Stainless Steel Fine Oil Strainer Mesh
The mesh ideal as an oil strainer. 0.142mm hole 316 stainless steel fine woven wire cloth filter mesh in top quality 316 marine grade made from 0.112mm wire. As you can see from the image this is a fine mesh specification. The holes are very small and not especially visible by naked eye. It is of interest to anyone who needs a fine mesh for any application. As a result of the fineness of the wires, you would be able to bend and fold this mesh by hand very easily.
The oil strainer mesh is crafted with precision, resembling a cloth-like texture, perfect for efficient oil filtration. Made from 316 stainless steel, it boasts durability and resistance against corrosion. With a mesh count of 100 holes per linear inch, it offers an impressive 10,000 holes per square inch, ensuring fine filtration without compromising the flow rate. Each wire measures 0.112mm in thickness, though it’s essential to note that at the intersections of two wires, this thickness is naturally greater. The hole size or aperture is a clear 0.142mm from wire to wire, resulting in an open area of 31%, which is an optimal balance for straining while maintaining structural integrity.
Wire Cloth Specification
Below are the specifications of this fine woven mesh wire cloth:
- Mesh Count = 100 holes per linear inch. The amount of holes measured against a straight line inch
- Holes / Wires Per Square Inch = 10,000 holes per square inch. The amount of holes per linear inch squared
- Wire Thickness = 0.112mm. The thickness of each wire. The structure is thicker than this where two wires meet
- Hole Size / Aperture = 0.142mm. This is the square hole size from wire to wire
- Open Area % = 31%. The amount of the mesh that is open. The higher this number the more open a mesh is
- Cut With – Standard kitchen scissors or fingers alone. We would use fingertips to tear this mesh to size
You will find this 316 stainless steel wire mesh to be of interest if you require a very fine product for a filtration application. The stainless steel wire used to make this fine mesh is 316 grade, which provides excellent corrosion resistance.
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 Does The Hole Size Affect Oil Filtration?
The hole size, or aperture, in the oil strainer mesh plays a critical role in oil filtration. When the hole size is smaller, finer particles are trapped, ensuring that the strained oil is purer and free of even minute impurities. This results in clearer oil with fewer sediments. Alternatively, a larger hole size will allow for faster filtration rates since the oil will be able to pass through more quickly, but it might not catch the tiniest particles. Therefore, selecting the right hole size is crucial depending on the desired filtration level. The 0.142mm hole size of the oil strainer mesh provides a balance between efficient filtration and maintaining a reasonable flow rate, making it suitable for most general oil straining requirements.
Is The Oil Strainer Mesh Resistant To Corrosion?
Yes, the oil strainer mesh, made from 316 stainless steel, is highly resistant to corrosion. In harsh environments or when exposed to corrosive substances, such as saline conditions or certain chemicals, the 316 grade is renowned for exhibiting superior corrosion resistance. As a result of the presence of molybdenum, it resists chloride corrosion better. This makes it especially suitable for applications in marine or high-chloride environments. For long-term use, the 316 stainless steel oil strainer mesh needs to be cleaned regularly to maintain pristine condition, but overall, it offers robust corrosion and rust protection.
Is The Oil Strainer Mesh Safe For Food Contact?
Yes, the oil strainer mesh made from 316 stainless steel is safe for food contact. The 316 stainless steel grade is often utilised in the food and beverage industry because of its non-reactive nature and resistance to corrosion from food acids and salts. It doesn’t leach harmful compounds into the food, ensuring that the quality and taste of the food remain uncompromised. Regular cleaning after use is advised to maintain its hygienic properties, but when properly cared for, the 316 stainless steel oil strainer mesh provides a safe and reliable medium for food processing and straining applications.
