Stainless Steel Heavy Duty Sieve Mesh
3mm hole heavy duty sieve mesh in top quality 304 grade stainless steel made from 1.2mm wire. As you can see from the image, this is a heavy woven mesh specification. 3mm aperture is fairly large to be woven to form a mesh netting, as a consequence it requires a thick wire to produce.
The 6 mesh product is a robust and durable choice for sieving and filtration tasks that require added strength. Designed specifically for projects where a sturdier mesh is paramount, it stands out with its 1.2mm wire thickness. One of the key specifications of this mesh is its Mesh Count, which is 6 holes per linear inch. When translated to a broader scale, this means there are 36 holes for every square inch.
The strength of this mesh doesn’t compromise on its hole size or aperture. At 3mm, the hole size provides a balance between functionality and durability. This ensures that while it can sieve out larger particles, it doesn’t restrict flow or movement unnecessarily. In terms of the mesh’s openness, the Open Area % is 50%. This indicates that half of the mesh’s surface area is open space, offering a good blend of permeability and strength.
For those considering customising or adjusting the size of the mesh for specific requirements, it’s easy to work with. It can be cut using tools such as tin snips, a guillotine, or an angle grinder, giving users flexibility in terms of reshaping or resizing.

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
Why Use This Heavy Duty Woven Mesh As A Sieve?
Heavy-duty stainless steel sieve mesh with 1.2mm wire thickness and 3mm holes offers notable advantages. As a first benefit, 304 stainless steel is highly resistant to rust, corrosion, and tarnishing. As a result, sieve mesh remains resilient even when used with substances containing a high moisture content. The 1.2mm wire thickness indicates a high level of durability, allowing the sieve to withstand extensive pressure and use without losing structural integrity. This robustness is vital for heavy-duty applications where the sieve may face continuous or rigorous use. In addition, 304 stainless steel is widely recognised for its hygienic properties and food safety, making it an excellent choice for the culinary and food-processing industries.
What Particle Size Will It Filter Out?
The sieve mesh you specified has a hole size of 3mm. This means that it can filter out particles larger than 3mm.
However, it’s important to note that actual results might vary depending on a number of factors. For example, the shape and density of the particles can affect the sieving process. Particles that are smaller than 3mm but have irregular shapes might not pass through the holes easily.
Regardless, under normal circumstances, you can expect this sieve mesh to effectively filter out particles larger than 3mm.
Can I Bend This Mesh?
Yes, you can bend the 304 stainless steel heavy-duty sieve mesh. Stainless steel is known for its flexibility along with its strength and durability. However, the ease and degree to which you can bend it will depend on the thickness of the wire and the method you are using.
Since this mesh is described as heavy-duty with a wire thickness of 1.2mm, it will be relatively tougher to bend compared to thinner wire meshes. You will need to apply a considerable amount of force to bend it, and it may be easier to do so with the help of tools like pliers or a vice.
Remember, while stainless steel can be bent, if it’s over-stressed or bent at sharp angles, it can potentially weaken or crack. It’s always best to proceed with care and take safety precautions, like wearing protective gloves, to prevent injuries from the steel’s sharp edges.
