fan filter material

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
hi,
im wondering if woven wire mesh is good material for a 200mm fan dust filter ?.i cant really find any 200mm dust filters.

i have seen some mesh on ebay but woven mesh comes in different sizes as in

120 mesh
200 mesh
400 mesh

which one would be best for most dust filtering and minimal cfm loss

thanks in advance

this ^

panty hose / stockings.. just ask before you take them lol


maybe have a quick read of THIS

They don't seem quite as good as commercial filters, but for a cheap & quick fix.
I'm no expert but I'm pretty sure there would be different thread counts to cater for different uses.
