Mountain Air Carbon Filter Big Air Series 100x400
Activated carbon filters used in hydroponic green houses and grow rooms are the most effective means of cleansing the extracted air to remove any odours.
These filters work by a method called adsorption (as opposed to absorption). Simply put, adsorption means that odour-causing molecules stick to the inside of the activated carbon without the carbon itself increasing in size.
Premium carbon filters such as the Mountain Air® range not only have a useful life much longer than competing brands, they also retain odour-causing molecules more effectively, which leads to a later breakthrough point. Users of these filters can rest assured knowing that their extraction air will be odourless right up until it’s time for a new filter.
Overlay the pressure drop graph of your extraction fan on the graph and you will find an intersection (crossover point) between the two operating curves. Tracing down from this intersection you can read the airflow of a particular fan / filter combination.
CFM = M3/Hr ÷ 1.699 INS WG = Pa ÷ 249.
You can use two main fan types with the Mountain Air® Filter (Mixed-Flow & Centrifugal Fans).
