Instrument Name: Intake Strainer

Description:

This object consists of two halves, one of which is roughly conical, the other which is cylindrical. Each of these halves is punched all over with round holes 0.5cm in diameter. The two halves are connected by a metal ring out of which two short rods emerge opposite of each other. This ring allows the two halves to be unscrewed and separated.

Primary Materials: Metal

Markings: None.

Dimensions (cm): Length=21cm x Diameter=6cm

Function:

To strain large impurities out of a liquid.

Condition:

Fair. The surface of the metal is corroded, particularly around the ring. One of the bases of the rods coming out of the ring has a white deposit over its surface.
