Des-Case Marks 10-Year Check-Valve Technology Anniversary

Goodlettsville, Tenn - Des-Case Corporation, a leading provider of solutions for equipment and plant reliability, today marked the ten year anniversary of the development of the company’s desiccant breather check-valve technology.

The decade of performance was observed in remarks to company employees by Des-Case President Brian Gleason.

“For more than 25 years our innovative desiccant breathers have been helping companies better manage contamination… prolonging equipment life, protecting against production down time and positively impacting everyone’s bottom line,” Gleason told employees.  “The check value innovation, which we developed a decade ago, has truly delivered value to our customers.  Des-Case employees are to be commended for their innovation and their dedication to producing a quality product.”

In 2002, Des-Case partnered with a local automobile manufacturing plant to pilot test a large scale, hybrid desiccant breather with check-valves.  The new innovation provided added protection of application headspace by isolating the unit from ambient conditions, ultimately extending desiccant life by as much as 75 percent.  The result of the pilot was the immediate launch of the Des-Case HydroGuard Select, and later, the VentGuard and Hydroguard lines of hybrid breathers.

Desiccant breather technology was invented in 1983 by Des-Case Chairman Jim Waller.  Since then, the company has continued to evolve its standard and specialty breathers to keep contamination out of reservoirs.  Des-Case has also added additional products that address contamination already in equipment and continues to introduce more products with its partners to help them provide a complete solution to their contamination challenges.  Today, Des-Case provides hundreds of thousands of devices annually to the world’s industries.
