Model simplification

Modeling perforated metal plate

I need to model a beam tube pump plenum which has a beam tube with slots parallel to the beam, as well as 1.5 mm thick perforated plates covering the slots. The slots would not create a large number of facets, but the holes in the perforated plates make for a very large model (seeĀ  images attached). I had hoped to analyze the real configuration, and then create a simplified equivalent model to go in the accelerator ring model (the pump repeats 148 times). Can you provide some guidance as to how to approach this model?
