In a typical industrial application, it is unlikely that the 2-micron filter cloth will become clogged before the breather has reached its full capacity of water. The filter cloth is a patented knit polyester with the two sides made differently. The side that is placed in the up position in the breather is knitted with a loose pile surface that closes to 2-micron when hit by the incoming air. When air is expelled from the tank it goes back through the filter and the knit opens back up (loose) throwing off the particles collected on the top surface. In the filter industry this is called “€œbackflushing€.” These particles flow out of the breather with the expelled air creating a “€œself-cleaning”€ process.
