## Mesh to Micron Converter

**5 mesh size is approximately 2980.00 microns, use this mesh to micron converter to find out mesh size conversion. **

**Micron = 25,400 / Mesh Number****Micron = 14,900 / Mesh Number**(for rough estimates)**Micron = 25,400 / (Width of Wire + Width of Opening)**(for detailed calculations)

This converter helps translate between two different units of measurement for **particle size** or **screen opening**: **mesh** and **microns**.

**Mesh** is a unit that refers to the **number of openings** per linear inch in a sieve or screen. For example, a **100-mesh screen** has **100 openings** per linear inch. On the other hand, a **micron** (also known as a **micrometer**) is a **metric unit** of length equal to **one-millionth of a meter**.

The **mesh to micron conversion** tool allows professionals to easily **switch** between these two units, facilitating better **communication** and **standardization** across different applications and industries.

## How to Convert Mesh into Micron

To convert mesh to micron:

**Determine**the mesh size you want to convert.**Use**the conversion formula (discussed in the next section) or consult a**reliable conversion table**.**Apply**the formula or look up the corresponding micron value in the table.

Converting mesh to micron involves using a **specific formula** or referencing **standardized conversion tables**.

## Mesh to Micron Conversion Formula

The formula to convert mesh to micron is:

**Micron = 25400 / (Mesh Number)**

This formula is derived from the fact that there are **25,400 microns** in one inch. By dividing this number by the mesh number (openings per inch), we obtain the **size of each opening** in microns.

To convert mesh to microns, there are several formulas and methods that can be used.

**Alternative Formula for Approximation**

For a rough estimate, particularly for mesh sizes between 50 and 400, you can use:

**Micron = 14,900 / Mesh Number**

This formula provides a quick way to estimate the micron size based on the mesh number.

**Wire Thickness Consideration**

To account for the wire thickness in mesh production, you can use a more detailed approach:

**Sum the width of the wire**used to produce the mesh and the width of the opening.**Divide 25,400**(the number of microns per inch) by the resulting total to determine the size in microns.

## What is 100 Mesh in Microns

Micron = 25400 / (Mesh Number)

Micron = 25400 / 100

Micron = 254

**100 mesh is equivalent to approximately 254 microns**.

This means that a **100-mesh screen** has openings that are about **254 microns wide**. Particles smaller than this size would **pass through** the screen, while larger particles would be **retained**.

## How Many Mesh is 1 Micron

Mesh Number = 25400 / Micron

Plugging in **1 micron**:

Mesh Number = 25400 / 1

Mesh Number = 25400

This result indicates that **1 micron is equivalent to 25400 mesh**. However, it’s important to note that this is a **theoretical value**.

In practice, mesh sizes this fine are not commonly used or manufactured. The **finest mesh sizes** typically available are around **400 to 635 mesh**, corresponding to about **37 to 20 microns**, respectively.

## How Many Microns is a 20 Mesh Screen

Micron = 25400 / (Mesh Number)

Micron = 25400 / 20

Micron = 1270

A** 20 mesh screen has openings of approximately 1270 microns**.

This relatively **coarse mesh size** would allow particles smaller than **1270 microns** (or **1.27 millimeters**) to **pass through**, while retaining larger particles.

35 | 25400 / 35 | 726 microns |

60 | 25400 / 60 | 423 microns |

100 | 25400 / 100 | 254 microns |

200 | 25400 / 200 | 127 microns |

325 | 25400 / 325 | 78 microns |

400 | 25400 / 400 | 63.5 microns |
