OILMISER™ Air Breather Assemblies for Speed Reducers & Gearboxes 


JLM Systems now offers a full range of OILMISER™ Gearbox Breathers and Accessories, designed for gearboxes that operate continuously.  In these critical applications a “kidney loop” filtration system, independent of the gearbox operation, remains the best choice for machinery reliability.

OILMISER™ Gearbox Breathers and accessories are designed to replace the gearbox breather that was supplied by the manufacturer.  In most cases the OILMISER™ Gearbox Breather can be installed in minuets, and without gearbox modifications.

Without compromising the fluid level in the gearbox, or the integrity of the enclosed air space, an off-line filtration system will continuously circulate and polish the oil, removing contamination that adversely affects the long term performance of lubricated machinery.

On gearboxes with a top access female pipe port, the OILMISER™ Gearbox Top Breather is available in 3/4" and 1" NPT (male) pipe. 

The Gearbox Top Breather as illustrated has the following part number GTB-4100-A100-QC50.  It has a 1" NPT male pipe connection, a separate airway for a slip fit desiccant breather and a separate oil passage with a 1/2 inch Quick Disconnect (Coupler) and dust plug.  This unique feature provides a burpless flow path for the returning oil.

Our Flange Mount Gearbox Top Breather can be mounted to the gearbox inspection cover, using a conventional 6 hole by 2.88" bolt circle pattern.  For the flange mount version illustrated, the part number is GTB-1000-QC50. Air quality within the enclosed air space is assured with the OILMISER™ 5 micron air filter and all-weather molded cap, which stays in place at all times.

A variety of OILMISER™ Top End Couplers can accommodate alternative air filters including desiccant air breathers.

In the normal set-up for independent Off-Line Filtration on gearboxes and speed reducers, the bottom drain port is used for the suction line to the Off-Line Filtration system.  The OILMISER™ Gearbox Service Point threads into the bottom drain port. 

The part number for the Gearbox Service Point illustrated is GSP-4100-MB25-QN50. It  has a 1" male pipe connection.  It includes a 12" long (1/4" ID) stainless steel sampling tube, a Minimess sampling valve, and a 1/2 inch Quick Disconnect (Nipple) and dust cap.  The polished oil from the filtration system is then returned to the Gearbox via the side port on the OILMISER™ Gearbox Top Breather. 

OILMISER™ Gearbox Breathers are also available for speed reducers and gearboxes that use a side port for filling and venting.  OILMISER™ Gearbox Side Breathers are designed for female pipe ports from 2" NPT down to 1" NPT.  All mounting hardware and the return oil tube are 316 stainless steel.
