This is an oleophobic membrane with a silicon adheisve. This is a grey round patch, the outer dimension being 12mm and the inner 6mm. The adhesive area forms an outer ring around the 'breathing area'.
Silicon is used in applications where the operating temperature might exceed +100 deg C. Above this temperature silicon adhesive retains adhesion strength better than the standard acrylic based adhesives.
This vent can be positioned either on your product's internal or external wall. The vent allows your device to equalise in pressure. It has a water entry pressure of 200kPa (approx 20M).
Typical air flow: (under 1kPa pressure)
8x4mm vent = 10 cm3 per minute
14x6mm vent = 21 cm3 per minute
The membrane has a repelling feature, it is designed so liquids roll off it, dust particles fall off under vibration. This oleophobic membrane is good for areas where there might be oils/petrochemicals present. Although this is not a necessity, many engineers specify this vent for general applications in 'clean' environments.
Some examples of where it is used: outdoor LED street lighting, control equipment used within pumping, outdoor wireless enclosures, handheld electronics. Basically it can be used in numerous different applications - it is our most popular general purpose vent type.
There are many standard circular sized vents available (more than listed on this web site). In addition, custom size or shaped vents can be provided.
