Mesh vs. Particle Diameter

Strainer and filter - mesh size vs. opening size

Sponsored Links

A strainer with a cleanable screen can in general retain particles larger than 45 μm (325 mesh). Smaller particles must be retained in a filter. Mesh size vs. particle diameters for strainers and filters are indicated below.
