Explanation:
The order of the words really depends on the context. Here are the pertinent excerpts from the URL's cited at the bottom:

"Il filamento di tungsteno è collocato dietro sette fori del diametro calibrato di 1 mm..."

"The tungsten wire is located behind seven 1 mm diameter calibrated holes"

Another note:

If the type of vessel you are describing is meant for pets/animals, you may wish to call them "ventilation holes":

Oh yes, and \"forellino\" is defined as \"small hole\", so you could also say \"small, calibrated diameter holes\", or something similar.
