    For what it's worth, I saw one of these filters at HD and took it out of the box.It was still in plastic and folded, but the actual material is pretty thick, and from the outside of the bag the carbon looks spread pretty well throughtout the fibers. The only other carbon impregnated filters I've seen were the "WEB" brand filters and weren't suitable, the "honeywell" ones like in this tek appear to be much better.

      I like your design. I've been playing around with the carbon prefilters myself. I finally solved my odor problem by placing a HEPA filter unit in the space and turning it on full blast. The HEPA should help prevent mold and fungi problems as well. I supplement with a masking agent such as incense also.

        everything you can do helps. do you notice a difference bounty?
        hey , a tip on the cloth or nylon, do a wrap of plastic sheeting over the screen or chix wire before you put the cloth on. put the cloth over the plastic and then pull the plastic out from under the fabric. works slick.

        edit/ i meant to add that if ur usin nylons it helps to roll em up like like a hot sexy chic would unrollem to take em off. then you unroll em over the screen.
        beats tryin to pull them all they way around the tube. later

              Mine's not as pretty - more ghetto than anything, but it appears to be working. We'll see when things get stinky.

              Here I have fans pulling air from the cab. One pulling from the veg/clone section and one pulling from the flowering section into the carbon filer set up. I also have fans pulling in fresh air from outside the cab.

              Here is a view of the carbon filter set up. I used 3X4 flanges for the passage holes. connected fans on one side (drawing - no back pressure present if you're wondering). A Sanitary tee and a 90 degree elbow, connecting both shelves to the carbon filter.

              Another view of it.

                  i like the looks of this carbon filter and design a lot... even with the missing pictures it seems like the easiest in fact maybe the only one i sorta understand at all..

                  i hope i can find some of those things...

                      Hey cool, one of my old threads has been ported from hempcultivation! What a blast from the past.

                        Huh, I don't know why those pictures aren't showing up. They were all in my gallery, and I didn't delete them or anything.

                          This is a cool design, how long does that filter keep working? I used the web one in earlier systems and they would not be heavy duty enough to last more than a month at best. If you want a more robust air scrubbing, for about the same cost, and ease of build, check out my "simple scrubber" thread, the link is in the DIY stickies. I may try this idea on a new office scrubber to see how it works over time, the simplicity is attractive.

                            I built an even larger one than the one pictured, 5" diameter, and change the filter sheet once per grow.

                              Would this work for a 420watt cab? The size is 44inches long 68inches high and 24inches wide.

                                bump...

                                So how is the filter holding up?
