Wire Mesh for Flame Proofing
Flame proofing wire mesh, sometimes known as 'Davy lamp gauze', is used as a screen within a flame arrestor.
Air (and any firedamp or flammable vapour present) passes through the mesh apertures freely enough to support combustion, but holes within the woven wire mesh are too fine to allow a flame to propagate through and ignite any flammable vapour on the outside of the mesh.
Due to its fire-resistant properties, Locker flame proof gauze wire mesh is commonly used as flame proofing within a wide range of industries including petrochemical, marine, automotive, mechanical and electrical installation. It is particularly effective for the safe storage, transportation and processing of flammable liquids or gases.
