Raxton Exe Breather Drains


Raxton Exe Breather Drains effectively drain any moisture build-up present within the enclosure whilst allowing air in the enclosure to breathe with the surrounding atmosphere minimising moisture build up within the enclosure.

Fastened by means of an Allen key, the Breather Drain should be fitted at the lowest point of the enclosure.

The Breather Drain can be fitted:

a) into a chamfered plain hole using drainage washer and locknut or castellated locknut on the inside of the enclosure.

b) directly into a threaded hole provided that, if the thread protrudes, the drainage hole is visible.

EExe Breather drain plugsThe Breather Drain can be supplied with either a serrated washer and locknut allowing the condensation to drain whilst ensuring the Plug is shakeproof or with a castellated locknut.

The Breather Drain is fitted with an ‘O’ ring as standard ensuring that the IP integrity of the installation is maintained.
Raxton Breather Drains are marked with the appropriate approval number and size.

Tested to IP66.
