Stainless Steel Metal Sieve Mesh
0.5mm hole stainless steel metal sieve mesh filter in top quality 304 grade made from 0.25mm wire. As you can see from the image, this is a coarse mesh specification. This mesh is fairly coarse, but the holes are very small and not especially visible by naked eye. It is of interest to anyone who needs a coarse for any application. You would be able to bend this mesh by hand very easily. Once bent it would hold its shape.
This coarse woven wire mesh is designed to deliver efficient and reliable performance with a focus on simplicity.
With a Mesh Count of 34 Holes/Wires Per Linear Inch and 1,156 Holes/Wires Per Square Inch, this mesh provides ample openings for quick and effective sieving and filtering. Its Wire Thickness of 0.25mm ensures durability and longevity, making it a reliable choice for various applications. The Hole Size/Aperture, measuring 0.497mm, strikes the right balance between allowing materials to pass through while retaining larger particles. This makes it suitable for a wide range of tasks where coarse sieving is required.
Featuring an Open Area of 44%, this mesh ensures sufficient flow while maintaining efficient separation. It is designed for user-friendly customisation—simply cut it to size using scissors. The lightweight wires relative to the hole size make this mesh soft and malleable, allowing for easy manipulation and installation. The uses for this metal sieve mesh are diverse, including sifting and filtering materials in industries such as agriculture, food processing, construction, and more. Whether you’re separating soil, grading aggregates, or filtering liquids, this mesh delivers consistent results with professionalism and efficiency.
Wire Cloth Specification
The specifications of this woven wire mesh are as below:
- Holes / Wires Per Linear Inch = 34
- Holes / Wires Per Square Inch = 1,156
- Wire Thickness = 0.25mm
- Hole Size / Aperture = 0.497mm
- Open Area % = 44%
- Open Area % = We would use scissors to cut this to size. The wires are very light in relation to the hole size, so this is a very soft and malleable mesh
Wait!! Before you order your mesh please first check out our clearance listing which is where we put all of our over-run bargain rolls at reduced prices. You never know, you might find just the roll that you need for your purposes.
We also offer a massive range of 304 stainless steel perforated metal sheet options from immediate stock. In order to produce stainless steel perforated metal sheet, flat sheet metal is punched with round or square holes. Perforated sheets are commonly often used in applications where the passing of air is required. Because the holes are punched, it is possible to have a far stronger finished metal product than it would be for the equivalent thickness in woven or welded mesh.

FAQs For This Product
How Do I Prevent Clogging When Using the Sieve Mesh for Fine Materials?
Preventing clogging when using the sieve mesh for fine materials requires careful handling and maintenance. Here are some steps to help you avoid clogging:
- Pre-Screening: Before using the mesh, consider pre-screening your materials to remove larger particles that could block the finer mesh. This will reduce the likelihood of clogging during the sieving process.
- Optimal Mesh Size: Choose the appropriate mesh size for your specific application. Using a mesh that is too fine for the materials can increase the risk of clogging. Ensure that the mesh size matches the particle size you need to separate.
- Regular Cleaning: Periodically clean the mesh during the sieving process to remove any accumulated particles. Gently tap or shake the mesh to dislodge trapped materials. You can also use a soft brush to sweep away debris.
- Use of Airflow: Incorporate airflow or gentle vibration into your sieving setup. This can help to prevent particles from becoming lodged in the mesh by promoting movement and ensuring that finer materials pass through more easily.
- Mesh Inspection: Regularly inspect the mesh for wear and tear. If you notice any damage or holes in the mesh, replace it promptly. Damaged mesh is more prone to clogging and may not provide accurate results.
- Adjust Sieving Time: Monitor the sieving process closely, and if you notice signs of clogging, adjust the sieving time accordingly. Longer sieving times can sometimes lead to clogging, so optimise the duration based on the materials being processed.
- Material Preparation: Ensure that the fine materials are properly prepared for sieving. They should be evenly distributed across the mesh, and excessive quantities should be avoided to prevent overloading the mesh.
- Use of Lubricants: In some cases, using a small amount of lubricant, such as water or oil, can reduce friction and help fine materials pass through the mesh more smoothly. However, be cautious and ensure that the lubricant is compatible with your materials and application.
Can I Use It for Sieving Abrasive Materials Without Rapid Wear?
Using the sieve mesh for sieving abrasive materials without rapid wear is possible with proper considerations and precautions. Various factors affect the longevity of mesh in such applications.
Firstly, selecting a sieve mesh made from durable materials is crucial. Due to their ability to withstand the abrasive nature of materials, stainless steel or other abrasion-resistant alloys are often preferred. Due to their high wear and corrosion resistance, these materials are suitable for extended use with abrasive materials.
Second, it is crucial to choose the right mesh size. When sieving highly abrasive materials, finer mesh sizes are more susceptible to wear. By reducing direct contact with abrasive particles, a coarser mesh can extend its lifespan.
Please research on the particle size that you wish to filter through before selecting your sieve mesh. You can then search through our site by hole size ‘1mm’ or whichever hole you require.
Is It Suitable for Sifting and Grading Aggregates in Construction?
It can be the fine filter element, but the optimal hole size for sieving and grading aggregates in construction depends on the specific requirements of your project. In general, coarser meshes with larger holes are suitable for this application, typically between 4.75mm (No. 4 sieve) and 19.0 mm (3/4-inch sieve) or larger, depending on the aggregate size and gradation.
