Air quality and cleanliness is a major consideration for the reliability of machinery and the safety and protection of both the asset components and the environment.

The IRS Breather Splash Guard works to extend the service life machinery and fluids through removing moisture, solid particles, and other contaminants from air being breathed into machinery compartment. By minimising water contamination in fuel, hydraulic and lube oil systems, downtime of machinery is reduced, productivity is increased and machine life is extended.
