Stainless Steel Wire Cloth Filter Mesh
0.223mm hole 316 stainless steel fine woven wire cloth filter mesh in top quality 316 marine grade made from 0.14mm 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 wire cloth filter is a finely woven mesh crafted from 316-grade stainless steel, known for its durability and resistance. Precision is evident in its design, with a mesh count of 70 holes per linear inch, culminating in 4,900 holes per square inch. This density ensures a balance between breathability and filtration, with the open area accounting for 38% of its total structure.
Each wire has a thickness of 0.14mm, while intersections, where two wires converge, will exhibit a slightly increased thickness due to the weave. The resulting square hole size, or aperture, measures at 0.223mm from wire to wire. This configuration establishes the mesh’s reliability for varied filtration applications.
In terms of adaptability, the wire cloth filter can be tailored to fit specific requirements. It can be easily cut using standard kitchen scissors or, for smaller adjustments, even torn to size using fingertips. This adaptability makes the mesh an invaluable asset for various applications, from industrial filtration to household use.

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 Properly Cut The Wire Cloth Filter To Size?
To cut the wire cloth filter accurately and safely to your desired size, follow these steps:
- Measurement: Begin by determining the exact dimensions you require. Use a ruler or measuring tape, and if necessary, mark the cutting lines on the wire cloth filter with a washable marker or chalk.
- Flat Surface: Place the wire cloth filter on a solid, flat surface to prevent any unwanted folds or misalignments during the cutting process.
- Sharp Tools: While it’s possible to cut the wire cloth filter with standard kitchen scissors, for precision and ease, use sharp shears or tin snips designed for metal.
- Steady Cutting: Start your cut from one edge, keeping your hand steady. Follow the marked lines, ensuring a straight cut. If the mesh begins to bunch or wrinkle, stop and flatten it before continuing.
- Handle with Care: To avoid warping the mesh, hold the section you’re cutting taut, but without stretching or deforming its shape.
- Safety Precautions: Wear protective gloves when handling and cutting the wire cloth filter. This will protect your hands from potential sharp edges and provide a better grip.
- Finishing: Once you’ve made your cuts, inspect the edges. If any are particularly sharp or jagged, you can gently file them down for a smoother finish.
Can I Use The Wire Cloth Filter In High-Temperature Applications?
Yes, the wire cloth filter made of 316-grade stainless steel is well-suited for high-temperature applications. The 316-grade stainless steel is well known for its superior heat resistance and can effectively resist oxidation at temperatures up to approximately 870°C (1,598°F). Furthermore, stainless steel of this grade provides stability at elevated temperatures, ensuring minimal degradation or structural changes to the mesh when heated. The specific temperature range of your application must, however, align with the material’s properties. Regular and prolonged exposure to high temperatures might necessitate more frequent inspections and potential replacements over time, to maintain optimal performance.
Is The Wire Cloth Filter Suitable For Aquarium Or Fish Tank Filtration?
Wire cloth filters made from 316-grade stainless steel are suitable for aquarium or fish tank filtration. Its corrosion-resistant nature makes it suitable for both freshwater and saltwater environments. The fine structure of the mesh ensures efficient particle capture and consistent water flow. As it is made of stainless steel, it does not release harmful substances, ensuring a safe habitat for aquatic life. In order to maintain a healthy environment for the aquarium’s inhabitants, regular cleaning and maintenance are vital.
