MESH TO MICRON CONVERSION CHART
WHAT DOES MESH SIZE MEAN?
Figuring out what mesh sizes are simple. All you need to do is counting the number of openings in one inch of screen.
The number of openings is the mesh size. So a 4 mesh screen means there are four little squares in one inch square of the screen.
A 100 mesh screen has 100 openings, and so on. As the number of mesh size increases, the size of the particles decreases.
Mesh size is not a precise measurement of particle size.
In addition, the finer the weave, the closer the wires getting together. Eventually there is no space between the wires at all.
WHAT IS A MICRON?
A micron is another measurement of particle size. A micron is one-millionth of a meter or one twenty-five thousandth of an inch.
