Perforated metal strainers and filters can offer superior resistance to bending and crimping, making them an ideal choice over wire mesh filters in applications where rigidity and durability are desired. Varying perforation patterns and percent open area also allows engineers to achieve desired flow rates and size sorting.
See the chart below for a variety of standard open areas. (Please note that the charts below are for reference purposes only. Hole pattern will depend on gauge of material.) Our custom perforated metal filters and strainers are always manufactured to your specifications, with a wide range of materials, hole sizes, and perforation patterns available.
