Laminar Flow Hood Substitute?
    #11210929 - 10/08/09 10:54 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)

Greetings,

  So I was poking around the forumns, and became a bit inspired. I found the following:  http://tinyurl.com/ygelbgy

  What do folks think, would this turned on its side act like an inexpensive Laminar Flow Hood?

  It seems too easy to be true... I must be missing something?

  Sorry if this has been asked/answered before, but I did search and didn't note it as being a potentially redundant post.

It's not laminar.

Hi Doc,

  Thanks for the quick response. I guess where I'm confused is that I've read several homemade flow-hood tek's, and they used a fan coupled w/ a HEPA filter, which is exactly what this appears to be.

  As stated, it seems too easy/cheap, so any feedback is appreciated. I am no doubt missing something.

  Sondor

  PS, your mini-mono/shotgun hybrid tek was super well appreciated and enjoyed.

Do some research AKA Google CLICK ME FOR RESULTS and read what laminar flow is all about and you will understand why that would not work.. Also never buy one, build your own and save yourself 300-600 bucks..

Ah, thank you both. I see now that the key is 'smooth airflow', and in fact, if I were to proceed w/ using this device, I not only wouldn't succeed, but I'd probably introduce contaminants w/ turbulent airflow!

  Thank you kindly,

  Sondor

No prob, if and when you decide to build a flow hood check out my journal, got some info in there from when I built mine.
