Purolator Facet, Inc. continues to build several
breathers that were formerly manufactured under the Bendix,
Facet or Purolator brand names. These breathers were supplied
to mobile equipment OEM's for use on hydraulic reservoirs. Although
no longer in production, these breather caps are ordered to
service older vehicles in the field.
