Coarse Stainless Steel 316 Mesh
0.70mm hole coarse 316 mesh in top quality 316 grade stainless steel. The image demonstrates that this is a coarse woven mesh specification. 0.70mm aperture is a great size to be woven mesh, as a consequence it creates a solid structure that can be used for filtration and sieving.
The 316 mesh, crafted from 304-grade stainless steel, offers a coarse weave reminiscent of a kitchen sieve. Designed with 24 holes per linear inch, this results in 576 holes per square inch, ensuring that while it has a relatively open structure, it still offers effective separation. Each wire has a thickness of 0.355mm, with intersections being slightly thicker where two wires meet, lending the mesh added durability and strength.
With an aperture or hole size of 0.70mm, this mesh ensures that larger particles are retained while smaller ones pass through, making it ideal for applications where larger filtration is necessary. The 44% open area strikes a balance between material sturdiness and permeability. This percentage indicates that nearly half of the mesh’s surface allows for passage, ensuring a good flow rate while still offering efficient particle retention.
Constructed from stainless steel, this mesh promises longevity and is resistant to general wear and tear and corrosion, ensuring that it remains effective over extended use. Cutting the mesh is straightforward, with kitchen scissors being the recommended tool, emphasising its user-friendly nature.
Wire Cloth Specification
Below are the specifications of this fine wire mesh:
- Mesh Count = 24 holes per linear inch. The amount of holes measured against a straight line inch
- Holes / Wires Per Square Inch = 576 holes per square inch. The amount of holes per linear inch squared
- Wire Thickness = 0.355mm. The thickness of each wire. The structure is thicker than this where two wires meet
- Hole Size / Aperture = 0.70mm. This is the square hole size from wire to wire
- Open Area % = 44%. The amount of the mesh that is open. The higher this number the more open a mesh is
- Cut With – We cut this mesh with kitchen scissors. We suggest that you do the same
This woven mesh can be used as a sieve to filter out any particle that you require larger than 0.70mm.
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 sheet in application 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 Fine Is the Weave of the 316 Mesh?
The 316 mesh has a coarse weave that’s reminiscent of a kitchen sieve. In terms of holes per square inch, it has 576 holes per linear inch. This mesh has an aperture of 0.70mm, or a hole size of 0.70mm. In the context of wire mesh products, this particular weave can be considered to have a coarser structure, although the term “fine” can be relative. The design allows larger particles to be retained while smaller ones pass through, making it suitable for applications requiring more substantial filtration or separation.
Can I Use the 316 Mesh in Pharmaceutical or Laboratory Settings?
Certainly. Pharmaceutical and laboratory applications benefit greatly from the 316 mesh, made from 316-grade stainless steel. 316-grade stainless steel has an enhanced corrosion resistance, especially against chlorides, making it ideal for settings exposed to saline solutions or certain aggressive chemicals. In addition, its non-reactive nature ensures that it will not interfere with chemical compositions or experiments. Pharmaceutical environments require purity and cleanliness, and 316 mesh meets these standards. In both laboratory and pharmaceutical settings, its characteristics align well with the rigorous standards of filtration and separation.
Is the 316 Mesh Safe for Filtering Drinking Water?
Yes, the 316 mesh, made from 316-grade stainless steel, is highly suitable for filtering drinking water. A 316-grade stainless steel has superior corrosion resistance, particularly against chlorides found in some water sources. Due to its resistance, the mesh won’t corrode easily, even in saline or chlorine-rich environments, nor will it leach harmful compounds into the water. Moreover, its non-reactive properties ensure the water’s purity remains uncompromised. When used for drinking water filtration, regular maintenance and cleanliness checks are recommended to guarantee water quality and safety. In summary, the 316 mesh’s material properties align well with the stringent standards required for potable water filtration.
