It is possible, but not likely. Our breathers are made of rugged ABS plastic caps and a high impact resistant acrylic tube, adhesively welded together. While they are sturdy enough to withstand most environments, the acrylic tube can crack if dropped from significant height onto a shop floor. If the tube cracks or breaks, solid particles and water can enter the breather through the crack. It is best to replace any breather that is cracked or broken.
