Stainless steel reusable oil filter

Anyone have any experience using these? I am considering purchasing a Scotts filter over the K&N and just curious if it really is worth it.

I am not interested in the money savings that would be with the reusable, but more interested in the data of how well it does its job. A brief "highlighted" product information of the Scotts stainless steel reusable states:

"Scotts Stainless Steel Oil Filters have superior filtration. Made from laser-cut, medical grade, type 304 stainless steel micronic filter cloth, to provide unmatched protection against oil contamination and the resulting engine damage. This filter provides 200% more filter area in many cases. It filters down to 35 microns "absolute" which is 3 times better than most good paper and brass filters that will pass particles in the 90 to 95 micron range. A human hair is about 140 microns. The pleat seam is welded in our filter, not glued like paper filters, and will withstand up to 600 degrees Fahrenheit!"


I could not find any data on the K&N to compare. Am I reading too far into this?

How many wires per inch in the 90 to 95 micron rating? I used a reference guide like this one shown here: http://www.bwire.com/

They measure their mesh using the number of wires per inch, so a 10 x 10 mesh has 10 openings and 10 wires per square inch. Would the 95 micron be considered a 95 mesh? Anyone have any expertise on this?

Just trying to look for some more information on wire mesh sizing.
