free passage of air into tanks, dry cargo holds, or
storage spaces ... and prevent vacuum or pressure

water. The fine monel flame screen protects tank fluids

prevents the entrance of insects into areas serviced by
A coarse monel Protecting Screen, separated from the
mechanical damage to the Flame Screen and acts as a
deterrent to clogging this inner screen with paint.
