I don't know what the formula would be but here are some conversions:

Looks like mesh is pretty large holes.

You find a online tool for the conversion under: http://www.intertunnel.de/e_news_downloads_01.htm

It is good I now have some hold on the subject, but the above links give different results so it does not make things clearer for me.

Mesh size is the number of openings per linear inch. To convert to microns you also need to know the wire thickness of the mesh (in microns).

The formula would be:

Mesh opening in Microns = (254/mesh size) - (mesh size x wire diameter in microns)

Oops formula should be:

Mesh opening in Microns = (2540/mesh size) - (mesh size x wire diameter in microns)

I created a formula that has pretty good accuracy for the conversion of mesh to microns and vice-versa.

The formula is as follows, and it has reasonable accuracy from 45 to 400 mesh.

microns = 15000/mesh and this can also be written as mesh = 15000/microns.

You can find my recent article on this subject in the December 2008 issue of Powder and Bulk Engineer (the article is available online for free).
