What Are Power Breathers, How Do They Work, and Why Are They Important?

If you work with any sort of industrial equipment, you've probably heard the term "Power Breather" before. Large-scale machinery, gearboxes, sumps and reservoirs, and other types of production equipment make use of them.

What is a Power Breather? The Power Breather belongs to the family of devices known as desiccant breathers.

Desiccants produce a state of dryness around them, and are commonly found in items we buy regularly.

To that end, we're going to discuss a wide variety of issues regarding groundwater, and how to keep it clean and safe--and why that is so important. Water covers a whole lot of the Earth.

Biodegradable vs. Compostable – Is There A Difference?

Here at Advanced Filtration, we are constantly looking at new trends in our industry as well as movements around the world. In recent years, environmental conservation has become a crucial topic for everyone—not just the ecologically-conscious—and many organizations are working towards implementing policies that will drive this agenda.

However, it can sometimes become difficult for a company to choose which products are the best to make, or which to choose for their everyday use. In this article, we want to explore this topic further, and clear up some of the confusion. When people talk about environmentally friendly products, “compostable” and “biodegradable” are some of the words they use often. However, is there a difference between biodegradable and compostable products, or are they interchangeable terms? What Is Biodegradable? Biodegradable is a term we see a lot in the things we buy, from clothes to products such as soap.
