If you are looking to add another level of particulate control to your fluid control system, the O’Keefe Controls Co. line of miniature in-line screens represent an ideal solution to that requirement. The screens protect critical components from damage or reduced performance due to clogging or reduced flow rate. As such they are particularly well-suited for use in precision orifices, pneumatic transducers, gas and liquid flow instruments, medical devices, filling and purging systems, pneumatic timers, transmitters, pneumatic transmission lines, hydraulic controls, leak test equipment and flow measurement devices. Four sizes of screens are available (10, 15, 25 and 100 microns) in either brass or 303 stainless steel.
O’Keefe’s fine screen breathers provide an air passage into equipment, enclosures, and pneumatic controls while preventing the ingestion of solid particles. Miniature fine screen breathers are rated at 15, 25 or 100 microns and are available in either brass or stainless steel fittings. Connection sizes are 10-32, 1/8″ or 1/4″ NPT.
Uses and Features
The fine screen breathers are used where there is a requirement to ensure that only clean fluid enters into a component or system. Typical breather applications include: equipment enclosures, vented control components, small three- or four-way valves, small two-way vacuum valves, air purge equipment, EMI or RFI shield.
