a traditional measure of the fineness of a wire screen (such as the screening used in a sieve). Higher sieve numbers correspond to finer screens. In The U.S., 10 sieve fabric has openings of 2 millimeters; 100 sieve has openings of 0.15 millimeters. A similar but slightly different scale was used in Britain. In the metric system, sieve fineness is specified by the diameter of the openings, in millimeters or micrometers. Link: sieve comparison table from Screen Technology Group, Inc.
