous threat to efficient operations of your equipment and machinery. Hy-Pro T.R.A.P Breathers absorb water from the air coming into the reservoir. Air is heated and dried in the warm hydraulic reservoir. As the tank exhales, the dry air strips the moisture from the saturated T.R.A.P. media, regenerating its life.

Dual contamination prevention.

Each Hy-Pro T.R.A.P. Breather is equipped with an internal 3 micron particulate filter along with a proprietary water absorbing media to keep your system both clean and dry. T.R.A.P. Breathers utilize a full pleated media pack to maximize dirt holding capacity and minimize pressure drop.

Complete drying system.

Achieve the ultimate head space drying system when paired with the TMR-Air or TMR-N2 reservoir driers. The combination of the two technologies will eliminate condensation issues in tanks and reservoirs.
