Having spent a considerable amount of time testing this screen side by side with the IMS 200 micron screen i believe this screen is better at acting as a breakwater to arrest the surge of water into the brew chamber as the rising piston seals clear the inlet ports.  We have added holes to the centre of the former that sits behind the 35µM mesh to promote water flow through the centre of the puck as a lever group naturally delivers a higher flow at the circumference of the group

If the screen fails to break the water surge into the brew chamber the incoming water will wash out the top of the puck, increasing the chances of channelling occurring.  This is much more of an issue with lever machines as the flow rate into the brew chamber is exponentially higher than for an electric pump machine; the brew chamber is filled with water almost instantaneously with a lever machine, whereas a pump machine chugs away for several seconds to get the job done

I regard it as a specialist screen for lever espresso machines, and is my first choice
