Creating a small enclosed space to prevent contamination
    #1635285 - 06/15/03 04:57 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Hello I recently had this great idea....

Basically my last batch of mushrooms was ruined due to mold so in addition to buying filters, etc I came up with the idea that during the critical phase where I cut up the cakes and sandwich them between a thin layer of vermiculite I perform this in a small sealed temporary structure.

I was thinking of buying a tent 5 1/2 feet squared and sealed off the vents.
Before doing anything I'd spray the whole thing down with Lysol and put a HEPA filter inside. Then I'd go to work in a sterile environment.

The problem I can't seem to find a structure suitable for this.
It seems most tents would just collapse on themselves.

Does anyone have any ideas of what else I could purchase (maybe on ebay) for a fair price that would do the trick. I don't have the patience to construct anything.

Thanks and feel free to use this idea even though its mere commonsense.

Jonathan

lol. Your building a Glovebox/FlowHood. The same idea is used by have a box with gloves and sterilizing the inside, and i flow hood just pushes Clean air onto your Work area, I think these 2 options would be better for you.

Just use your Bathroom. :smile:

Yeap, search the faqs, you'll find many information regarding glove box and flowhood.

Not too x-filish...

I've heard of two or three growers around who are using tents! TENTS! inside their houses. They have some 2x3x8' wooden plastic-wrapped containers inside somehow...

My cat tells me she likes tupperware, easy to clean and seal and store and move around gently.

BUT - If you wanna try your idea, try looking for those octigonal (sp?) shaped tents!
