Wire mesh is commonly specified by the ‘mesh count’, the number of wires per linear inch, sometimes represented with the hash symbol (#). A small mesh count sheet will have larger holes and a high mesh count will have very fine holes. Inoxia currently stocks stainless steel woven wire between 4# and 400#.
When choosing which mesh count, one of the first questions to ask is “What is the largest particle that could acceptably pass through?” For example, a fuel pump can tolerate much larger particles than a fuel injector. You can also visit our mesh recommendations page for an extensive list of applications.
Sheets are available in pre-cut squares, if you need anything larger or different, you can have custom sizes from 1.2m wide rolls, just get in touch with your requirements.
