Stainless Steel Heavy Duty Mesh Filtering
2.75mm hole heavy duty mesh filtering in top quality 304 grade stainless steel made from 0.43mm wire. As you can see from the image, this is a heavy woven mesh specification. 2.75mm aperture is fairly large to be woven to form a mesh netting, as a consequence it requires a thick wire to produce.
The stainless steel heavy duty mesh filtering offers a robust and reliable solution for various filtering applications. This product features a 2.75mm hole size, which is considerably large for a woven mesh, providing a substantial open area of 75%. Made from durable 304 grade stainless steel, the wire has a thickness of 0.43mm, ensuring the mesh’s strength and longevity.
With a mesh count of 8 holes per linear inch, or 64 holes per square inch, this heavy-duty mesh is designed to withstand significant stress, making it suitable for applications that require a sturdy barrier without compromising on flow rate or filtration capacity. Its substantial open area percentage allows for high throughput, which is essential in industrial processes where efficiency is paramount.
This heavy-duty filtering mesh is easy to work with despite its sturdy construction. It can be cut using tin snips, a guillotine, or an angle grinder, allowing for precision sizing and fitting for custom requirements. The ease of customisation makes it ideal for a range of uses, including machine guards, ventilation screens, or any setting where a strong, coarse filter is needed.

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 Select The Right Material For Mesh Filtering?
Here are some steps to help you select the right material for mesh filtering:
- Consider the fluid or material being filtered: The first step in selecting the right material for mesh filtering is to consider the properties of the fluid or material being filtered. This includes factors such as the temperature, pH, and chemical composition of the fluid or material, as well as its size and density.
- Determine the desired filtration efficiency: Consider the desired level of filtration efficiency, taking into account the size of the particles that need to be removed. Larger particles can typically be filtered using a coarser mesh, while finer particles may require a finer mesh.
- Consider the operating conditions: The operating conditions, such as pressure and temperature, can have a significant impact on the choice of material for mesh filtering. Some materials may be more suitable for high-pressure applications, while others may be better suited for high-temperature applications.
- Balance filtration efficiency and flow rate: The choice of material for mesh filtering should also take into account the desired balance between filtration efficiency and flow rate. A finer mesh will provide better filtration, but may also reduce the flow rate, while a coarser mesh will allow for a higher flow rate, but may also allow for larger particles to pass through.
- Consider the material’s compatibility: Consider the compatibility of the material with the fluid or material being filtered, as well as with any chemicals that may be present in the fluid or material. Some materials may be susceptible to corrosion or chemical attack, while others may be resistant to these effects.
- Cost and availability: Finally, consider the cost and availability of the material, taking into account any factors that may impact the cost, such as the size and thickness of the mesh, and the desired quantity.
How Do I Calculate Flow Rate?
- Porosity of the mesh: This refers to the ratio of open space in the mesh to the total volume of the mesh. The higher the porosity, the higher the flow rate.
- Viscosity of the fluid: The viscosity of the fluid affects the flow rate by influencing the resistance to flow. Higher viscosity fluids will flow more slowly through a mesh than lower viscosity fluids.
- Pressure drop: The pressure drop across the mesh is the difference in pressure between the inlet and outlet of the mesh. The greater the pressure drop, the lower the flow rate.
- Mesh size: The size of the mesh openings will directly impact the flow rate. Smaller mesh openings will result in a lower flow rate as they offer more resistance to flow.
Once you have determined these factors, you can use the following formula to calculate the flow rate:
Flow rate = K * (Pressure drop) / (Viscosity * Porosity)
Would This Mesh Make A Good Strainer Material?
Yes, this mesh is commonly used as a straining element to remove large particles or debris from a fluid stream, such as in piping systems or industrial processes.
