What does mesh size mean

Figuring out mesh sizes is simple. The number of openings in one inch of screen is the mesh size. So a 4 mesh screen means there are four little squares across one linear inch of screen. A 100 mesh screen has 100 openings, and so on. Note, therefore that as the number describing the mesh size increases, the particle size decreases.
